Here’s mine – thanks for sharing!
@nosle: Nicely done.
@agriggio: That perspective change is rather nice! I assume this is an ART edit.

Experimenting with some out-of-the-comfort-zone color grading.
Thank you for the prompt and the nice image.

I couldn’t resist and I made a second one with inverted colors and a different color grading.

Everything very restrained here. A little more pizzazz …

Reminds me of the solarization experiments I did back when I had my own darkroom. Those where B&W, but I imagined the colour version to look a bit like the one you just created. The split that the diagonal line creates due to the dark/light is rather interesting.
I’ll have to keep this in mind when I ever need to create a silver or gold glow on something.
Another red and green version.

And an even grungier pinkish-red, partially inverted and faded:

Exactly same workflow as my take Sunset on Brusvikken - Darktable filmic vs sigmoid - #57 by afre. Maybe different colour space on PF export…?
Second one in particular looks like expired film, nice work.
Trying out my new aerochrome film stock

@arctic : Both are nice, but I think I prefer the first one. Both are nice examples that show that adding “grain” (digital noise) can make a positive difference.
@afre : That is a remarkable difference between end results if the workflow was identical. I initially missed your second Sunset on … edit, which is really nice and soft by the way and the above result doesn’t come close to that. Interesting…
@Soupy : Artistic complementary (or the RYB model) works well here doesn’t it?
I saw something in the original that I also wanted to explore but did not in my first edit. Inspired by all the other edits I decided to give that idea a go.
RawTherapee + Krita
Depends on the stats of the image. It is simply a bunch of curves, denoising, blending and sharpening. With a few more steps:

Love the picture. This screamed out to me for this anamorphic lens flare but I could not create it. Has anyone a good tutorial how to create anamorphic lens flare with GIMP or similar?
Is this what you are looking for? I can teach you how in RawTherapee Dev.

Yes, this is the effect. It is basically a bloom effect but only in 1 direction. How do you do this? However, I do not have RawTherapee DEV .
You can download the nightly from here, but hopefully within a month or two there will be a full release of version 5.9. I have been watching the conversations amongst the developers, and they seem to be nearing the establishment of a release date
In order to create the effect, I used Local Adjustments. As a primer for using LA, you should watch @Andy_Astbury1 's video. The interface is a bit hard to wrap your head around, but once it clicks its pretty straightforward.
I will try to work on a separate tutorial for lens flare and post back here, as I don’t want to highjack this thread.
Edit: The tutorial can be found here Tutorial: Using Local Adjustments to create lens flare
