Sunset at a subway station

This is an old edit of a sunset at a newly built subway station:

…fairly ugly tones and burnt-out skies.

I redid it like this:

Which to my eye is much more pleasing and more like I remember the sunset - it was a fairly intense sunset, so I deem this to be in the saturated end of realistic.

Looking forward to your interpretations :slight_smile:

I really like the atmosphere and the graphic of this picture.
I tried to highlight it by playing on the contrasts and the brightness of the colours.
Here is my interpretation with DT 4.3 and the Sigmoid flow

Greetings from Brussels,


My version… With your permission, I have new wallpaper.

I really like how your edit preserves the contrast near the railroad tracks. To me they are an important part of the image, drawing the eye to the center.


Hahaha, I love it :smiley:
As long as its not commercial, you are free to do with it whatever you like.

Nice edit - it even looks good on my shitty office monitor.

Nice one!
Now that I see it, something between your edit and mine is probably the sweet spot for me.

Of course, it’s just to make my monitor look pretty. :stuck_out_tongue_winking_eye:

My take using DT 4.2 and trying technique to manage saturated hightlights, I don’t know if it fits this composition though…
Congrats for the perfect framing ! Nice subject( and timing as well but the hardest thing is sometime knowing what you want, right ? :smiley:

More eccentricity from me using GIMP! Saturation taken to extremes.

Thank you very much for your message.
I really like to use the Sigmoid module in combination with two instances of the local contrast module for highlights and lowlights.
Greetings from Brussels,


Thank you very much and enjoy :smiley:

I really like the clarity & contrast of the original but I also like the increased colour of the edited version. Either way they are great images, beautifuly framed. I suspect you had planned this shot for a while before getting the perfect sunset.
