I agree, I think if you played with a little PP you could add some "pop".

Done! (change brightness with photobucket)

The picture wasn't dark in my computer?

Thanks for your comment

I like it, but wish the palm tree wasn't so close to the edge of the frame.

A very beautiful scene to be at.
The image should reflect the emotions you were feeling when taking the shot.
That's hard to do in bright, high contrast full sun.
It needed to be taken later on in the afternoon, or early in the morning.
I think it also lacks a bold subject. The palm tree doesn't capture my attention as much as the pristine water.
Nice picturesque scenery though. Still worth keeping as a memory of where you'd been and how you felt when you were there.
