I’m not completely happy with this, but it is a technically challenging subject. This is a picture with an incredibly high dynamic range. Shadows on most of the landscape on the dark side and the setting sun on the other extreme. This is a compilation of 21 (7 HDR triples) images. It took a while to process and the only correction I did in post processing, other than the HDR processing and Panorama stitching, is to add an adjustment layer of curves with the lightening preset. I played around with it a little, but I think I am going to be happier with the ones with a little more sun kissing the highpoint of the topography.
I took several hundred bracketed shots on Wednesday. These are the last series. Another couple hours of processing and we’ll see what we get tomorrow when I process the earlier images.
