try to HDR such a shot next time. too dark to tell details in the foreground. though the sunset color can be seen. but hdr would create a better effect i think

Can you share what is the time you took this shot? Try shooting earlier so that your skyline still has some light and boost the saturation of the sky later in PS.

Else, heard that the best time to take evening shots in singapore is between 7.18pm - 7.22pm ;)

what's HDR? sorry, i'm a noob, still not familiar with all the terms.

i took it at 7:21pm.

will using any filters help with the exposure of the foreground?

Filters wont help in this case since your foreground is already too dark. prolonging your exposure or post processing in PS will help

best time for sunset/sunrise are normally about 1hr before and after... apply worldwide iirc. but its always good to go earlier as there might be surprise.
