Lots of noise. I also don't get the feel of desolation IMO

It is a lovely shot and the open sea is desolate. I don't know what has caused the quality problem with the noise, perhaps just converting it to jpeg? Also, it is a good idea to straighten the image horizon.

very high level of noise...did u try NEAT IMAGING it?

Horizon could be straightened in photoshop and neat image would take out the noise. This has a little potential.

I'm afraid it is a bit grainy and tilted, and lacks a real focal point.

nice view

Too noisy (looks like high ISO)

a lot of noise and while the clouds are interesting it comes across as not very powerful

nice view but not a very good resolution

Isn't the horizon tilted there a bit? A little vignetting in the upper corners -- what caused that? A lot of speckled color separation in the water. Perhaps this is just an artifact of over compression -- not sure.

I'm not sure why, but the quality of the image seems to be low. Did you crop it at all, or are you taking pictures at a low resolution or compressing them alot? Also, the horizon is not even (which, in my opinion, it should be in a picture such as this) Also, There is nothing that really grabs and holds the attention. It is for these reasons that it will get a lower score from me. I would suggest looking into what you can do to improve the overall quality of the file as well as putting a little bit more time into framing an image.

shot has a lot of noise in it. it comes off a little one dimensional

A lot of pixilation in this shot hurts it.

The coloring is very mottled. Perhaps the effect was intentional, but I find it distracting.
