Congrats on the FS top10.
I don't think this is the lone cypress on 17 mile drive - that one's still living, with leaves and all. Not that it matters, it's still a beautiful shot :)

the foreground looks over processed and noisy.

Stunning image, superb clarity, colours, gradation and detail. This is no doubt doing well as DPC eye-candy seascapes do. Front page. The earth curvature is in part due the lens and I guess the norm is flat horizontal? 8

Woah! Beautiful color gradient in the sky, and wonderful silhouette of the Cypress. The subtle red palette on the ground moss, and extended exposure smoothening of the waves.... Wow!
The border is ridiculous though - it's almost on the verge of reducing the picture's awesomeness - I sincerely wish you didn't use a border or used one less bold/obtrusive.
