Part of the sky is blown white...but is it more natural to let it be?

Nice photo Eric, I actually really like the boats in the BG on the horizon, I think they're quite interesting. I would probably crop 3/4 of an inch off the top just to get rid of the bright spot where the sun is almost showing, but that would still allow for the effect of the rays to show. Really nice photo I love the colours. Cheers!

Easy solution to that problem - crop it out. I would also crop a bit on the left, that keeps the picture from being too wide and puts more emphasis on the boats.

You've enhanced the yellow a bit, and that's ok, but a slightly less yellow scene also looks good. I would also lighten the shadows somewhat so we can see some detail in the large boat.

And the photo tilts a little down to the right.

I would crop all of the white from the top. Also, at the left, I would crop where the hillside goes to level. You've cut that far object in half.

A nice sunset with good colours. The bright area is burned but limited in a corner. The background is quite distracting, pity because the boat in the foreground is very appealing
