I guess this is your 'Blue' phase.
I like the composition and lines in No.2.

Nicely done Walad. You've handled the light and exposure rather well with the GND's. Nice compositions too.
The colours look a little over-satrurated to me but I guess that's a matter of personal taste. Also you might like to check whether the horizons are level. #3 in particular looks a little out to me.

Because your thread was titled Sunset I nearly ignored it because I have seen so many. I am glad I decided to take a look - very well done images - It may have been better to title the thread twilight or dusk which probably would be more accurate and as you obviously know is a great time to take photographs. As Dave above mentioned the saturation is just a little too strong for my personal preference.

Thanks guys. Glad you like it - I respect whichever your preference are and your valuable comments, I will definitely accept it with open heart and will take that as a guide for sure. Also will try to remember this for my next shooting.
@Dave: Thks for your comments especially on the saturation. With regard to horizon, you are right! thks for alerting me too. I will fix-up the leveler next time. hehehe..Bad eyesight as getting old everyday.
@Paul: Thanks for your suggestion. You are right! I should have made it more attractive. Glad you finally decided to take a look at my thread. I agree, the saturation is a little overdone.
BTW, I would like to take this opportunity to wish everyone a Happy New Year. May 2013 bring you lots of opportunity, prosperity and happiness.
