Red Maui, again

Got a bunch of amazing sunsets pictures when I went to Maui late last year. This picture is completely unedited, which is rare for me since I shoot in Raw, which means that you have to "finish" the picture in the computer. Normally, you adjust the colors to make them deeper and richer and add contrast and sharpen a bit. You can go for an alteration of reality or just make the scene appear as it did when you took the shot. This picture didn't need any of that, which is surprising, but that is how deep the reds were already in the sky. If I added any red, it would look unnatural. Anyway, this is exactly as I remember it and I look forward to future visits and future deep red sunsets.
