Sunrise from Park Royal Penang

I was at Park Royal Penang during the weekend for my company team building event. Wake up at 6:30am to get ready for sunrise. Waited from 6:50am shooting till 7:30am. I don't think the sunrise was very nice but, I am just learning to take photos. Actual photo does have a lot of dust which I am not sure why it was there, I used photoshop to clean up the dust.

Hope sifu sifu can give pointer.

first of all, i edited your post to fix the photo format.
you need to make the photo inline.
very eassy to do. just click again on the paper clip icon after you uploaded the image into server, and click the files.
you will see ATTACH taglines.

secondly, it is very important when shooting landscape, u need to make sure the horizon is in straight line. in your photo right now, it is slanted.

thirdly, the dust may come from your sensor. you need to clean the sensor by sending it to service center.

It's quite a bit underexposed and the horizon is very tilted.

If you don't mind - I think it is a nice picture, but can look better.

funny thing is that photos before and after the "sunrise" shot does not have the dust. I am very confused. I need to go Click & Snap and check with them.

The dust was visible because you shot the sunrise at f/22.

Yah you don't need spirit level, there is grid lines in your viewfinder, use those If you don't have I'm sure you can turn it on. If it's not exact just use the measure tool and straighten it in PS.
