Park Sunset v4

One heck of a gorgeous sunset from one of the parks in Collierville, TN. I had a fairly good time getting this set of photos, despite the mosquitos, heat, and dust on the CMOS sensor. The only subject more beautiful that evening was Alicia. Anyway, I hope everyone enjoys this photo, I put a lot of work into it, mainly in post processing!
-Technical Mumbo Jumbo-

Camera: Canon 350D (Digital Rebel XT)
Lens: Canon 18-55mm
Filter(s): Kenko Circular Polarizer
Shutter Speed: 1/2.5, 1/2, 1/1.3 seconds
F/number (aperture): f/22
ISO: 100
Focal Length: 18mm
Post: Processed RAW in CS2, three photos merged together using layers, variable exposures achieved by using reveal masks and white to black gradients. Minor saturation increase, color balance, levels adjusted for contrast, High Pass overlay for sharpening, and cloning out of dust specs caused by a dirty CMOS sensor (now clean).
