What works:
-- The large boulder in the forground anchors the image though it might work better closer to the bottom of the image.

-- White balance and exposure seem to be right

What doesn't seem to work:
-- The line of the beach is cutoff at the left of the image so the viewer is led out of the photo rather than through it. Showing the full curve all the way to the pier I believe would give the image more depth. Also the peninsula on the right doesn't add anything as it is quite dark and doesn't show much detail.

(sorry Neil, I stole your method for this exercise as it helps with getting my ideas down)

Landscape class exercise "analysis" (more critical than the usual DPC comment):

Hits. Good colors, good depth of field, good sharpness. I like the use of foreground here to bring the viewer into the photo.

Misses. However, in this case the background elements are small/far away and the foreground dominates instead of leading in. Perhaps if that one big rock weren't there, or you shot from a slightly different angle to exclude it, it would have been a better use of foreground lead-in.
