Thank you all for your replies!

xavier, I got up at 5:30 AM and was on location by 6:15. By 7:00 the sun was way up and the light had changed completely.

I have someone coming to look at this Tues., maybe to buy it. Wish me luck!

I quite like the overall effect of the picture and the feeling it generates, but I do get the feeling that it is a bit flat. The strength of your colours do not seem to vary enough to give your picture much depth. I hope I am not being too critical, but I was always taught to be aware that in any land- or sea-scape there is a horizon, a middle ground & a foreground & the strength of your colours should reflect this (I think it is called aerial perspective)
