I like it a lot as it is but more in-keeping with the Digital-Art section, I'd process it much more heavily. I like the water at the front where it's crisp but it's less pleasing at the top of the shot where it's out of focus so I'd crop a bit tighter as below. This version used AutoHDR ('Detailed' preset) to bring out all of the detail, unsharp mask (radius 50, strength 20) to add a bit of 'weight' back to it and a gamma correction of 0.9 to darken it further because the HDR treatment tends to make it a bit bright overall. I also wonder if you'd taken the shot at a slightly different time of day with the shadows running parallel to the sea instead of perpendicular you might have got a different result.

Great processing job. The rocks are all you need but the water is a nice touch too. I just love this shot. After looking at it for a while Id crop off the out of focus section at the top.

Thanks for the comments guys. I thought this thread was dead...

Martin, I think I like the original better, but I see what you're getting at being that I put it in the digital art section. I put it here because you can already tell it's been processed quite a bit and wasn't sure if it counted as photog or digital art. I always welcome people to have there go at processing my photos though. It's nice to see other peoples perspectives.

I do, however, like the idea of cropping off a bit of the top as mentioned. In looking at it now, I see the water up top looks out of focus.
