Never saw it coming. No PP except for RAW conversion and some sharpening:

Nope, nada, nothing. This is the whole image as it came out of UFRaw.

Apart from raw conversion and a highpass sharpening, nothing was changed. Exif as shown below. Happened as I shot and forgot the camera was set to do 5 bracket shots - I started to lower the camera after the first shot. No skills involved, just pure unadulterated luck at work here!
