Hello, Anthony. I see that you have some splendid sunsets in your portfolio. In this one, I like the lines of the waves and wooden structure, but can't help feeling that with a little movement up or down, you'd have avoided hiding one of the waves behind the wood. However, the silhouettes are strong and the structure has nice deep shadows in the foreground. You held the exposure well, considering the sun hasn't fallen beyond the horizon. There are attractive gold reflections in the sand and water. I feel there is a lot of bland sky at the top, and your horizon is wonky, so in my modification I cropped the image, straightened the horizon (the line of the left part of the structure is now straight as well), lightened the image to better reveal the structure against the water, then just added a touch of contrast. All minor tweaks to an otherwise attractive image. My second mod was in my mind during editing, just a mirrored version, because it feels better that way, to me.
