I love street photography, I like to capture the people in their everyday life undirected,
i saw this man sitting alone by the bay. may be he's relaxing and enjoying the beauty of the sunset or may be he's thinking of something.

well spotted and really a good capture. but work with the horizon it is not level. you could also have cropped out some unwanted part of the image at the bottom. i have uploaded a modification. i have cropped the bottom of the image slightly and made level adjustment in every color Chanel and sharpened a bit.

the silhouette and the setting sun both are very close to each other you could have taken a different angle to separate them in a balanced manner (the setting sun could be slightly at the left side of the frame and the silhouette at the right).Although you have done a very good job.

best wishes,
somu

Potentially there was a good little image to be had here. Unfortunately your camera has been fooled by the direct light and has closed down the exposure.You will need to practice but you need to overexpose your initial image to a + EV setting to get a more realistic image.
The two previous mods like yourself have failed to separate the silhouette from the b/ground sky.
A quick way to improve this image in almost any software :-
Go Highlights/Shadows and lighten the shadows - darken highlights.
Brightness/Contrast - increase both.
It does also need the horizon distortion levelled.A little crop off of the bottom would be good too.
I have done a quick mod to hopefully give you some idea of what I mean.
