My pleasure! Most people - me included - make their edits on the full-size version of the image. Then they resize.
If we were strictly taking and editing images for online viewing, we'd resize first, then do the edits.
In my own images, I have seen how this approach sometimes doesn't offer the best possible results for posted pictures. Textures can sometimes look odd, color gradations lose some of their subtlety and appears too "banded" and sharpening and mid-tone contrasts sometimes comes across a little too "harsh" as if the images has been over sharpened.
On my monitor with my eyes, if the the water at the bottom looks a little too "nervous" or too "busy" (I'm searching for the words here as you can tell..lol), I imagine that it has something to do with the image (probably) not specifically edited for sub 1MP size showing.
To really appreciate an image, a large-ish print is required (in my opinion). Some aspects of images that looks a little too something, may well turn out very well in a good-sized print from a file that hasn't been re-sized for online viewing after the edits are complete.
If the bottom looks a little too "chromatic", I think it may have to do with that. But I could be wrong.
