Nice one. No data recorded? It looks like a fish eye lens but is it HDR out of the camera or have you worked on it? The exposure seems to good to be true for such a large expanse.
CHEERS Vic.
Born again biker with lots of Pentax bits. Every day I wake up is a good day. I'm so old I don't even buy green bananas.

HI, yeah exif isnt recorded, I dont understand what the fuss is about with exif data, its not like it actually means anything. Unless you were there and could see how bright / dark or dynamic the scene was for yourself I dont see how you can use it as a comparison or reference. But Ill tell you how I did the shot that might benefit you more than a string of settings that are irrelevant as the light is different when you visit.

On spot metering I found the brightens and darkest point of the scene, I calibrated my exposure to be in the middle of my now established dynamic range. Bracketing 1.7 under and over I took 3 shots.

Processing. Lightroom 5, choosing the centre exposure I selected 'remove chromatic aberrations' in lens corrections, and pulled back the default sharpening to zero... I synced these settings across the 3 images before opening as Layers in PSCS6 and converting them to a smart object, stack mode 'mean'.

This rather flat looking image was returned to lightroom for exposure adjustments to create a balanced image. This was then returned to PSCS6 for some more adjustments using layers, topaz, and the Nik suit and then finishing in Lightroom.
