the composition is fine but the overall feel is a little overcooked in the processing.
it looks to me as if the balance between the top and bottm halves required a grad filter around 2 stops to restore the correct relationship.

taking an average reading i guess has blocked up the shadows some which has been lifted in processing and then the saturation boosted just a bit too much.

so left with what we have now the suns gone down, i would suggest loading into photoshop or similar and the saturation lowering to a comfortable colour tone in the water and i suspect that will also assist losing the colour caste in the boats.

then on separate layer, eye drop the sky tone from the top left of frame and drop a grad of that colour from the top to fill in the overbright area top right. this can be blended to taste with the opacity slider before flattening the layers.

its still in there and just needs teasing out slightly differently.
