agree  Jack Doughty: The only way you could view half an ocean would be from the International Space Station.

  -> Ty Jack. I think they are just trying to emphasise it's not a small blue trainge inbetween the tower blocks in the foreground ;)

neutral  Yvonne Gallagher: don't agree with Jack. You'd only see half an ocean from a corner room window.//It might be "partially -obscured" but impossible to know without more context

agree  Tony M: It's a way of saying 'pretty much half of the window-space shows you ocean' — as distinct from merely 'ocean glimpses' (between the chimneys of the glue factory...); this is typically used by estate agents.
