    This is so beautiful as is the post-processing. It's HDR-like but without the ugly grittiness usually associated with HDR. I would love to know how you processed this!

    Craig - It in fact is an HDR image. I shot bracketed photos (three at -2, 0, +2 EV). I then open them in Lightroom, do a little color correction and then merge them via Photoshop HDR Pro plugin. I merge it into a 16-bit file and then send it back over to Lightroom for minor post processing techniques to even out the image's brightness. I love the HDR process, and like you, get tired of the overcooked processing associated with HDR imagery. Thanks for the comment!

    Ahh, cool, thanks for that. Your image is perfect. I attempted a version like this (though only one exposure) but didn't come out even half way as nice as your photo. I'll try the bracketed way. Thanks again.
