Not a bad shot at all but hardly good either, if it would have had more pleasing colour and better image quality, specifically sharpness/contrast I would probably have given this a 6-7. However, the shot has a serious purple cast to it and the sky is very odd to say the least, too overexposed and hazy. You sure your monitor colour is calibrated?

The family in the foreground seem to be out of focus. Also, the horizon doesn't look level; see this page for information on how to correct this.

Too "snapshot" of a photo. The sky is way blown out, shadows too dark. The detail is not good, and the colors get blotchy in the water near the horizon.

a bit overexposed ... the sky is too burnt out ... I think the excessive amount of space on the left side is an attempt to apply the rule of thirds in a situation where it really doesn't help the shot.

Nice scenery. The image seems a bit flat or oof hard to say without zooming in. A bump in contrast would help either way.

try getting in closer to your subject - the family gets lost in the scenery. The colors look off here - might try adjusting your blues and cyans

The lighting is too harsh for me on this one. Maybe zoom in on the people a bit more?
