Twilight Dune KI

Do you know how to capture the subtle, pastel tones that occur at the opposite horizon of a sunset?

To be honest, I don’t really know myself. If I expose the histogram “correctly” the sky is too bright an loses it’s colour. Even when I underexpose, the colours are never really as vibrant as what I see with my eye (which is interesting since many times the opposite is true). So my solution is to increase vibrance in post processing. Sure, it works, but I feel like there must be a better way?

Any ideas?

    Arakis is a planet and cetrepiece in Frank Herbert’s sci-fi novel series Dune. Vertually the entire world; aka: “Dune”, is covered in arid sandy desert and wind swept dunes. The sand is presumably made not so much by erosion but by titanic worms that live there and are hunted by people as their bodies break down into a “spice” that can be harvested for a mutlitude of extremely valuable purposes. I think Arakis is where Goerge Lucas got the idea for the world Tatooine in Star Wars. Much of Star Wars is similar to the story of Dune. James Cameron’s Avatar has some plotlines that are also similar.

    Anyway, your photo could almost be a book cover for Dune.

    To answer your original question, I’ve also only been able to do it through post-prod also. Some say it can be achieved by shooting in RAW but I can’t see it, and some also disagree with that.

      I guess in a way that post processing in inherent in RAW capture, therefore isn’t much different thank post production with jpegs. I suppose there might be more information to work with, but I would say that it’s still not the same it is in person.
