I like it, the soft colors and the low sun give a very relaxing, end of the day, image.

That is beautiful! What exactly was your rework? Is it very different from earlier editions you made?

The water and rocks are very effective.  I think you could cut out some of the single colored sky above the yellow.  Keep just a little of the sky above the top of the clouds on the right.  Any sky that is not really interesting, I tend to crop out of my images. It is the foreground that I really like the  most in your image here.  There is no need for us to look too long at a single colored sky when we could be looking at more interesting rocks and waves.  You must have been glad to be there with your camera!

Don't remember the original, but this is well done.

I disagree. There's interest in the whole sky; and cropping off the top would unbalance the composition. It's a fine shot as it is and I'd leave it alone.

Same here. Even if you think of it as 'dead space' around the focal points of the composition, if it was not there the focal points wouldn't have as much impact.
I'm yet to get a sunrise/set that I'm proud of, but this is great. What sort of shutter speed were you shooting at to get the water like that?

The foreground version is a nice composition too. Like the colours and mood of the first one though.
