Firstly the sharpnes. You cant really see the edges of any object in this picture.
Secondly the noise. Ammount of digital noise "kills" that picture.
Colors. Instead of capturing a nice sunset, these colors (due to the bad camera settings) are making the whole picture hard to look at
And lastly the composition of this picture is just bad. Not mentioning the basics - picture is not centered, you can see a small piece of a tree in the bottom corner.
I am surprised that this shoot got through the screeners!
