I found that sharpening of the lightning made the sky darker than desired. So I laid the sharpened version over the predecessor image and made a composite by lightening (Picture Window Pro working on a TIFF from Fuji Raw File Converter).

PS. there is some serious dust on the left side of your sensor. Two large spots, which needs to be wet cleaned. I'll cleaned it of on the picture, but it was pretty visible.

sorry i post my processed photo here

LR should be just fine for this shot.

Too many people focus on sharpness for every photo. This photo has nothing to do with sharpness.

Here's one from Silkypix Develop Studio Pro 6:

Silkypix. No additional post-processing.

And here's another... also just from Silkypix, but with additional Silkypix sharpening applied.

I'm not saying that Silkypix is better than PN, but I much prefer my Silkypix rendering to your photo ninja one. To my tastes, lifting the shadows as much as you do detracts from the drama of the lightening and also produces an unnatural, overprocessed look. There are over-sharpening artifacts in the sky on your rendering, and also in the buildings on the ground. And the over-sharpening produces no additional details. Take a look at the fancy building to the right of the bright yellow light in both your PN image and my second SP image. Mine provides greater detail without the obvious processing artifacts.

I think you could do much better with PN on this one if you'd turn off the "smart lighting," which I imagine was imposed to even out the photo. For an image like this, you want to preserve the stark contrast between darker and lighter areas rather than flattening them.

My opinion, anyway.

Here's one a bit more like your PN rendering from Silkypix.  You can certainly see more details in the city, but I like the earlier one I posted better.

And a final Silkypix one, different color rendering:

last silkypix -- still too light, in my opinion

I really like your colors. Unfortunately, your sharpening yields double-lines and unnatural outlines on most everything in the photo.

Nice colors.

This is what I get by reducing the Silkypix image size by 50% in Irfanview:

Silkypix is not bad. Yours is better.  It would take a lot of fiddling in SP to improve it further.
