Candidate For Best Shot of 2012

Taken from the end of last week's shot, this shot is an unexpected favorite. I took a lot of sunset shots, primarily with the goal to make an HDR shot. So when I got the photos back into Aperture I immediately went to work on finding what set of shots worked out. I was disappointed that I got a couple keepers, but not as many as I originally thought I'd like. But I was really disappointed in one set that looked promising but just wasn't turning out how I wanted. So then I went to work on it without HDRing it. Turns out that was the way to go. I got rid of the noise in the shadows, bumped the saturation and definition up a bit, and voilà. Easily one of my favorite shots of 2012.
