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.

Thank you! Most of the time, all I end up doing is increasing contrast and saturation with the help of Capture One for Raw editing and then in Photoshop I use Nik Software mostly again for contrast / saturation. I stay away from replacing colour etc - basically I just intensify the scene :)

Sometimes I also exposure blend (+/- 1-2 stops) if required to control the shadows and highlights.
