A rather beautiful lowlight photograph depicting the sun saying goodnight to Victoria, so wonderfully filled with natural colours and great detail.

In your first upload, "Afternoon", you had a large tree silhouette in your sunset, and that sort of focal point is missing in this one, Rio. The little bush on the left horizon isn't significant enough to give a strong point of interest, and is also obscured by having a dark cloud behind it. The sunset clouds are pleasant enough, but don't serve to hold the viewer's interest on their own.
Compositionally, your balance of land vs. sky is just about right. The colours are nice and natural, too.
By excluding the sun, your exposure looks fine.
When you next see an interesting sky, look around for something that you can use to add to your frame. At this time of day, it will come out as a silhouette, so the shape needs to be interesting. Then offset it in your frame, as you did in "Afternoon", don't place it in the centre.
A lot of people would use an image like this as a stock photo, one they would keep on file and use it as a replacement background, or simply add an interesting silhouette, as I have suggested above.
Pamela.

Lovely image of the sky, and that's about it, I'm afraid. It needs a subject. Alternatively, you could shoot wider or make a panoramic of the sky. There's so much here that is just out of frame - I want to see more of the clouds, left, and a big sweep of sky can look stunning in this light.
I would aim higher too, as the land only serves to anchor this shot but contributes nothing pictorially, so doesn't need to intrude so far into he image.
