Hey again guys,

I'm not the best at knowing what the best things to do to a picture is so I thought I'd ask all you lovely people for your input.
I took this picture the other night at the beach. If you feel so inclined, go ahead and edit it yourself but I'd love to know what you did to it so I could replicate it in other pictures :) Knowledge is power!

Btw, I'm just a beginner so if the image is so bad it's not even worth taking it further, just let me know. I won't be hurt :)

Honestly? I'd reshoot.

I see what you were going for; it looks like you were trying to use the lights as leading lines, which is a cool idea.

The hill (I think that's what it is) in the background is underexposed, and it looks like that set of lights is floating in space. Acutally, most of the image is underexposed.

Can you provide EXIF data? That would help to advise on what you should do differently next time.
