This one taken on Scene function, Sunset. It does really accentuate the red end of the spectrum, but it is actually not far from what the eye was seeing at the time. No added saturation in Lightroom, IIRC, just some sharpening.

This one was taken with flash, on max focal length. Just a little patch of red left, so I framed it. Pretty much exactly as it came off the camera.
