Missed Sunset: A Tribute to the D300's Colors

You remember that sunset that I was ranting and raving about?
I did manage to catch the very end of it, but not from where I wanted to, and not with the lens that I wanted. To compensate? Boost saturation and contrast each to +3 and hope that the rediculous colors blow the viewer away and distract from the composition. What a horrible thing to do, yet I did it anyway.

Tech: Nikon D300, 28mm f2.8. 1/1000 sec, ISO 400. Aperture tells me that the saturation and contrast are only boosted to +2! Imagine if I had been at +3. The yellows would probably have blown out (more), but the blues would have likely come darker toward the top left corner.
