how long it took you to edit this one? Looks pretty good.

Not too long. I took the shot and it was almost straight up into the overcast causing the clouds to be way over exposed. After looking at it I decided to create a few images that were over exposed by a few stops, a few that were underexposed by a few stops, and merge them to create an HDR shot. My real goal was to just bring the detail of the clouds in, but I fiddled with colors a little as well and it really brought the image together.
