Nice colors and long exposure effect. I gave this a 6 in voting.
Photograph Information, Technicals & Composition Review
I wonder whether a little deeper DOF would have allowed more detail in the water and fore rocks to come into play. Compositionally it is quite sound, although the unlevel horizon bothers me slightly, which I imagine a perspective correction or even 'straightening' would fix. The flag is an interesting element, but seems a bit out of place composed within the frame as is.
The colors are good in the sky and on the water, but there seems a slight cast on the fore rocks, but could be enhanced by the sunset glow and the color of the rocks themself, either way, I wonder about tweaking them a fraction in pp to lessen the.. magenta (not sure).
Comments, Score & Placement Review
154/419 and a score of 5.84 is decent in a Free Study.
An average of 6.5 from your commenters seems like some honest voting that matches some of their comments. I agree with the placement of the horizon and also wonder about a variation of that to showcase other elements of the image, however it does still work as is.
Some tweaking in pp to adjust the color and some slight perspective correction would likely have produced a stronger image. Whether a variation in crop would enhance the image, I'm doubtful - I think it would just produce 'another' image, showcasing the top or bottom part of the image, which both have their own unique elements.
