I've edited a photo. How is it? How would you do it?

Hi guys

Photography has always interested and I've started looking into photo editing. 

I've downloaded the Snapseed and have just been getting used to the features. 

This is from amongst my first efforts at photo editing, and I want your guys opinion. The original was dark and I wanted to bring it to life. Does it look any good, or have I overdone it? How would you have done it?

Feel free to use the photo and upload your own edited version for comparison. Looking forward to your replies!

G'day ibby

For anyone here to really assist, we would need the original rather than your amended image. Maybe you could post it soon

As to this edited image - yes it looks okay as a starter but it does appear a bit too blue, with the specular highlights also being too blue

Photographically I like the mountain range on the horizon and the placement of the small boat - you do have the makings of a beaut photo. ps- if it were mine, I would also crop it so that the horizon was now in the middle of the image - so that it would now become a beaut pano-style pic

Hope this helps
