Hi guys,

Took this a couple of weeks ago, it's a shot of Pen-y-Big, Wales. I deliberately timed my hike to reach the summit towards the end of the day in order to get the good light.

I would have hung around a little longer for the sunset but i didn't fancy the hike back in the dark. I'm going again at the weekend, this time i'll take my torch!

I really like your edit Bahadir, the contrast with sky and cluds is outstanding. How did you acheive this? I did play around with curves for a while but couldn't quite get the effect you acheived!

In the first place it requires an insprational image such as yours : )Well, it's true!!

As in some Italian proverb, fake love does not sell:G

Ah, technical part only succeeds this very essential, which is, I work on the landscape and the skyscape separatelyusing the curves as you also do; ) ...and this is like arranging a bunch of flowers,just no strict formulae!

Same here, two layers one tweaked for the mountain, the other for the sky, then using a layer mask blended using the gradient tool. I just couldn't get the blue looking as blue as you did. I'm gonna have another fiddle tonight! :?
