Very nice shot ^^

Besides, I have two questions :

1- Did you perform and superpose 5 shots with different exposures ? 

2- What do you mean by Nik Colorfx ?

Regards !!

Thanks !! :)
I exposed for the stadium lights first, since it was my main subject and I wanted to avoid blown out highlights. (manual exposure used) Then I took a standard 5 shot panorama and stitched them together in PS. No exposure blending, layered exposures or HDR techniques. 
Nik Color  is a add on plug in by Nik software. I like to use the white neutralizer and their pro contrast. Just be sure to not overdo it. Small adjustments is key.

I shot another pano set at longer shutter speeds and could have blended with this image to brighten certain aspects like the Science World building at the right and the foreground, but decided against it. I wanted to make this feel more like a night shot with a dark sky(instead of a brighter over-saturated blue), while the setting sun and the stadium lights were not blown out, but balanced somewhat. That gave me a slight effect that, most of the lights in the city are all darker compared to the stadium. I wanted to give the illusion that most everyone in the city wasn't home, but at the stadium, the main subject of the image. I probably could crop the top a little but decided to stick to the rule of thirds and keep the water line on the bottom third. :)
