i think this could use more contrast and a bit more saturation to give it some punch. right now it's feels sort of bland and a little washed out. i'm not sure about the cropping either, maybe consider a different aspect ratio or something. just my ideas.

I have to agree with Mike. I would try a panoramic crop so the horizon was at about 2/3. It crops alot of the sky but might help the viewer find those people in the bottom left and discover the scale of the picture.*

I have to agree with both Mike and RedRhino, needs more punch, and I too, think the horizon line wasn't centered. This picture is very good but with a few changes it couldbecome an outstanding photo. I have a question though, where did you take your meter?

A quick try.... didn't have access to Photoshop to do it right. I would keep the bottom left a bit lighter...but need a better hammer
