...and you have no real agenda other than not to be in the bush after dark you can stop , get out of the car and take a little hike for views like this. If I ever realy get to retire , I think I would enjoy it - I am one lottery win away

I'm sorry Dave, but a couple of the clouds are a hair out of place, the foreground isn't quite the right shade of brown and there are the wrong number of trees - you'll just have to keep going back to take more pictures to share with us

That is one slick looking mountain. A wall shot for sure.

But here'd I'd make a suggestion to see if you like it. Since you have a few blowout spots in the clouds, how about taking the best looking sky from your (3?) inputs to Photomatix, and then masking out, or blending with, the the HDR sky? I've been doing that with OnOne Perfect Mask and it works really well but I think you can do that in Lightroom too.

Damn can't fool you Marc it was all really just photoshopped in - ok as a matter of fact I am heading back to the Moutains this weekend (different areas though)

Thanks GeoJerry - this was the result of a Pano and not such much multiple exposures. I hope to try more HDR's this weekend. I was thinking of getting the Topaz mask plugin, how do you find One Perfect to work ? Is it a stand lone product or plugin ?

Dave, I so want to be back there. That area of Alberta was our favorite part of the Alaska trip (except for some of your customs people ). Beautiful photo and I hope you keep posting more of them.

I'm pretty happy with OnOne's masking module, haven't used she of the others so much. You can run it standalone or as a plugin to Aperture or PS (I use Aperture). I have had some trouble though exporting from OnOne back to Aperture. I have Topaz Adjust and Denoise, but have not tried their masking.
