Bob, I have this thing, and admittedly it might only be MY thing, but I do try to avoid objects touching the edge or following along the edge of an horizon line wherever possible, as it just feels uncomfortable to me for some reason and the rock silhouettes in the bottom of your shot are doing just that.

So do you have a version taken from a slightly different PoV?

But don't worry if you haven't, because as I say, this may not be a 'thing' for you, or for anyone else for that matter  :)

That is something I would struggle with as well.  But I can imagine if one raised the camera height to get the rocks below horizon, perhaps that nice moon might have gone out of the frame or gotten too close to the edge.  And if the camera was lowered to get the rocks to cut above the horizon, there would have been much thinner blue water layer in the picture.  Kind of a tricky shot.  I do like the fact that various elements in the scene balance each other - left to right.

Lovely depiction of the tranquility after sun has gone down and everyone has left the beach (I am assuming this is on the west coast.)

Thanks for sharing.

That was my first thought but then there is a Ragged Point near Big Sur in CA so I thought it can't be dawn.

I agree with Dave.  I avoid this compositional characteristic whenever possible.
