This seems a bit lacking in contrast and saturation, the scene behind looks like a watercolour painting.
I gave it an S curve to give it some bite!
I prefer your low tide one. The very choppy water spoils this for me.

Thanks all. Dennis this was a problem the water was neither smooth nor raging. But since neither of us has been out for a while it was at least a chance to get some shots.....

Yes, it does look overdone, a case for going back and starting again. I can't really say this one floats my boat
I quite like this, but I think something in between the original and Chris's edit would be best.
Funny, I did do an in between one, but it still didn't bite enough for me, so added a bit more lol
Maybe try a mask to just boost the background?
Perhaps the background should be left as a backdrop rather than an attempt made to bring it to be more than that? It works for me as originally done but does benefit from a bit of a boost.
We are here to learn.
Some things are relevant, some aren't...just rejoice in the fact that at least you seem to have the choice to decide which is which.
Save the bother, I'll just bin it. t's only a very early attempt by my wife trying to get a photo or two. Thanks
