It all depends on what you want to do with it. But for starters level out the horizon. Put a horizontal guide at the middle of the horizon an rotate the image in small steps counter clockwise till it matches the guide.

Anyone know if the auto rotate measurement tool works in CS3?

More of a compositional thing, but I think horizons look a bit better if they're spit 1/3 water/foreground and 2/3 background rather than half and half. As far as CS3 goes, you could play with the saturation a bit, but like Anderson said, it all depends on what you want to do.

thanks for your fast replies! i just thought it was a pretty cool picture and didnt know if there was something i could do in curves or with sharpness or contrast or anything like that. also when i use liquify on my 2.4 mbp with a picture taken from my 8 mp sony dsc-h9 there is a delay to the point where i cannot use it "neatly", is that normal or is that a hardware or software probelm? thanks!
