Taking sunset pictures

For the last year and going into 2015 in trying to set myself some photography goals and projects. One of these is getting great pictures at sunset.  So on a clear evening I took my Canon 70D out to Coaley Peak in Gloucestershire and shot away.

I did play with the settings but in the end found that leaving it in Auto produced the best results for me.  It's challenging to get the right balance and I know I should be in manual mode but who says.  For me a satisfying picture is a satisfying picture, no matter what mode you are in.
