First one, is awesome!
Second one the gamma needs to come down a bit IMO.
Third one is good, but ... did you modify it at all, is it really that pink?

Peace! 8)

Thank you for a quick reply! :)
The last picture is very purple, I agree. It is an old picture, taken in jpeg for some reason. I do have other pictures from the same place, approx. at the same time (last year), and they were just as purple. A bit more contrasty though. I do agree with you though, it is perhaps a tad too purple.
It often gets quite foggy out there, and that gives the sunsets a very intense color.


Here is a more recent picture from the same place, taken june this year. All I have done is to add some clarity, a bit of NR, and some sharpness. No Color correction, and this is pretty much similar to what it looked like in real life.

Another HDR one. A terrible lightning storm was going on behind me when I took this one,
so that I didn't dare get out of the car and took this out of the driver's side window.
