Great Smoky Mountain Sunset

This evening had the best sunset of the six nights at the Great Smoky Mountains. This is a HDR image but I processed it to look very close to what it did in real life. The HDR help mostly on the horizon where the sun was setting (preventing the blow out) and to lighten up the mountains in the foreground. I used 3 RAW images 2 stops apart.
