Use to work in the Middle East and know how difficult it is to get a good Sunset, I am assuming it is the build up of dust during the day so use to do where possible take photos in the early mornings when you have a window between 6.00 - 9.00am before the light goes and the heat comes.
And this is the problem with your photo, nicely exposed Sun, but the rest of the photo is flat, (After saying above hope this was not taken during the morning)

I like this. The conditions have enabled you to balance a bright sun with a semi silhouetted foreground. Looks prettu good to me.
