This tutorial is to help you learn how to change the color of a sunset to any color you like.  This technique can be used to improve the look of a normal sunset or to completely change the look of a horizon.  Once you have your photo open in photoshop:

1. Create a New Hue/Saturation Adjustment Layer (Layer>New Adjustment Layer>Hue/Saturation).

2. Adjust the Hue to your liking, for this photo I used -87.

3. Adjust the Saturation if you wish, for this photo I used -38.

If this still doesn’t allow you to obtain the color you would like, try adjusting the Hue and Saturation by each color instead of just using Edit: Master.
