I like the colors! Try taking your next sunset with the horizon line lower in the frame to show
more of the sky and less of the black foreground

If you're not bothering with a neutral density filter, and there are no interesting silhouettes (and there aren't), you should consider foregoing the black foreground and include more of the sky into the frame.

The colours are beautiful.

I agree with the others about the foreground. Next time you can try placing the foreground much lower, and you could also try using a longer focal length to make the trees off in the distance a bit more pronounced.
