Going thru some old hard drives I found this one of St Josephs Lighthouse a few days after a fifty mile an hour blizzard. The shot was taken in about the last thirty seconds before the top edge of the sun dipped below the horizon. I merged first in Photomatix Pro, second I removed lens aberrations with an older program called Piccure +. I then upconverted with Topaz gigapixel 4 times. This was taken with a 16 megapixel camera. By up-converting then resizing back to out of camera it markedly will increase the detail without sharpening

Good of you to Freeze your Butt Off to capture and share this with us Steve. I like the info of how you came to this Final Post as much as the image itself. Thanks for posting it and stay warm.
