I never actually got a glimse of the sun, only hints of it as it rose above this layer north of Mt. Baker, WA. I enhanced the color a tad with PS Curves, but otherwise left it alone.The diagonal line in the center is a shadow off of a background peak.

Did I shoot this properly? At ISO200 there was noise (until I removed it with NeatImage). The mountains have a blueish cast anddon't look sharpto me. I did not use a tripod for this, perhaps next time.

For these special lighting situations where I don't trust the auto-exposure, I'm still struggling to decide how much aperture vs. shutter speed vs. ISO. In this case I had the aperture wide open to achieve the fastest shutter possible to minimize camera shake. When do I go with a higher ISO? When would I use 400?

Hi Ken,

A visual metaphor for the Peer Gynt Suite, The Dawn!

If you want, I did try tweaking it a bit and can post it here.

Just let me know...if you PM me, with a link to this thread that would help

Love the shot!

It brings back great memories of my times in mountain country!

Be my guest, I'd love to see what you can do. I've already punched it up as much as I dare (without making a lie out of it) with PS.

Okay, Ken...


Here you go...

I will leave it to you, as the original viewer, regarding whether it is "true to life".

Nice job. I think the truth lies somewhere between my version and yours.
