Default Out of the camera look....

I would really like to see what this image looked like straight out of the camera before any editing.

Do you think it was more than a routine amount of editing?

IDK 😐, hence the post. Do you think itís the result of the west coast fires or the Hawaii volcanic eruption?

I've seen and photographed lighting such as that several times. It didn't stick out an unusual edit to me.

The first post I am more that than willing to allow for creative interpretation, seen some pretty wild sunsets and add in fire smoke.
I remember in slide days seeing two versions of exact scene in magazine of special at Morant's curve and thinking no way could that be the same place on the same day.
Different film, exposure and magazine processing???

However, not simply to pick on this one, there are others in my opinion in the same category go beyond interpretation. This is a striking photo for sure but once the sun is out the shadows are not anywhere!! near that dark and headlights not that subdued when backlit in the world I live in. It could be out of box just Not sure how many stops you need to underexpose.

Sometimes, the best images look like crap coming out of the camera, especially if you're looking at Adobe's attempt to speak Nikon. But with a little (or a lot of) editing, the results become spectacular. It don't particularly care how much editing Chase had to do to achieve this image. As long as it does not look abused (and this doesn't), the results are the only things that matter.

Personally I care less about what it looks like coming out of the camera, I think it's more about what it looked like in person and how well the final image (edited or not) reflects that.

It seems clear (IMO) that he exposed for the glint. I tried shadow recovery on it with disastrous results. Be that as it may, I have no problem faving it!
Sometimes an odd little detail jumps out at me, like why the headlights don't align vertically.

1/400th at F16 ETTL, it got me reading some more articles. Headlight thing is probably an artifact of suppressing the highlights?

Shame it's not in good focus either.

I agree with Loyd L. I don't see anything unusual with respect to the color. I've seen (and photographed) sunset and slightly post sunset shots as well as sunrise and pre-sunrise shots that look like that straight out of the box.
