I think you put too much grain in as it just looks like a badly tuned analogue tv…
dial it back a touch and try to bring out more detail in the sky and I think you might have something much more interesting…
I assume the boats are the main focus? A lower angle or more foreground might help the eyes settle on the boats.
hope that helps.

Neither are well processed I'm afraid. The first has coloured noise, which just looks terrible. On the scond it looks like you've smoothed it all out, not sure why.
The colour of the image is good, and I like the composition. If you do want to add noise (which is fine, I like adding noise to certain images) make sure you add monochrome noise, not full colour, and you dial it back while viewing your image at 100% so you don't overdo it.
It's a nice image, don't wreck it with poor editing work…

I like the composition, although it could probably be improved with a bit more foreground, and the colors are great, but even with the reduced graininess the boats just sort of mush up into one long strip of varying colors, even in the enlarged image.

Out of the four I like the smooth one best. Even the abstractness of the boats though In agree they are mushed up.
