Thanks; I'll try it. I agree with Frank that hyper color isn't a good overall 
technique, but when it works, it works. That image seemed to beg for it.

That's faux HDR (or at least that's what I call it).

Open the image in bridge.  Adjust the exposure.  Take the Fill, and Recovery 
sliders all the way to the right.... Slide black close to (or all the way) 
right.  Add in as much brightness as you like (also maybe lowering exposure).  
For the kicker, add clarity and vibrance.

Finally, open in photoshop and finish with adjustments to curves or levels.

I like them all, and especially 1565 and both "wheels". What PS technique is 
that on 1565? That's a great visual treatment.
