Yosemite Tunnel View

Driving North on Highway 41 from Fresno, this was my first view of Yosemite Valley, looking east. With the sun creeping behind the hills in the afternoon, I was having a hard time capturing the full range of light and shadows. So I exposed a single RAW image at -1, 0, +1 exposure values and tonemapped in PhotoMatrix. With the tonemapped image, I made a few edits in Photoshop - darkening the sky a bit and adding a some diffusion. View large.
