Default Color (Hue)

What color(s) is the screener expecting when the sun is only minutes from disappearing below the horizon?

Should I appeal or conform to the norm?

Maybe just ease back on the warmth a little. Don't eliminate it, just dial it down a bit. If you feel it needs to be on RP, which is a personal decision.

Right, Golden Hour can't be too Golden, Blue Hour can't be too Blue and night time can't be too dark unless some threshold is reached.

I guess it doesn't need to be on. It's not a true "wedgieee". I just thought others would like a viewing a shot taken in the last wee minutes of sunlight.

You should try to make it work, nice location where a northbound turns west into the sun at the right place. Even if it is not exactly what originally wanted you may still like the result???

I agree, try to make it work, it's a nice scene. I perceive a slight greenish cast to the shot, especially on the silos. Auto color correction gets rid of it with one click but retains the warmish tones that are correct for the low sun lighting. Worth a shot.

I think you (and auto color) nailed it. Got rid of the green and kept the warmth.

Thanks for the encouragement and suggestions! Gave it a whirl. Got back an underexposed rejection. Brightened it up some and it made it. Phew!!
