I think the image looks a bit muddy because of the blue cast. I am not sure if you wanted that, but if not, maybe you could try Auto Levels and see how it turns out. It's pretty accurate most of the time, and if it's off, still will give you an idea.
Nice to see you shooting Dun Laoghaire. I enjoy shooting around there.

Very cool shot. The composition is exquisite. I would go ahead and crop a little more on each side (so as to eliminate the partially visible boats). Also, the glare is a little harsh - detracting from the detail of the water and the boats themselves. And by this I don't mean get rid of the shimmer - I like that a lot. I think though that you could reduce the backlighting enough that it leaves the shimmer, yet allows you to recover some of the lost detail in the water and boats.

I like the overall blue color of the image, but the sky seems a bit grey - maybe a little more "umph" on the colors there. Also, by bringing out more detail in the water & boats, I think you'll find that you can eke out a bit more variation of colors without detracting from the "blue" feel of the shot.

Very nice. Just my 2 cents...
