1 although it looks a bit wonky. I don't like how the black land in the foreground crosses the horizon on the other two which unbalanced the shot.

I like the first one because the hill to the right is absent. The earlier photos with color made the hill interesting but when a dark mass it looses my interest and becomes more of a distraction. I think the 1st shot framing coupled with the slightly earlier 2nd shot sunset lighting would be amazing.

#3 is my favorite after the right side is cropped where the horizon meets the hill just to the right of that nice orange spot. The sky in whats left is nice and varied. The part deleleted has nothing of particular interest so no loss.

Interesting.....I spent most of my "focus" on trying to get the silhouetting into the frame, to give more elements, when it appears that most would rather not have a competing influence in the frame. Thanks guys, you really helped me to see things a lil' different.

Here is one shot that might address some preference, tho the color red had already just about diminished at this point. The brightest red came more to the north (viewers right) which, brought the bluff into the frame too.

Most of the time a sunset is a horizontal image. Thats why I like 3. Its nice and wide. Here is the crop and some exposure change.
