These two shots are interesting. Of particular note is the layering of color. Three distinct colors are visible around the sun. I don't think this is natural. It is a result of using a color palette with too few colors. I don't know if the camera has the option to change the color depth but editing software certainly does.

Tell us more about how you post processed these images that caused a separation of colors rather than a smooth blending.

Nice shots but one strangelooking sky, Jeff (as Cal noted). The area around the sun on both images looks weird. The sun looks more like a meteor falling on Earth. I'm curious to know what caused the effect as well.

This image has no PP other than resizing. The coloring around the sun is natural. I took 5 shots of the boat going thru the sunset and sun looks the same in all 5 shots. Perhaps the cloud in front of the sun had something to do with it.

I also thought the fuzziness around the sun was a bit odd. Now that you mention te possible effect of a cloud it makes sense.
