Beautiful moments - not so great capture

There is a lot to be done with this raw: wrong exposure, spots to be retouched and it needs some color. However, that moonrise was an unforgettable moment, golden hour. Hope some of you can make it look as beautiful as I remember it

(btw, is there anyway to eliminate these high voltage wires in darktable?)

OK that’s what I call a task…

My first try with darktable and GIMP (including GMIC):

My try. I would leave the power lines. They add character to the image.

Extreme photos need extreme treatments. In this case, a lot of colour.
