Fabulous! I have a question How did you manage the light differences between the fire and the sky? Did you use a graduated filter?

@KriKridesign: Thanks, Christine. I may have used a GND with this but don't remember. I just reprocessed the raw file with the latest Lightroom and found that I was able to get a lot more out of the highlights than I did when I processed it a couple of years ago.
