A couple of things;
To effectively process an image with this much dynamic range (brightest to darkest parts light ratio), you are going to have to shoot RAW and post process - an in-camera jpg (even "fine") isn't going to be able to cope. The shadow side of the hulls are a bit too dark really.
A small thing, but the horizon isn't level, PP software can correct that, but again, with jpg original, some sharpness may go in the process.

Thank you Dave for educating me.

Considering the conditions, Ajith, I think this has worked reasonably well.
I'm not quite sure if adding just a tiny bit more space to the top of the scene would help. To me, the 'skyline' seems a little 'cramped'. Alternatively, cropping to just remove the horizon might be worth trying.
The horizon is probably a little slanting but I think it is partially an optical effect.
