Extremely bright.
I would darken it a bit more, and give it some  more contrast.

The reflection should stretch all through the water, not just be a flip reflection underneath it. Because right now it looks as though the sun is going through some dirty glass or something.
And right now the whole piece is really messy, and should be cleaned up. I'm not particularly liking the random pixel-ness of the water either.

The newest update is way to saturated. lower the saturation and it will be more pleasing to the eyes. :blind:

I did a quick edit in paint to show how the reflection should be.  It shouldn't be so round it should be streached and uncircular. use this picture for refrence.

There's almost no depth to this. Everything sits on a single layer with each piece saying "Look at me! Look at me!" The water reflection should be bright, but not the same brightness as the sunset itself. Tone down the contrast on the points you don't want the viewer to focus on.

The Clouds have a screwy perspective. You've got these long clouds, near the top, vanishing towards the center, but then you have a bunch with a never ending vanishing point along the x-axis.

The sandy dirt doesn't resemble anything it's supposed to. It looks like a giant scribble and little else. No light source, no anything.
