Do I love this - the combination of silhouettes and boat sails....surf and sea. Magical. Just one tiny point - is the horizon level or is it me? If it's me I apologise !! :-)

@Nigel: Nigel, Can you come back and take another look - I just tweaked it a bit - in an attempt to straighten - I'm curious if I'm still off. Thanks!
