Another Shot of Marina Bay

I took this shot about 30 minutes before the laser light show on one of the alcoves of the Helix Bridge. It is a 5-shot HDR. I had to do some post work after tonemapping in Photomatix...well, I always have to do post work, but more than most on this photograph. I don't like what Photomatix does to the skies, so I blended back in one of my original exposures to get the sky right. I also blended in one of my exposures for some of the buildings. Even though I used a tripod, the buildings were not as sharp as I wanted, so I had to mask back in one of the exposures for sharpness as well. I then isolated some of the colors, and boosted them...in the end, a nice shot of the Marina Bay Sands area...

You and Blame the Monkey seem to be competing for the best shot although I know you aren't. Great stuff.
