A massive thanks to everybody who commented on the previous version of this image. I was blown away by the amount of comments people made and it was invaluable to have so many people (including some very talented photographers) offer their opinions. It really allowed me to go back and re-evaluate the image with fresh eyes.

This is a totally new image made from the reprocessed RAW files. It's still a blend of 3 exposures but no HDR and is I feel much more faithful to how the scene looked. It's still quite dark but it was about 20 mins after sunset so it was quite dark & I wanted to keep that feel. The mountains are also covered in temperate rainforest which is a very dark green when its wet (and it was very wet!). The lighter mountains in the distance and the stripe on the right are bare wet rock which is reflecting more light. The stripe on the right is the result of a tree avalanche!

If you read this far thanks for sticking with me!

PLEASE DO VIEW THIS ONE LARGE AS THERE IS A LOT MORE DETAIL ESPECIALLY IN THE DARKER AREA

Many Thanks
Den

HDR is ruining so many images these days and in so many cases this sort of layered technique is the perfect solution. This is a splendidly atmospheric dark picture with an enormously pleasing and controled level of detail.

Well it looks like I'm going to disagree with everyone. I still think V1 of the last image is the best. I find the lightness particulary on the lhs rockface just a bit overdone. Mind you if I'd only seen this one I'd have been impressed.

Now that's interesting because the area on the lhs is much darker on the original. When I uploaded to epz and looked at the preview that area looked almost totally black especially on the small image so I dodged it in a bit before I uploaded as I though it helped when viewing at internet sizes. Maybe I over did it a touch? Anyway the original's in tact and I'm sure will have plenty of detail when I get it printed

Dennis This is a shot I wish I could have taken it is beuatifully composed and the colours add to the mood.

The only thing stopping this from winning every award known to man is the blown out sky in the centre and just above the mountains viewed large there is an anoying little red life ring that could be cloned out too.

Apart from that I could look at this image for ages it is fantastic.

Such a tough shot to take on bringing out the detail in the rocks but controlling the sky almost perfect.
