Sunsets are notoriously hard to get good however here you have the makings of a good one.

There are a couple of things you can do to make it much better.

1. Straighten the horizon, this is essential on all landscape shots and especially anything with the sea as it is very obvious.

2. Increase the brightness slightly and the contact quite a bit as although what you have is nice and I like the colours everything is a little flat.

3. Apply some unsharp mask as this helps give definition to the silhouettes etc.

Looking forward to seeing number 3 and here is my quick edit taking those points into consideration.

Oh just remembered there was some dirt or something on the left side of the shot which I also removed.
