The last shot is out of the camera and converted to jpeg, zero adjustments. Keep in mind, jpeg conversion is not lossless, so the white/mids/blacks can be clipped, but the most important aspects are the white and the amber from the lights.

Nikon D700 / Nikkor 80-200mm f/2.8D [ 80mm f/5.6 for 1/80s tripod WB Red: 1.08 Blue: .90 ]

Reference: cloudy, 16:38 PST, pre-golden hour.

If anyone wants larger or the actual NEFs, PM me, I'm happy to compress them and send them.
Are they supposed to be yellow though?
