Oktay... welcome to TE. I hope you're joking with us with this photo...

Unless you are trying to create a distinctive, artistic statement with your images, the first thing you do is rotate the image so the horizon is level. If this were an accurate representation of the Virgin Islands, we would expect the world's largest tsunami sometime soon when all this water flows off to the right... ;-)

Colors and details are fine here, but the composition simply doesn't work. I'd recommend you check out Jose Elias description of his workflow, which resides in the Tips and Techniques forum. Here is a link.

This is a good place to learn how to take good photos and learn how to present them effectively in this medium. Good luck to you!

Thanks for your comments. That the horizon should be level is one of the only things I know about proper photography. Although I do like this one photo of mine.

I'm sure there are a lot of things I can learn from the Tips and Techniques forum too. I figure, I can learn everything there is to learn, then still shoot my pictures with a crooked horizon. At least I would have enough knowledge then to support my decision :)
