You show five different mountain elements with their different features plus the sky, all perfectly framed and exposed; not an easy task. That's really a pleasing picture. I'd be willing to bet that picture is shown pretty much as exposed because I think no amount of tweaking could give the same result. Any info?

Gallatin

I agree with the others.

I might add that it is refreshing with this new "colour scale" - restrained and very tasteful. It´s a picture I won´t forget

Thanks for the comments everyone, I really appreciate it! It was very nice of you to reply. I look forward to going out west again this summer (hopefully).

Yes, it's pretty much as exposed. I adjusted the saturation slightly and applied some sharpening. The only processing I used was Canon's free Digital Photo Professional, which I like quite a bit. It was taken with a Rebel XT and the Canon 70-300IS lens (which IMHO is a great lens - it has L image quality but not L build)). The focal range is 70mm(112mm on a 1.6x sensor). If I had a wide zoom on, I would not have had that frame. I needed to have a bit of zoom to get those layers. Plus, the 70-300IS is really sharp at 70.

The picture was taken outside of Yellowstone(in Wyoming)in the Shoshone National Forest. The snowcapped peaks are the North Absaroka Wilderness, which is a protected wild area that borders the northeast corner of Yellowstone.
