Thanx for the kind words guys, and to answer to your questions:
Bob: I did notice the grass was a bit...well..green! the saturation isn't up all that high to be honest. I raised the contrast and saturation just enough to give it zing but I wasn't to interested in making all the colours pop to much. I tried a couple of things to help the grass a bit but all methods affected the rest of the photo or ended up looking a little lifeless, so I left the grass. Maybe because I was tired I couldn't be bother figuring it out
Thomas: I used Photomatix Pro to do the Hdr and CS3 for final touches. I combined 3 shots at f:13, focal length: 18mm, and shutter at:1/13s,1/25s,1/6s. The exposure steps were 1EV I think, not entirely sure because I changed it a few times.
I took about 3 groups of this particular shot with slight different variations in shutter speed, and I found (in this case) having the well exposed shot slightly under exposed helps. Before I had a tripod I tried HDR once before and had the well exposed shot the best I thought it could look but after merging the images it was to bright/white or bland looking and altering colours didn't seem to take that away. As for any special treatment, nothing to drastic: mild application of - contrast, saturation, sharpening (sky only), warming filter on 10%.
