Lightroom - pull shadows, use gradient to darken skies, profile and saturation adjustments
Perfect Effects 8

Nik Viveza 2
Final spot edits in Lightroom

And then the next to last edit got entered, with the final edit having dealt with the over-saturation of the yellows. Oh well, happy it did well as is.

And just so it's said, I'm an early riser - this is a sunrise, not a sunset. :)

I find the sign too obtrusive, and it takes away from the scene and a fantastic sunset. I think this would have been better if you backed up a little so the sign wasn't so dominant.

I am taking part in the "Comment on the first 10 photos during voting" challenge and you are photo #9

Wow, you could have not asked for a better sky and sunset for the shot. It's very bright and vibrant and really draws you in. Love hoe the sign captures my attention front he start and then the road leads my eye to the sunset. Great job. Cropping some from the left may have created a stronger photograph and it looks a little over cooked in the saturation, especially in the sky.

Gorgeous except for the greens which are yummy but look over saturated and too yellow. The sky is terrific and I love the smooth new asphalt and the way the painted lines lead us into the frame.
