Basking in the Glow

In the final minute before the sun went below the horizon, I spotted this carrion crow taking on a strange colour - almost sunburnt you might say. You can also see the setting sun reflected in the windows behind.

A simple composition but surreal colour. For once, I haven't overlaid any other sky or colour, nor have I enhanced existing colour (in fact I have slightly desaturated it because I felt it was too strong). I'll only admit to a bit of tone-mapping (to reveal the feather details), curves (to control the contrast) and some sharpening.
