    my super newbie comment, looks tilted to the left? SG sun got so big meh?

    Nice catch, I find it might work better for me if some foreground details were there...

    I notice dim images of people in the lower right corner. To me, if you enhance the images to show the outlines of these people more clearly will give more scale and punch to the picture?

    Wah, an old bird claiming to be a newbie


    Long time no see James. Anyway, I would prefer the outline of the beach/seaside to be more prominent.

    Can PS to make the sea brighter and more sparkling ??

    Actually, the picture looks better if crop off the lower 1/2.

    "Pic removed"

    I have done a bit of changes, hope you won't mind. I try to do as little changes as possible to
    preserve the original photo.
    Will bring it down later.

    Your version post PS seems to have lots of noise, i guess introduced during shadow/highlight command? you might want to either lower amount of lightening or mask to only apply command to water+beach+people?

    maybe if u have taken the shot with sun partially shielded by the palm leaves, more can be done post-imaging processing, as, I think, the dynamic range in the pic will be better. Also i think better compositionally.
