The second one of the sunset is the most attractive of the three, but none of them is really very good.
The first one is somewhat flat, with overexaggerated cracks in the earth,
The second one has horrid shadow values (although a beautiful sky!),
The third one has poor backlighting, and a too bright ground.

Two of your biggest issues (to my eye, at least) are consistency, and proper value levels.

Your shadows are sloppy and all over the place, not carefully positioned, and not consistent with your vague and poorly defined light sources. What the hell is causing the shadows on the front of the house, when the sun is setting behind the house, and there is nothing in front for light to reflect/refract upon?

You need to think more about what you are creating, and put more effort into your details. Poor lighting effects on top of poor rendering is a waste of your time, because you just compound the visual discrepancies, as these three pieces show all too well.

You statei tryed to work out some lighting in different lighing situations, as study for actual knowhow of light and mood and composition How, exactly, did you "work out" these lighting scenarios? What guidelines, or references, did you use to determine each one? And how do you expect these three works to provide you with "actual knowhow of light and mood and composition?"

I'm curious, because these do not show much in the way of consideration or technique, so I do not understand how you think them helpful. Please clarify.
