This was taken some time ago from Victoria, B.C., with a Nikon 8800 at somewhere near full zoom.

More recently, after reading about HDR I tried using Photomatix Basic and Photoshop to accentuate the snow on the mountain tops. This is the result, & for the present, I'm using it as my desktop wallpaper.

Great result of your effort, Herb. Like with many pictures I like very much I made a variation, just a variation, further emphazising the mountains

Such a nice foregroundcontributing thecomposition while revealing your sensible appreciation for the subject! The hdr outputs often require a Photoshop processas you did (you might alsolike to try a high radius but low amount sharpening here, let's say r-40 amount: 10%)....and then a Neat Image pass at quite 'moderate'settings ; ) I find the cropping suggestion helpful to emphasize the majesty of the mountains. Again, well done Herb
