Another from my western ND travels, this one taken well after sunset. I was using a circa 1960's vintage telephoto, with an M42 to A-mount adapter. This evening, the colors really popped after the sun was completely down, just when I thought my photo ops had gone for the eve. Off in the distance, you can also faintly see some Oil rigs doing their thing.
Shot in RAW, highlights dropped, shadows boosted, vibrance and clarity boosted a bit. I also had to bring the blue luminance down a bit, as I did shoot this using cloudy WB. I'm sure some will say this is oversaturated but I honestly didn't touch saturation, except to tame the blues a bit.
Anyway, hope you enjoy it.

Well made and well managed to capture this light in the sky, nice colors with these warm tones, good contrast and interesting composition with this lonely tree.
