My first try with Wukong HDR. It did bring out a bunch of details, especially in the trees.

After that, converted from RAW and a bunch of other little tweaks (curves, saturation, contrast, etc). Cloned out a few dust bunnies, slight crop. Resize with only the tiniest bit of sharpening (that sharpened look was caused by the HDR part at the start).

One of my favourite photos from a fantastic road trip between Seattle and Chicago and back again.

Wow I was right

LOL yes you were - try as I might to keep it "real", it still had a bit of that HDR look to it anyway. Perhaps I'll get better with it some day, perhaps some photos simply turn out that way.

the halos around the plants at the bottom indicate too much processing, perhaps over-sharpened?

Nice composition, especially how the reflection is nicely framed in the water. The focus is not as sharp as I like and I would like to see a little more contrast. Good Luck. 6.

I really like the framing of the water by the greenery. Not too sure I like the halo around the tops of the trees, but it does help add some depth between them and the mountains. Very nice sharpness to the mountains and a great, glassy reflection.

Looks like it could be the cover to Outdoor Photography magazine, what a great image.
