I absolutely loved this view. I got this with a 300mm lens, 1/250@f/5, Pentax K10D, and a monopod. This did not start out as an HDR image; I got a lot more contrast into the mountains using Gimp. And that is what I wanted. I’m learning that an Overlay layer works really well for a ND filter.
(Original size of this picture was 10500×1280. This is the first time I actually ran my workstation out of memory while using Gimp, even. I was using over 3.6G ram on this picture, and I should have had much more available but I’m running a development version of Gimp.)
