Gracias for your attention

At the end of a presentation or a speech to a group of people, where I wanted to thank the audience for listening, would one say

Gracias por su atención
or
Gracias por sus atenciones?


Gracias de antemano por su ayuda.

¡Gracias por su atención! --->atención (uncountable) ---> the same attention as in "pay attention" (heed) ---> (ellos) le prestaron atención

¡Gracias por sus atenciones! ---> atención (countable) ---> gifts, compliance, courtesy ---> (ellos) lo colmaron de atenciones
