I no longer critique or share composition ideas here, but I will provide an edit of your image for you to use as a guide while editing the original. A downsized, compressed image is difficult to work with so the results are a bit crude. There are lots of jaggies here...Hopefully from sizing and compression for web display.

Cropped slightly from bottom.
Created pure black and white points.
Improved clarity by improving exposure.
Gave image a blue tint.

Good luck!

I like this photo. The only suggestion I have would be to try for more contrast to bring out the masts and lines better.
