Please don't post the same images twice in two different sections - I know you want to get comments, but it just confuses things.

In terms of this image, I think you are seriously in need of some reference material - have a look at what mountains ACTUALLY do when the sun is behind them, not what you THINK they might do...

A backlit mountain range looks something like this:

Note that this image has already been heavily post-processed, and is on the border of looking 'real', but it will give you some pointers for how to work with haze, sunsets and silhouetted mountains.

Hope that helps
