Thanks for the comments guys, I won't reveal my 3 dislikes just yet.
Kimchi: It was pretty simple - I just did a handheld bracketing burst, 5 exposures from -2 to +2, then rotated a bit as to have some overlapping and then repeated 3 more times. I used Photomatix to make 4 HDR images, saving the settings I used for the first and applied to the rest. Then stitched them together using DoubleTake. Finally, some edits in Aperture - sharpening, highlights, contrast, and saturation. Voila!
Karsan: Yeah, I'm tired of the snow as well - this shot was a "ok, jump out of the car, take the shot, and then get back to the heated seats"
Glad you like the shot.
