    Hard to give much critique since the photo is very small. From what I can see it looks great, nice exposure good comp,the sun shining through is the icing on the cake. Can't say if it is perfectly sharp/in focus, if there is noise or banding, etc.

    How do I make this larger? I pulled it directly off of facebook. And this is the size that it gives me.

    I agree, it's a really nice photo, and hard to give C&C due to the size of it.

    The two things that I'll comment on:
    --That really bright light right in the middle is pretty distracting, and I'd try to burn it or something to make it a bit less glaring.
    --I wonder if it would improve the composition a bit to crop it so that the bottom of the pier comes in at the front right edge of the photo, instead of having that little bit of distance where it's just water.

    Don't use FB for your host.
    There are lots of free/pay services that allow hosting at all sizes.

    You want C&C?

    You can get many types of C&C - here I am giving you C&C from a fine art image standpoint.
    I have no problem with HDR, layers, etc etc or whatever processing style you are using. If you are going to do it, make it look natural.
    You need natural shadow and highlights to convey emotion. - If you are relying on removing shadow to bring out detail and saturating heavily, you will lose emotion.

    Lack of shadow on the part of the pier that is shore side of the sun
    Water is too light
