After reading and practicing some new processing techniques, this image is a continuation of the theme of expanding dynamic range. In this case I used a combination of HDR and saturation, luminosity and layer blending to combine 2 exposures taken at 30s and 10s, f11 (2.5 stops). It was dark enough that I couldn't see any details in the rocks but could make out the general shape and thought they might provide a good lead into the frame. I used a combination of techniques taught in the books and tutorials by Vincent Versace, Tony Kuyper, and Zack Schnepf. Obviously they are all far more accomplished but at least I can try and it's all fun to learn. All comments and discussion are welcome and have a wonderful day.
