    Greg, this is incredible. Any chance you'd share your workflow on this one?

    Thanks Dave.

    This is shot at 14mm focal length. And it is a 5-shot Photomatix HDR composition. Without looking, its a pretty small aperture, maybe f16-18. Somewhere in there.

    Ok, thanks. I think you're pretty good at using Photomatix ! I've just started working with it and am going to work on my HDR skills. Hope I can put some together soon. Also hope you won't mind if I ask some questions over the next couple of weeks? I'm hoping to get some good material to work with over my vacation to Yosemite and San Francisco.

    Thanks again for the info.

    Absolutely. Take your tripod. Set up the camera to auto bracket 3-5-7 shots. Shoot in RAW. That way, as you get better in Photomatix, you can always go back to your originals and rework them!

    Very jealous of your upcoming trip!

    somehow I have a much less picturesque view of the road / road trips.

    Does a Jeep Trail count as a "road"? Yes the trail does go all the way up.

    BONUS points if you spot all the people in the shot.

    SIDE NOTE: I am now officially in love with Lightroom. This was one of the "reject" photos because the exposure was way off. (The cloud caused problems and I wasn't in manual mode.) The jpg from the camera is awful and can't be edited to be acceptable. This raw file... well take a look yourself: (Darn... now I have to re-edit all the things I uploaded to Smugmug... only use RAW converted to JPG by Lightroom during the publish.)

    Here are a few from our travels:

    1. Denali National Park (shortly after the ash clouds spewed by Mount Redoubt) - 2009
    i-tL4dgSg-L.jpg

    2. On the Way to Milford Sound in New Zealand's Fiordland National Park - 2011
    i-smctZNj-L.jpg

    3. Stuck in the Mud (in Kenya on a back road to visit the Masaii) - 2009
    i-28cnMgt-L.jpg

    This last photo was snapped with a P & S camera when we were all asked to get out and walk while they tried to extricate the van. Wish I had some Masai youth in the background with their livestock but we passed them earlier and later on the road. Really.

    Yeah, I wished I had taken some shots with the 7D but at least I have something to convey this "road less traveled".... :)
