This one took some work.
I've noticed that the HDR process seems to generate noise-like anomolies. (Perhaps I would not have noticed it had I not blown the image up to the 1-10 pixel level :) Anyway, I went after the little boogers with dFine noise reduction plug-in to Photoshop. It gave the sky a radiant look and took the fuzziness out of the details like the boat masts.
I love the richness and exposure balance that HDR brings.
