Mount Rainier - 3

Taken about 8 minutes before the previous image. The sky was a bit more saturated, and I used a slightly cooler white balance on this one. It's also a tad bit under exposed to bring out those bright colors in the sky. For some, it may be too saturated, and although I added very little actual saturation with the slider in lightroom, I'm curious about others opinions in regards to that...


Also, this is a good lesson on when to back off of the polarizer a bit; if you look at the small stream in this one and the same stream in the previous shot, you can see that it stands out much better in the previous shot because I backed off just enough to let some reflection on the stream. On this shot, there's no reflection at all in the stream... I still forget to pay attention to that from time to time :)


This particular morning really was an awesome sunrise, and the stuff behind us was even better, but I had tunnel vision and was focused on the mountain :)
