A couple of comments and a tweak.

This is exactly where you wanted minus four, zero and plus one for your HDR spread. Combined, that would have gotten some needed cloud detail above the sun. The yellows show the telltale sludgey look of overly crushed hiighlights, and the blue sky is way too blue. All this is my particular taste, of couse. There's no denying the overbaked HDR look is popular, just look at the most viewed on 500Pix.

Literal old me would have LR'ed it this way:

LR 4

I don't think f25 was necessary. I would have gone for f8 and lower ISO, focused on the horizon.

Great comments thank you and i do like what you did to the photo.  I normally do keep it around f8 to f11 for sunsets, however i wanted to get that nice flare star from the sun so i took it further to 25.
