No filters. 1/6th of a second, handheld, too, lol. It wasn't perfectly sharp at 36mp, it was like 6am or something and I'd been up all night, was super sore, taking tons of coffee and tramadol to stay awake, we were in a hurry and I didn't feel like getting the tripod out (I should have). Was driving out of crater lake, saw the scene and really loved it, had to jump out and take the shot. Ended up clicking it to 18mp in ACR, and it was perfectly sharp at that resolution (good enough). Did a ton of editing to get the shot the way I liked it. Here's the exact editing that I did:
1. Made it 18mp, changed to camera standard from adobe standard (camera neutral, portrait, and standard all look good on the D800, adobe standard, vivid, and landscape have wrong looking colors to my eyes--note I also feel the stock white balance on the D800 looks wrong, at least to my eyes. I change it to +1 +1 in the amber and red directions).
2. Set highlights to -25 and shadows to +25.
3. Make gradient adjust on the sky to bring down exposure by .5. Then raise the whole thing by .25.
4. Set sharpening and NR (I use 50, .8, 50, 10 masking...as my sharpening settings). For NR I use 10/75 and 10/75.
5. Set local adjustments to brighten the bottom area a little and bring out the color. Note that the trees and such were black in the raw file by default. Added vibrance and got the color how I wanted it.
6. At this point: Set clarity to -10. Open file. Re-open, set clarity to 50 (I think I turned sharpening off, too, and NR to 25). Then, blend the clarity 50 sky with the clarity -10 ground.
7. A bit of tweaking in photoshop, and then done. Yay.
The shot would have needed to be HDR on my 60d. However, on the other hand, on my 60d, actually composing and focusing the night shots of crater lake would have been a cinch with live view. On the d800, live view is USELESS in the dark/dusk/twilight. :\ Also, just because you can bring out shadow detail doesn't always mean you should, of course.
Here's a couple more from the trip:

This one is HDR...yeah, you could get most of that DR from one shot, and you could pull detail and green out of the trees but it looks wrong imho--the light needs to flow the way it would in the scene with shadows showing where they should...imho..
