I don't think this is what you're looking for but I thought I'd try Topaz Simplify's "buzsim" preset:

Thank you all for the great edits! Very impressed with what you guys/gals can do! One thing I have trouble with is adjusting the sky while affecting the ground/buildings/landscape and vice versa. What technique can I use to get a nice even sky with brightly lit focus on the city as well?

if i am not mistaken, in Lightroom you can use the adjustment brush with various effects (exposure, saturation, brightness etc) to achieve what you want to achieve

Photoshop has a tool called the lasso tool. With it, you can draw a box to include the sky and horizon line then make your adjustments then select "invert" and adjust your foreground.

Keven, I am sure you have CSx, but this tool is available in the less expensive Photoshop Elements as well. Works EXTREMELY well for a variety of uses.
