I'd correct the lens distortion.

uhm... I like it, is very well taken, and it has the dramatic feeling of the distortion. however it would be nice to compare the image with a corrected distortion

I don't notice any distortion; but the scene looks too flat to me. I think a boost in sat/contrast will improve it. Here is a take on it - please ignore the sloppy selection of the sky, this is just for example.

I like the distortion!

Here is a quick edit widening the right hand side to give it more symmetry.

How would do that?

You were there...is that really how the scene appeared?

uhm... I like it, is very well taken, and it has the dramatic feeling of the distortion. however it would be nice to compare the image with a corrected distortion

Nicely done Qbx.. I think I would of also cloned out all peope and objests along the shoreline in forground from right to left.

I don't think the bright area in the sky adds to the shot, I'd make it uniform blue, or paste in some interesting clouds. If you had some rays coming down it would look cool too.
