There's an HDR feel to this image, Stephen. Gentle colors and softness give it a illustrated look. Your composition is interesting and first-rate.

@Michael Skorulski: Greetings Michael - good to hear from you. Single image - shot at ISO 50 - RAW - and processed through Lightroom 2.5 before working in Photoshop - I find it makes a huge difference and I can't wait for LR 3.0 - the sharpening and noise reduction functions are becoming most impressive. Cheers.

Antoine from France

Great view.

Great shot with meticulous framing. I will echo Michael by saying that this shot does have an HDR feel to it (I like the look).
