A good try for a first attempt. Here are some of my observations: What I like: the moment is right, the sunset is nice with everything basking in orange color. The mist at the horizon and the passing boat had added to the pic. What I dislike: the pic seems slightly out of focus, and the dark patch (of land?) on the lower right is distracting. I also feel that there are too much sea at the foreground, and putting the horizon at the bottom 3rd to capture more of the sky would probably make a better pic.
