You can use the ruler tool in Photoshop to fix the horizon line from being on an angle.

I like it but I have two suggestions: fix horizon so it is level and include the rest of the subject and position him at 1/3.

The horizon is slightly skewed. The vastness of the ocean and the insignificance of your subject shows good porportion. Also, the two different shades of blue really stand out nicely.

Nice off-balanced composition. Horizon tilt is a bit of a problem, as are the cut off hands.

I like the colours, a lot but what about the proportion, 3:1?
(all the pictures I've taken of my husband look like this: a hat, shades and beard, no face - not the photographer's fault though!)

I kind of like this as a candid portrait but I don't see how it meets the challenge. I like the extreme of placing the subject to the very edge of the frame with the expanse of water and sky filling the rest. I guess in a way the composition demonstrates proportion. I think your title has thrown me off. Fill-flash would reveal more detail in the subject's face, although you might have lost that intriguing blur of his hand at the edge. Overall, I think it's an effective image.

I'd like this better with a corrected horizon. Afraid it's a pet peeve of mine.
