It looks nice - but it doesn't hold my eye anywhere.  No real interesting focal point or contrast.  Maybe try it in B&W?

I like it.

Sometimes I think that there is too much conformity to the "rules" of photography - e.g. "nothing to hold my eye".  This picture works for me because it is calm, restful and dreamlike; a set of emotions rather than a 'documentary' image.

If a pod of killer whales happened to surface at the right time and in the right place the pic would be different but not necessarily better.

thank you for your comments.
what you're saying is right, I wasn't trying to have something that popped out of the picture to make it perfect, but only a quiet and relaxed image...nothing else.

The top left 1/4 of the image is very interesting from an abstract point of view.  Top right 1/4 also has possibilities.  Nice tonal range overall.  Would be interesting to see where you go with this - is it a one off or part of something larger?
