Default A giant through the clouds....

Went with some friends up into the local mountains over the weekend....it snowed, even though its almost summer. There was perhaps 8 feet of snow pack on the ground where I took this shot (from the deck of the ski lodge where we stayed), I imagine triple that or more up on the mountain.

Ok, I'll go ahead and comment. While being there and getting the break in the cloud may have been dramatic, the mountain, although the focus of the shot, is lost in the cloud. As per the previous comment, playing with contrast brings it out more. I just did a quick adjustment on curves. You lose the detail in the trees, but the mountain stands out more. Don't know if that's the effect you wanted though.

It does a psuedo-HDR treatment on a single image. Here's yours on the default settings. I'd also suggest it feels slightly heavy on the right side so maybe a slight crop off the right and bottom, keeping the same aspect ratio.
