Pretty close. I would have framed it slightly further to the left, so the bow of the leading cruise-liner didn't get cut off. And I would have aimed higher, cutting off most of the piling in the foreground, also bringing more sky in. Really nice colors!

I'm guessing you weren't at the 18mm setting here..? A touch more width would have helped- also a touch over exposed. When shooting white hulled boats/ships I always dial in a bit of negative exposure compensation...

agree with KC and Simon. It's a nice shot.

Re: Composition, there doesn't seem to be a primary focal point of interest. The small boats in the foreground are the same colors and textures as the big cruise ship (ships?) If the point is to contrast the small boats with the big one(s), I think I'd crop out the second, farther cruise ship and may have taken the picture 10 feet to the left (to get parallelism between the bows of the ships. If the purpose is just to shoot the cruise ship, I would have tried to keep the smaller stuff out of the frame so you just have the crisp white of the ship and the blue of the ocean and sky.

I do quite like the comp on this shot.

Maybe a lower angle to bring the wharf line leading into the left bottom corner of the frame and it might create a cool sense of scale between the closer smaller boats and the big one.
