Photomatix

 

- Tonemapped generated HDR using detail enhancer option

 

Photoshop

 

- Added a layer effect mask of 'curves' to slightly increase the contrast

- Added a layer effect mask of 'saturation' (yellows) to enhance the tone of sunset

- Added a layer effect mask of 'saturation' (blues) to adjust the lightness of the sky

- Added a layer effect mask of white to enhance the sun ray

- Applied spot healing tool to remove stained spots from the lens

- Applied noise reduction to the field

- Used 'unsharp mask' (as always) on the background layer
