    Thanks everyone! Yes I did some digital darkroom work. I had to dodge the foreground and burn the sky just like I used to do when I worked in a traditional darkroom for my "purist" friend Clyde Butcher. I also added some saturation which I couldn't do for Clyde.

    Love the colors and the stillness it communicates. Seeing some of your other landscapes' shots, I can see you're a pretty accomplished photographer. Your work seems professional for me, an amateur.
