Impressive, but gee I sure hope those colors are authentic. That'd make this x100 more times impressive, not that it'd be bad if it was fake. I saw photoshop was used, but you coulda just curves and contrasted it. Good way to keep everyone wondering!
Lovely work!

It's a singe exposure in RAW format which ALWAYS requires to be developed in a RAW Converter such as Lightroom. In Photoshop I have only sharpened the image and changed it to sRGB color space. There is no such thing as an "authentic" photograph. Each and every photograph in the world has certain influences on it. Even for the crappiest smartphone image an algorithm decides what is "authentic" and compresses data as it deems best. But yes, this is what the place looked like :)

In the means authentic, I thought it was obvious I was implying that post-developing software was not used to the extent that the straight-outta-camera original shared little resemblance. Does any influence affect the authenticity of a photograph? I suppose I just meant in processing. Authenticity, in that respect, at its core, was certainly lost when film died.

Oh my... it's amazing ! I love the composition and the colours. Blue and yellow looks incredible together, but in here it's even more special !
And the stars... Is it post processing? Great job!

Amazing gradient colours and shadows! The placement of the sun and how it blinks makes this photo much more interesting! Very well shot!
