I just spent two weeks up in Maine, where there are loads of cormorants. I wonder if they one's you get a smaller than we have here? That second one looks smaller (but maybe it's scrunched up?) We get Greater and double crested.

Very nice sunset colors on the first one. If you can (and maybe you can't) a better picture is if you can be above the sitting cormorant and then offset frame them with the sunset. Then you get the great colors and wide expanse of the sunset with the cormorant in the forground for context. Of course, that shot is:
1) a different feel. Its clearly not the same shot as this one. And maybe not what you wanted.
2) maybe not possible. For all I know, there were oil tankers on either side of this shot!
3) Very traditional. People take it for a reason (at least to me, I think they are nice) but those shots are not original.

The first shot was BLAH, had a boring white sky background, I was not in a position to get in a different shot. I put the sunset in myself with photoshop:-)Just wanted to see if it would pass as a sunset.
