My favorite part of this scene is the silhouetted tanker on the horizon. I almost missed it however, because you made the fiery sky into the star of the show.

Good strong colours, not sure if I like the rocks in front, distracts a little from the ship. Somewhere off the Cape, South Africa? Eish.

A lil more crop to have the boat actually leaving the frame would have been better but a beautiful photo! Love the bright orange sky.
