Photographed during sunrise at the ever popular and beautiful Maroon Bells in Aspen, Colorado in the summer of 2011.
This 8 exposure HDR was first processed in HDR Efex Pro. I also processed the 8 images in Photomatix Pro. I took the resulting version from each and then manually blended the two versions together in photoshop - keeping the best parts from each. I then took one of the original 8 images and used the sky in that and replaced it in the hdr version. I then used Viveza, Color Efex Pro, and ultimately Silver Efex Pro, as well as many tweaks in photoshop, to achieve the look I was after.
A color version is also available
