This picture, like all of your other work, is very well executed. The texture is quite smooth, and the waves in the background and the sea lions on the rocks all have excellent contrast, almost a mild chiaroscuro effect.
The way you captured the rocks against the water, and the slightly lower angle, provide a slightly disorienting aspect to the picture. Though it does make for a rather interesting effect: that the sea lions are above you. And the focus is spectacular, considering the amount of zoom that is present in this photo. I can see every aspect of the sea lions' whiskers!
There are, however, two (admittedly minor) flaws in this picture. One may be purely my opinion: the background seems much too saturated. Did you, in fact capture it like that, or was that a post-processing side effect? It just doesn't seem like the right background to me. The other flaw is the highly noticeable speckling on the lens, which is more often than not a mistake that can be avoided, or at least corrected in Photoshop or wherever you do your post work.
However, the highly striking poses of the sea lions is what gives this photo the eye-catching quality. You have taken an excellent photo, and with a little bit of processing, it will be perfect.
What do you think?
