This last weekend, I went to Mt. Rainier to shoot the mountain in the reflection lakes during sunset. Unfortunately, the sky was completely blown out. So, I settled for shooting the rest of the reflection pool. This is called the Artist pool and generally has a complete reflection of Rainier in it on a still day. The reflections are fantastic and the trees around the pool are real nice. So, I grabbed this shot.

Since a JPG is by default a lossy compression for images, this image has a rather nasty Moire pattern in the sky (since it was blown out and then compressed). This is seen more on a non-calibrated monitor. The larger version (see link above) looks better, but you need a calibated monitor at high resolution.
They really should have called the magazine TIFF and used a format that while larger, at least looked better uncompressed. :-)
