I really like it. The clouds really set this picture apart and the 1/3 division of water and 2/3 sky are a text book composition.

good cloud texture, which is really the highlight of this shot.

i agree with the comments on the landmass, looks like you may have brought up the shadows a bit much, leaving them soft and washed out. i would just leave it dark, its not a main subject here.

Thanks guys.
I actually intentionally brought out the color in the foreground as you can see from the unedited version below. I agree with your point.

In this rendition the intensity of colors in the sky, which in my opinion make this picture stand out, are lessened. I think I prefer the first version.
