Wonderful sunset colours Ray. Like the strong compositional placement of the Cacti.
Make your life spectacular!

Sweet looking sky!
Got some "glow" going on around those saguaros..and again some pesky really light areas on the horizon. I suspect leftovers from darkening the sky.
Some slight adjustments to those areas would really perk this up.

A bit of a shadow recovery halo around each of the cacti as well as the mountains in the distance and a bit heavily saturated. This one has a lot of potential with some revised processing as the composition and, of course, the sky is excellent.

Hot looking sky! Agree with other assessments, but still, a striking shot!
