#7 Rainier Sky

Taken above Paradise on the slopes of Rainier on July 1, 2007.

Camera: Canon 20D, EF-S 17-55 f/2.8IS @ 17mm
Exposure: 1/1000s at f/9
ISO: 100

Photoshop: Applied shadow/highlight filter to bring out the sky. Over sharpened the clouds to pop them from the blue sky and give them some texture. Used channel mixer to create a B&W image but applied a gradient mask so that only the bottom would go to B&W. Final curves adjustment to create more drama. See Photoshop screen grab below. Layers turned off to display original shot.
