The next-best thing is natural lighting.
If the sunset shines on bright objects when the background sky is naturally darkened, say, from storm clouds, a natural contrast would be accentuated.
This was the situation I was given the other night, when I picked up my daughter from the Britannia Yacht Club. I caught it with my D-SLR.
While I did pump up the colours, I did not play with the contrast. I let Mother Nature take care of that effect.
