With scenes such as this, one thing I usually do is create a "wide angle" by taking a series of photos from the most bottom angle to as high as I want to go then photostitch them in pp. It's an easy process and your photo includes so much more, completing the story.

With regard to #1, when looking through the viewfinder, I can understand that the sunrise would captivate and hold your eye but you need to look all around while holding your position to see if there is anything in the frame that should not be there, such as the guard rail, also watch your horizon line as in the last image. [Photo #3] Look at all possibilities like zooming in close on the reflection of the water and palm trees.

Nice place to be at!
