Melbourne Sunset

Heres a shot of a sunset over Melbourne taken from Hawthorn East. I happened to just miss the tram to go and get some dinner so I was lucky in that sense as I noticed this sunset as I was walking along the road. So what I did was raced back home, grabbed my camera and run back out onto the main street... and here you go.

 

I put three exposures into Photomatix Pro 4 and started on the default setting. I then put the strength right up, colour saturation at around 60 (your choice), I put luminosity up slightly, white point slightly up as well as black point and left gamma alone. As it is a sunset I put the temperature up slightly to make it a bit warmer and then micro-smoothing up a little bit as well. Thats all I have done to this image.
