I took the freedom to "fix" your photo, i think it became alot better.
I opened the image in Photoshop CS3, used the ruler tool to follow the horizon, used Arbitrary rotation (rotates image according to the ruler tool). Then i re-cropped a bit of the edges away, but left a bit of the parts where there was no image, of the water on the bottom where i cloned in some new water from the other side. After that i used the Patch tool to make a circle around the dust specks, chose "Patch: Source" and used the mouse to pull the dust speck over to a part which had somewhat equal colors and style.

Here is the finished image, took me about 35-40secs, seriously..

PS: if you dont have photoshop or don't wanna do it yourselves, you could upload the RAW/original JPEG file, and i will fix it for you on the original image as well.. The image is actually very good according to "my standards"

Damn Brit

I think you could crop the top and bottom, just the sun and the choppers would look great.

I like the pic, but if your are going to crop anything I would do just the top down to just above the cloud on the right. But I think the pic looks fine the way it is.
