Composition, exposure and the general feel of this photo is quite pleasing, but I find the image (at least on my monitor) to be terribly over-sharpened.

I like the image but sharpening of the birds, the haloes are visible. Other than that, it's a very sweet shot.

Ouch! Way too sharp for human consumption. Other than that a great image. Love the sky/sea/cloud composition.

yes another re: sharpening... Curious though...is the time set correct...is this moonlight? or just not set in camera...wondered if in dark is the contributer to "earth rolling". What a wonderful place to return to...though don't know how often you would be treated to that fine cloud formation...Yes, nice seeing....

This is an unusually nice B&W composition. Everything works together.

Maybe step back on the sharpening a little and see if you still like the results. I find that images from the coast typically donít need a lot of sharpening.

Nicely done, overall.

I find that textured rocks can take lots of sharpening and still look natural and good.  Things against the sky is another matter...as are clouds. I would suggest sharpening the rocks like you have here with a new layer and mask and then using a different (less aggressive) sharpening in the sky.
