What a wonderful location Gary, I like your composition and I think the processing is spot on, not overworked, quite natural looking. Interested to see what's next?

Magnificent composition, Gary!!!
A tad too bright for my taste.
I think a small contrast boost may counterbalance the Photomatix treatment, here and bring out the incredible detail you've captured.
I'm looking forward to more.
Cheers

Thanks folks for all you comments;

Bill, I know what you mean. I was tempted to play around with the curves to bring it back a little, but I liked the almost dream like look. Perhaps I'll pop up another version - probably going to have to wait until Monday now...

Andy, sent you a PM, but I'll try to upload the Photomatix Settings on Monday.

Sezz, The next shot will probably be a step too far - extreme Photomatix - again will probably have to wait until Monday - need to pack tonight.

Cheers,

Gary

Processing looks spot on to me, but like Andy, I would like to know the settings you've used. I've tried to get shots of buildings to come out like this but have not succeeded to date.
