    #2 is best

    #1 the blow out sun ruins it

    #3 is blown out too and the lens flare needs to be removed

    #2 could be made to look much better if you can adjust the darks a bit and then maybe boost the contrast.

    #3 might be cool in B/W with some contrast. Or maybe see how sepia looks or just bump up the yellow channel.

    sunsets are shot best after the sun has already gone down. That's when you get the vibrant colors. These look too much like snapshots to me. Nothing too special.

    they are a bit flat, but I also like #2 the best. I think these were take at too low of an angle.

    And it's a bit weird that I say I like them because after growing up in the mojave desert (17 years), I really don't have much appreciation for it anymore. What parts were you in?
