    That's a nice sunset. All that black foreground doesn't seem to really add to the image. Were you to crop most of the foreground away and make it more of a panoramic, it would really open the image up and increase the drama and scope.

    Heya, NewMexicoOutdoor, welcome to ThePhotoForum :D !!!

    Sunsets ... always again nice, as - even with 325 to be seen during the year where you are - none of them are ever the very same as the ones before!

    Here I feel you divided your photo into two equal halves, which in itself makes images of all kinds a little "blah" to look at, you want a division in thirds, our eyes and aesthetic feelings simply prefer that, so I'd also go with what KmH says: crop some of that all black at the bottom, shift the horizon to the lower third, and you're there. A bit of unsharpening mask (USM) - which will SHARPEN your photo some - might come in handy here, too.

    Thanks! Good suggestions! Reducing the black area is universally suggested! Dan
