Sunset has its own melancholy magic .. be it anywhere in the world. Being a public health specialist my postings are essentially in rural setups. Presently I am posted in a small place called Chandipur, which falls under the Uluberia Sub-division in the Howrah district of WestBengal, India.
The Damodar river flows lazily by Chandipur. This shot was taken from a smashan or burning ghat (a hindu cremetory ground) by the banks of the river in the sundown hours after completing my day's work in office.

Its the reflected sun in the water which makes this attractive! Good contrast with the cloudy sky 7 the reflection. I wish you had something to make a strong focal point, but as it is, its a nice shot!
PS : Awaiting your second shot of the two kids jumping!

you captured the sunset nicely. The light is perfect. Like the colours in sky and in water. Angshu is right. Some another focal point if positioned in FG made it superb. Anyway it is also a fine composition. Tfs.
