That's a great shot Mark. I would have to say the post-processing is a little much, notably the artificial looking pop/contrast on the clouds as well as how the over-sharpening really brought some of the noise in the sky and clouds. But overall, the details are really nice and it's well framed and lit. IMO, would be perfect if some of the sharpening / tonal contrast was reigned in just a tiny bit.

Anyways, here's a shot I got of the Pack Fire smoke plume behind Grays and Torreys last evening, from Mt. Bierstadt. This was just on a dinky point and shoot that at least has a ton of optical zoom. Very minor post-processing (just brought the mountain lightness down a bit). It appears that imgur has mutilated it with some jpeg compression, but you get the idea.

This past Thursday went overnight to LCW and camped at about 12,000 ft with the intent of getting some pics of the meteor shower. Mother Nature had other plans. I woke up around midnight to thunder & lightning. 1st pic is a 50 second pic taken around midnight. The shadows are raised up to show the foreground and add depth. 2nd is a zoomed in sunrise the next morning.

The risk I took was calculated, but I'm terrible at math.
