I know this is a typical ocean shot, but I just wanted to know how others feel about it. Please be truthful because I base a lot of my future shots on this type of angle and focus.

I really like the shot. I like the subject. Good composition, I think. I'm diggin' the colors as well. It looks like some extra blur was added in post...I like it...but I wouldn't do that in every one of these shots. Very "Wish you were here!" postcard-like.
I think the way you focused on just one plant, with a some more in the middle ground (lower-left) worked really well. The water looks great, too. I think I'm not a big fan of the clouds in the background. The slight gray of the clouds seems to slightly take away from the "paradise" feel of the rest of the image.

I agree with you 100% about the clouds...there was a fog rolling in and I missed my opportunity for a clear shot. Your comments have been very helpful.

I love the colors and the softness. It looks like a dream sequence.

i was going to leave a comment on your site, but the add comment link seems to be broken in firefox...
the photo is rad, the first thing i noticed was the dead space on the right, maybe a little crop could make this more interesting?
*edit it seems your comment link is linking to /25s/#addcomment , not 25s/index.php?showimage=240#addcomment (so it goes to the main page before adding a comment)

Thanks Darkphoenix and danN,
@danN: Looks like the addcomment doesn't work correctly from the direct link in Firefox. I don't know how to fix it, but thanks for the heads up. =)
