Much better clouds nowadays ! Maybe all colors should be specified with srgb
though, to better match the current linear workflow and not desaturate that
much?

You're more of an expert than me at all of this, but I'm wondering if the
reflection appearing more saturated than the actual sky is a realistic
phenomenon, or some kind of optical illusion like darker tones appearing more
saturated ? did you use conserve_energy in the finish block ?

Thanks for sharing.
