Fantastic series. I once did a slide show of sunset. It works quite well when the images move and gradually change over time. You should try it in PP program. Wonderful work.

Great idea and it worked really well
The rocks at the front seem to distract, but then thats just a tiny bit of preference
Keep them coming

Wow, very cool! Very attractive and strong image.
You could always do some selective down-exposure on the rocks at the front if you wish to.

Maybe; the other choice is to lift the rest of the foreground rocks a bit more. I'll experiment.
thanks!

This is very nice. I love how you captured a decent sunset and had the great idea to try some light painting (very successfully I might add)

Nice to see,

Beautiful shot. Well done.

And I, for one, think bringing up some more of the foreground would add to it very nicely. There is almost too much negative space.

I am not convinced that anything needs to change in this image. The image is well balanced and has an implied triangular shape to the elements. Quite apart from the magnificent afterglow of the sunset, you have managed to create mystique with the partly lit rocks, as if the sun broke through the clouds and gave you one last burst. I have seen this type of shot win awards, precisely because of the unique lighting, and of course the overall composition.
