...I'm amazed that this has worked. The light was at least 8 stops different between the sky and water.

2 shots blended, then that was blended with another one for the sky. Similar to the last image posted.

Don't you just love digital photography?

Have a great weekend.

Wonderful image Dougie. I loved your last upload but this is even better. The processing's spot on too I'd never have guessed it was a blended image, the amount of contrast is spot on...

You ever work in a darkroom Mike?

Cheating sometimes sounds like "I can't do it", so it's not fair.

Spectacular is the word.
I can undo my mistakes (well, if I notice them) in the computer. In the darkroom it was always too late!

Another majestic beauty, Dougie - the play of light, shadow and cloud is almost orchestral in its grandeur.

Both of them are amazing spectacles Dougie and a mountain image to die for, this one just pipping the other for me.

I have yet to climb Starav and photograph it actually so now I have the inspiration to do so.
