Sunset at the harbour

My 1st post here :slight_smile:
Hope I’m doing this right. Here’s a pic I shot in Fethiye, Turkey. I’ve just started with Darktable and am still trying to figure out the linear rgb workflow. This photo is almost at sunset, and I’m trying to get nice yellow/orange in the sky vs deep blue in the water. Hope someone here can point in the right direction.

IIt’s a pity the sun is so overexposed.

Quick & dirty RT version

Thanks for the replies :slight_smile: I’ll study these xmps to see what different methods you’ve used. About the over exposed sun, would it have been better if I’d taken the picture a couple of stops lower?

I’m liking the RT image the best. Will try to get that result in DT.

Thanks for sharing! Here’s my (a bit over the top) rendering, using ART:
