My guess is at least 2 exposures merged....splendid image..I'd love to be pan frying some trout while witnessing this sunset.

That's just gorgeous, however you accomplished it. The composition is simple but the forms and colors, the lights and shadows, make it jump out at us. Hope you printed this one!

Thanks Psjunkie, You are correct two images with a lot a f-stop differences. You PP them differently in LR and then open together in PS as layers and with the Mountains on the top. Then slowly paint black over the over exposed sky and let the correctly exposed sky through and then a little tweaking here and there. It gives a little bit of a cut out look and I am working on some ideas to soften that part of the image. If you have a extra trout please call and I will bring the beer.

Thanks minnie, I hated PP early on as I slowly realized that PP is a tool and when learned correctly the results are nothing short of amazing. There is a lot pain in learning and many images just get flushed down the drain but just remember one is never too old the learn new tricks.

This gives me encouragement to keep struggling with PS. Thanks. The image is enchanting. Room for another at the fish fry? Matt

When you get that ranch just make sure there is a view so I can come over and discuss sunset shooting with you.

Matt, I studied YouTube videos till my eyes burned. I would find a images an practiced till to became second nature. Trout and beer over a open fire in the cold night air on the banks of the Snake river sounds yummy.

Thanks WingShooter. YouTube videos it will be. I have bought Scott Kelby's 2017 release on PSCC and will use that as well. I learn better from a book than a video. Matt
