A most unusual and beautiful sunset yesterday. The atmosphere not just the sky had a Rose glow. I am having a time trying to bring out that faint glow, I have a similar issue in dealing with the fainter glow from sun shafts. This was processed in DPP 4, I didn't have time to try it in Photoshop (CS4). Any hints or tricks ?
P.S. The saturation is a result of the upload

Did you shoot in RAW? Sometimes simple white balance adjustments can help of lab color adjustments in PS. Good luck!

You could try lowering the temperature in ACR, not sure about PS4 but try to open the image in ACR by clicking Ctrl+Shift+A and up the top you will see a temperature slider. Move it to the left and see what happens :)

The color is right, this is what it looked like only milder. It is raw, it is hard to describe the actual scene. It was almost like a mist or fog, a glow that was the air between me and the sky not reflections . When I make adjustments to bring it out it overtakes the scene. I played some in Ps but I don't think I am going to be able to get a 2D photo to capture the 3D event, sad because it was truly unique and beautiful.

Good that it's RAW,. Obviously without being there in person it's hard to suggest anything. However you may need to play with different channels, curves or selective color but make the adjustments on separate adjustments layers to be non-destructive. And see what happens. If you are looking for a misty look, you may apply a gradient etc :)
