    Great colors... Too bad it is the cause of our Pine Beatle epidemic. Grand Lake has it really bad as well.
    I really like the subtle rays coming in across the top from the sun.

    It's volcanic! ;-)))

    A very enjoyable sense of light here, I dig. I wonder how many viewing this realize the pretty colors are from the mountain pine beetle lol.... one nit would be maybe a slightest bit of banding in the sky? I only mention as you have encouraged me to do so in the past, just tell me to shut up if I need too hah.

    Seen on your photo stream. (?)

    yo fort... you lost me, what is banding? thanks, you've encouraged me also, especially w/ the star shots!

    I guess there is a fine line between subtle rays and banding. I for one focus on the awesome fall colors in the foreground!

    Hey Jasen, sorry I missed your question on this image. But I thought you might like to know that your image is being used by one of the most preeminent/busy sites on the net: Huffington Post, see here. With your creative commons license they are able to use it commercially without compensation, not necessarily a bad thing if it helps get your name out there. But if you have some really special images I might consider changing the licensing on those to preserve your own intellectual property rights and potential to make money from your work in the future. I used to be all Creative Commons non-commercial but now am mostly all rights reserved. I still do allow free usage of my images occasionally, but this why I get to control it a bit more. I definitely took a hit on views though for changing my licensing away from Creative Commons.

    Now for your question on banding, see how there are like almost rays in the sky? That could indeed be from sun but often when doing HDR, heavy noise reduction, or gaussian blur to name a few banding can result. Essentially you get bands in the sky, so rather than a smooth gradation of blue you get an obvious dividing point of two different blues that can appear odd. To combat them believe it or not adding a bit of noise to the sky can work. And note some banding is not real, it's only an artifact of viewing an image at less then full size, these images will not show the banding in print and resizing for web can help limit the effects for online viewing. Yep, it's a can of worms.

    All right here's a pretty concise definition of banding with an extreme example: dpanswers.com/content/tech_defects.php#band

    I should have mentioned it can also be called posterization if that helps you conceive of what it is... or feel free to tell me to shut up at anytime. ;-)))
