Can I call this a Landscape Photo?

I have taken this picture a week ago with my iPhone 6. Wonder why I shoot with an iPhone? cause it's the only camera I own. Let's come to he point. Can I call this a landscape shot? The reason why I am asking is, there is not much of land in it and most of the picture has boats which are artificial not natural. Please explain this to me. Also please rate the picture that is how I am able to know if I'm on the right way or not.

I might be mistaken myself, but perhaps this could be classified as Street Photography?

but that's nowhere near to streets or village. thanks for the comment.

Just following what others are saying here, don't worry to much about the genre that it would belong in; it's a good photograph; love the tones and subject.

Thank you so much :)

Probably nautical photography. Three objects together can form a powerful and interesting composition.

I bet you wish you could have rearranged those boats!

Any other place and I would not look at it twice. Try rating your work against some basic objective standards. You are new to the game and I can tell you there is a strong bias for liking our own work.

Personally, I wouldn't. Is there any land in it? It's that simple. Perhaps you could call it a seascape, but I still wouldn't call it that.
Some photos just don't fit in a major category.

This photo fits in the category of Nautical Photography.

Not a landscape. You can classify this as travel photography. It doesn't matter if you live there - travel photography can denote the sights, sounds, and pulse of a particular place.

Thanks. I had the same doubt that, "can I call it travel photography when I am actually not travelling?". Thanks for the answer.
