A very nice photo and a good angle but I feel the only real color in this is the upper left-hand where the blue is and then the line of orange/red on the horizon. It seems to me the rest of the color is very monotone, especially in the forefront of the hill.

Thanks for your perspective. This is how I remember the scene, there was very little light to speak of, it was still dark, and the foreground is all green/yellow grass. I tried to process as I remember it. The blue is actually from the circular polariser I was using.

Ah, that makes sense. I understand the loss of color in the foreground obviously because of the day and there IS only so much you can do, even in post-processing. Like I said, it's still an awesome photo!
