Without seeing the photograph, it would seem that you have taken the original and given it your own input. I find the sky rather oppressive, although that could just be me and it might have been your intention. Whatever, I think you have taken a photo forward with paint. On the one hand I'd like to see more depth with increased texture in the foreground, but then again that might detract from the feeling emptyness.

Just a repetition of the brownish red in the foreground. Yes ... ? No ... ?

Adam, what did you want to portray with this painting? As is, it's fairly empty. Did you want to portray this silence of the beach and sea? I"m interested to know.
