from a strictly compositional aspect you have done a good job, as its obvious that the foreground of the rocks offer far more to look at than the sky. You have done an admirable job to get the level of detail you have.

now as far as the sky is concerned sure it a pretty colour and all but with the plethora of sunset shots on this and many other photo sights it doesn't really stand up and say "hey look at me"

the note I left is a suggestion for framing this shot whereby you still get a hint of the sunset with its wonderful hues but none of the actually sky itself.

I feel as though that at sometime during this sunset you could have easily achieved a more punchy shot by shooting earlier or later than this shot, hell even taking a shot every minute or two from when the sky started to colour up till darkness (assuming of course you have the time and patience)

EDIT..( see timing is everything )

so its a nice shot maybe not postcard perfect as stated by KM-7D
but still has merit.
with a bit more patience and perhaps planning this could easily be a great shot.

thanks for sharing it.

Initial Impact: Great colors and an interesting sunset composition with an even more interesting foreground.

Composition : As noted by mrnarna the foreground is more interesting than the sunset itself, and somehow the two together at the time the picture was taken are not working well together. Perhaps the silhouette of the mountains isn’t sharp enough or big enough to balance the rocks in the foreground. The eye is drawn to the point of highest contrast, the bright sky behind the mountains, which does not appear to be sharp.

Technical : You good detail and sharp focus on the foreground rocks but in the process background mountains don’t appear sharp.

Overall Rating A pretty good photo.

TOTALLY go with the crop suggestion, I think it will do this great photo more justice. The sky is definitely very nice, but contrasted with the rocks and water it feels more weak than anything else.

The crop suggested would really take this already very good photo, into the next level of greatness. The details on the rocks, the colors, the emotion, it just oozes that feeling of "I wish I were there". As said before I think the horizon is really nice, but it takes away from the most powerful part of the photo. The bottom part. Keep that as the main focus area and I think this is a true winner in every regard.

A beautiful, colourful shot! Good composition!

i agree with the crop. the foreground element has a busy-ness, a certain degree of congestedness, while the background could be that of a totally different shot, a scape of stillness.
