I woke up just before sunrise on my first day in Zermatt, Switzerland so I could venture out and capture a gorgeous sunrise photo of The Matterhorn. As I was walking around, I passed by this area and heard the Matterhorn yelling "Take this photo!". I listened to the Mr. Mountain and took the shot. :) Hope you enjoy it!

The object of the photo is the peak and is well that it is highlighted. But precisely HDR is to harness the dynamic range for more details of dark areas.

Amazing view. Very real looking. Nice job.

Very subtle HDR effect here, but it's a nice shot ;o)

The only time I've been in Zermatt I saw the Matterhorn for a total of 30 seconds! Nice capture

I love the POV. A lot of contrast here between the peak and the rest of the image.
