Yet another Yosemite Valley photo.

In RAW -> HSL / Grayscale, reduced BLUE while in the Luminance tab to enrich the blue sky. Levels a few times over. High Pass Filter sharpening. Reduced full frame, no crop. Added my not-so-popular border. Saved.

I got lucky. At 5:15 pm the setting sun was an enhancement I wasn't expecting. In my photos, I like the dark section more visible, but I didn't try to bring it out much as I think the extreme contrast between shadow and sunlit cliffs made the shot.

With that said, I predict 6.25.

The red type was my added HTML code to the title.

Red type? Is time of day important to the viewer?
Very good editing of excellent composition with drawing the eye down the valley but a bit more shadow detail would not take that away. Sky a bit oversat for me. Very nice job. GL.
