Seattle Landscape Photo of Lake Washington and Mount Rainier
I really like how this Lake Washington landscape photograph turned out. Using three images set at varying exposures, you can see how the oranges and yellows of the sunrise are striking but not so much so that they appear eerie or alien. The reflection on the water is also very pretty. To achieve the color in this image, I had to accept a small amount of white clipping in the horizon just above the mountain and some added grayness in the clouds. Both disadvantages are well worth the aesthetic luster in the highlights and the improved dynamic range of the shot as whole.
