Memorial Day weekend and the clan went exploring. We've been here in Southern Maryland US for 6 months and not ventured any further than Washington DC or Annapolis. So, 4 hour drive and 2 night stay in the Appalachians to explore and experience Natural Bridge, the Natural Bridge Caverns and Foamhenge.

Processing on this. Convert CR2 image to DNG (my software can't handle the new RAW file format), export seven exposure level using Lightroom, HDR with Photomatrix, tweat it in Photoshop with Topaz Adjust, reimport into Lightroom to tweak the colours a little more, resize for challenge using Fireworks. Went back for some additional touches... burn some of the shadows on the rocks to remove some of the artificialness of the HDR.

It's a little dark, but overall I like this one. I gave it a 6, and I see I wasn't alone!
