    Not at all. I'd call it 'purple sunset.'

    I found I was noticing the oversaturated color more than the picture and the scenery.

    A bit far for my taste, but great composition- as always.

    Very helpful. Thanks for your contribution to the thread. Bless your heart.

    Yeah it is a bit much but hey... Realism is over rated!

    Yeah, a we bit too far for me too. I think there's a bit too much contrast and you've lost some of the semi opaque luminocity in the sky. How did you edit it?

    I've been using luminocity masking in photoshop recently and I think that if you split this into two layers you could get a better result. I've also been colour grading with the calibration and hue panel in lightroom.

    You may've taken it a bit "too far", depending on what you were shooting for or who you were trying to please but I've seen so many pictures presented on here that went too far but received praise. This confuses me. I bring this thought with me every time I come in here. I personally think it looks good if you like a picture that leans a little toward fantasy and I do but the purist in me screams out. It's an eternal, internal battle I struggle with.
