Or can the position of the sun also have an effect on how the red color is seen?
Absolutely. I love shooting Air Berlin in the evening, because the sunset colors really bring out the red colors.
I would use a 3:2 crop on these photos. This one looks slightly high in the frame, and I don't see the need for all the grass included at the bottom.
In all the photos that have been rejected for contrast, it looks to me like I would bring the black slider up a bit, but also darken the midtones a bit. I've found that's a good way to get rid of the washed-out look, and it should help the red look more red.
I'm watching Jeopardy. The category is worst Madonna songs. "This one from 1987 is terrible".
