Very nice shot. Outstanding detail in the bright areas.

Just for interest, here it is compared with the sRGB color space:

Plotted on the familiar 'horseshoe' 2D diagram.

The red color clipping looks worse that it really is because the clipping is occurring in lower tones:

The somewhat less familiar 3D Lab diagram

Here we see that the red color-clipping occurs below about 35% lightness with very little effect on that particular image but, still, it is there.
