Hi all this is my first attempt at a seascape capture.:)
Any helpful pointers would be great as i have just started taking a interest in sea and landscapes.

For a first attempt, it's pretty. But, it's more of a 'cloudscape' since that seems to be the focus of the picture. Generally, a photo can be improved by having a clear subject, and having the composition lead the viewer through the picture to the subject.

I agree, it's a nice shot but there isn't anything to hold the interest, I am squinting to see the boats and beyond.

Having grown up around Langstone harbour/backwaters of Portsmouth, although it can be quite a spartan landscape, there is just such a lot of stuff ! in and around the water's edge that I am now (shooting seascapes over here a lot) jealous of!

Mud! breakwaters, groynes, rotting wooden stuff in the mud(!), concrete/stone structures, jetties, bridges, boats, ships, bikes, trolleys, birds, garbage, bait-gatherers, meandering channels in the mud(!), seaweed mounds etc. etc.

I'd consider trying to use something like that to help frame things and provide a subject to counter the sea/views beyond - dawn/dusk light is a huge help too if you can manage it, with the shadows/magical light. have fun, it's a great excuse to be around the water whatever happens!

When it lacks a subject it becomes a bit more abstract. The lines, colors, contrast and shapes become the alternate subject. Nice shot.
