Saying Good-by, A beautiful Sunset by S'anna

Have you ever noticed how everything turns that reddish tone right as the sun has dropped below the horizon?  I decided to explore just that this time in the painting below.  When I first set it in, everything was so monotone...RED.  

wasn't happy with yesterday's results so I set to work on it this morning.  I think it looks a lot better in this finished form.  I love the use of contrast on a painting and usually I use extreme color contrast to achieve what I want. But for this painting, I wanted the contrast to be more subtle, so I incorporated a little yellow and some clean pink. I like the final results, but would love to hear what you think.

Beautiful painting of that moment when the sun has dropped below the horizon and everything is pink.
