You have captured some nice golour and have a good sky with character.
There's nothing on the horizon that stands out, but that doesn't matter so much (a nice silhouette against such a sky is nice to see) but given you've managed to get a good reflection of that colourful sky, the image is lacking in any strong foreground interest to add interest and anchor the image. A low viewpoint is one possibility. Of course, such interest can be added from another image if necessary. So while this is pleasing, there are things to look out for to make the most of a scene such as this.

Very attractive image Mary, - lovely warm looking sunrise, though Im sure it wasnt actually warm there.

There are some areas in the foreground that could be tidied up a little with some cloning to give a cleaner look, and remove distractions.
Theres also some hidden detail in some boats that can be revealed using levels or curves.

Ive done this is a mod, with a little cropped off the right, and the colour balance and saturation altered very slightly.

I hope you find this useful,

MANY thanks for your helpful critiques and modifications - very gratefully received as I'm keen to learn - Robert, could you tell me how you "pulled back a little more detail in the sky" - I just have Photoshop Elements 5 where I can do a limited amount of editing - on WB, Sharpness, Contrast, Colour Saturation, Tone and Space. Thanks to 'krimage', Willie and Robert for taking the time and trouble to comment and offer improvements.

MLG this was done using topaz adjust plugin on photoshop cs3.
Not sure if this works of elements 5 but you can contact their support at or download the 30 day trial and see if it works....
