I try to stay within reality and what I saw with my photos, but sometimes it is fun and interesting to step off the deep end.
I did boost saturation in the yellows, blues, and magentas to get the colors to come out more from the RAW data. Then an overall, mild saturation increase.

This is an amazing photo and one of the most beautiful I've seen here in a long time. This was one of those moments and you were very lucky to capture it! The range in color temperature is just great, and the details are too. There's real texture in the clouds, which works well with the texture in the grass. And having the trees across the horizon as true black silhouettes really gives a defining line through the scene. Definitely a favorite and a 10.
