There was 12 minutes of shooting this sunrise & every image created was amazingly different, really reminding me of how incredibly valuable every minute is.

I am really liking this image. At first I was tempted to say, move the horizon up, but I like the sky colors. In the FG the slow shutter speed created lines of surf receding towards the dock remains (looks like train tracks to me). Nice leading lines there.

I am happy with this just as you presented it. Great technique and visualization.

I like it. It has a very relaxing feel over it with great colors.

Robert covered just about everything. I like the muted tones. I dunno if it is lens distortion, curve of the earth or tilted horizon, but somethings going on there, might wanna check it. Otherwise great capture.

I love the mood too. I lwould go with RAM's first instinct, to point the camera down a bit more thus moving the horizon up. A second choice would be the crop below. (Paul was right with the tilted horizon as I also leveled the horizon using the Ruler Tool.) For me, pointing the camera down a bit and including more foreground would have created a stronger image.
