I think you did great to use a low ISO. As Billy says the picture leans a bit to the left so it needs straightening.
Colours are quite an issue with the laptop that I currently use, if I lean the screen backwards they look deeper, so I can not somment on colour, I have not got an idea how they look exactly. But I shall say this , if the look alright in your camera or your computer, there you are, you can be smiling proud.
I am o.k. with the people looking at the sunset, I think having them in the picture makes the image an invitation to share with them the beauty of the sight. If you want to have them in the frame, remember not to chop their heads as you have done now, allow the neck and shoulders to appear in your frame, make them a nice part of the picture, not an obstruction in viewing the sunset.
I shall advise you to have another go on it, the sun will still set nicely out of your porch and you can capture it again. Also, this time, take care, to include the whole of the leaves and the branches of the two trees, maybe by stepping a bit backwards?

Very attractive picture
Excellent sky and colours.
I suggest you take advice above into consideration and the next sunset you have a good sky try a number of shots, one tree, two trees but do not have them at edges. I think it would've be better without people and heads

One person standing looking at the sea can look good.
Try and include more sea.

Not a bad effort. The sky has pulled your attention and the lean must go. You should always correct sloping horizons. For once, I would prefer a wider view with more of the trees and foreground in the image to act as a frame, then that figure as Ian suggests to make a focal point. Sun is a little too bright.

Hi Billy,
Thanks for your comments. I definitely need to work on editing. I don't even have an editing programme right now ...

Hola Pablo,

Thanks for your advice! Next time I'll try with and without people, more or less sea, changing the position of the palm trees, etc.. several shots, good idea! I'll have to wait some months though, I am about 10.000 Km from that beach right now Sad ... "enjoying" the rain in Germany!

Saludos, Renée

Thanks Paul!

I guess I could correct the bright sun with an editing programme, right? I don't have one right now, which one would you suggest?
