I like the idea of the setting sun not being central

Very subtle and not OTT which makes a highly relaxing image Susie.
Shame that on the large version (which is gorgeous) the sharpening(?) has caused such a distinct line along the top of the hills. You could blur it out I suppose but you can easily see past that and appreciate the beautiful scene.
Fine shot Susie.

very muted and silvery tones for a sunset Susie - but it has a very distinct appeal to it

Lovely calm, subtle, understated image in the smaller shot but the horizon halo on the large version spoils it a bit.

Whatever you have done to that sky is fantastic, well done.
A little advice on the sharpening and halos that people have mentioned. What looks right in photoshop and the like, and even in print, is messed up slightly when it goes through servers on most websites. It's not your fault, it's theirs. Something about the way it's compressed. It's best to only upload unsharpened pics to compensate this.
Give it a go anyway, it can't hurt.

This is where you need a very strong ND grad filter, or perhaps two. Here, I'd use a ND grad 0.9 + a 0.3 together, where the bottom of the darker section would be right where the water's horizon is. Then the foreground would have more details.

Also, I spend a lot of time in PhotoShop. I work on each part seperately. I will select each part and adjust the brightness and sharpness accordingly. I am very careful about sharpening edges and the sky. I rarely sharpen the sky. I spend about 30 minutes to 1 hour on each one.

And I shoot in RAW format. It is easier to get details out of the shadows in RAW.

Appreciate you taking the time to provide such thoughtful advice, Patrick ... thanks so much!
