ChuckJ-

Looking at your two photos, I have to ask several questions. Was the second Canon photo taken using the Sunset Scene Mode?

It was an S3. I don't think it had a Sunset mode. The photo is from 2008. I honestly don't remember what I would have used. It was probably one of the preset modes though. After checking the EXIF (if I'm understanding it correctly) it was taken in Landscape mode.

Also after checking my photo folder it appears that I must have adjusted the contrast in PSP. Sorry. Here is the original.

Oh yeah.

Why I asked is that the Red Channel is really running high which is a sure sign that a pre-set mode like the Sunset Mode was used.

I honestly don't know. I haven't messed with that camera much since those photos were taken. I pulled it out and looked and can't find a pre-set that looks like it would highlight the red. Of course based on memory the photo is a fairly close representation of the actual sunset. It was one of the most vivid and impressive sunsets that I had ever seen. It even impressed the wife. It's time like that that I wish I knew more about photography.

Here's the different stages that it went through.
