thanks for the kind words! when i saw the photo in lightroom i realized it was a definite keeper.
well, the shot was taken in raw with the CV 35 color skopar II (first version, thread mount) with the default lens hood
I believe the aperture was around f4 or f5.6 at 1/55th and ISO 800, and the lighting was really flat due to a bit of cloud cover and the fact that the sun had just set.
post processed in lightroom with a crop and bumping up the vibrance a bit, but not much else.
