your horizon is tilted, and your colors seem very muted and flat.

Too dull for a landscape shot, the sky lack clouds. Could have use a ND to increase the shutter time to make the wave look beautiful.

It is a pain that a 14mm become a 28 on 4/3. The frame still look very narrow.

1- I suggest you flickr more landscape examples to get the "right" landscaping tones.
2- I would have done it in landscape mode - [its landscape after all] - with the rock on the left and the vast ocean on the right; hopefully with some fluffy puffy low clouds too. What you've shown here is that amount in the foreground which is unnecessary. My eyes were drawn to the whitewashed waves.

Good try, and keep shooting!

If the rock was your intended subject, why the need to include all that foreground mess?

The scene is also very flat. Looks like its taken in midday sun.

Probably you might want to crop off the top portion (containing the rock), and left with the 'teh' coming into the sea of 'milk'. Rename the title and emphasize on the milky sea. :)

This shot reminds me of chinese landscape paintings.... perhaps the composition could include less sky making the thick sea foam look like clouds.

I think theres also some sea spray on your lens/filter. :confused: water drops.

Another version will be removed the rock and rename it as "milky sea" as follows
