Strange sky...what kind of processing did you do on this shot?

@Pied Crow: See TD's comment below for the PP.
Wonderful shot, shroom! Thanks for remembering to post this... obviously just for me! ;-) These are some of the most vivid and unusual crepusculars I've ever seen, and you composed the shot perfectly to maximize the view of their spread. Really a beautifully balanced picture... color, contrast, clarity. Just love the little neon cross and entry at the little church.
Did you use your same "hit & miss" processing on this one?... "converted from RAW to jpg with Canon's DPP software, ran the jpg thru a pseudo-HDR program, trimmed and touched up a bit back in DPP, then finished up with a quick pass thru GIMP." However you accomplished the final image, it was a huge success! Thanks for sharing another terrific shot from that morning!!

@Tony Duque: Yeah, same pp flow. I was never happy with this pic, but learning some GIMP recently has made it good enough to post. TD, it took me a few minutes to get pulled over at a decent location and set up the tripod with cold fingers. The fan of light had shrunk from back over my head down to this in just those several minutes.
That is the craziest sunset ever!! Nice catch!

whatever you did, you ended up with a phenomenal final product!!! the sky is just too wild....and i see tony has used that newest of words i've just learned, crepuscular!!!! love the light, and colors, and especially, the neon looking light on the cross and building!!!

@Susan: I was desperate for anything interesting to put in front of the sunset before it shrank away. I sorta got lucky with the neon Christmas lights I suppose.
Brrrrrrr, now I remember why I moved to California ... but a fine shot!
