I am assuming that this photo is meant to to be impressionist in style. I am not sure if the soft focus was accidental or deliberate, but for me it detracts from the overall image. The softness of the colors gives a nice watercolor effect, but there is no real focal point so the eye has a hard time figuring out where to go. The horizon neatly bisects the frame, which is nice and symmetrical but does not add much interest. I do like the overall dreamy mood, but find myself finished with this photo after a very short time. The photo would be much stronger with the horizon in a different position, and with a focal point of some type.
