Image doctor's advice
I think this is a lovely sunrise and I think it would be even more enjoyable for anyone who owns a boat in the marina. The first thing that it suggests to me is that we are in for a great days sailing.
Now, while most yachties might prefer seeing the horizon on an angle, photographers should try and get the horizon level whenever possible – either in the camera or in post-production.
There is no shortage of photo-editing software (free and otherwise) that will allow you to crop and straighten photos and, in doing so you really show that you care about your work.
Everything else about this photo, from the exposure to the moment is very good.
