It was shot without polarizer and had quite some haze, typical in this hot and humid weather. Since I wear these self-darkening eyeglasses, the skies I see are a little darker, and the blue is much stronger. Here is the picture without the "added" blue:

I am trying to get a little more familiar with PSCS, so I played a little with it. Selected the sky, played a little with Levels, added a little blurr (not in the clouds, but the blue around), and sharpened only the sea and below (beach, watch tower, etc.). It's far from perfect, but I learned a little more.
I have a print (poster) of Casimir Malevitch's painting "paysage de la maison blanc" from 1932, which I like for it's vibrant colors. The photo I took turned out a little similar.
Thanks Bouloss, it's indeed the Mediterranean Sea. Your name sounds Greek?
Thanks TKO - the sand s.cks. I haven't given it attention, but should fix this. I wonder how I can get any detail in this - the sand here is VERY fine. I guess I have to start saving for a DX2 to get the extra detail.
