"Maroon Bells with Summer Flowers" is an 8-photo HDR image that was first processed in Nik's HDR Efex Pro software from Nik Software. In addition I also used Color Efex Pro 4 to enhance the colors, and Define 2 to remove noise from the sky that was introduced in the HDR process.

Nice.. a bit oversaturated for my taste.. but great POV.

Agree with Drrach.

This shot would benefit from a little selective darkening of the shadows in the middle-ground. The tone compression makes it look just a bit flat. Having shot here, I know how tricky it is to get right.

Thanks for the comments everyone. jpodell32 - yes, a tricky area to shoot - don't agree with it being flat in middle-ground though but thanks for comments :)

Foreground, Middleground look really nice to me. Background Mountains do not look very natural to the rest of the image. Great Effort nonetheless.

The valley looks great, the mountains in the background seems as drawn.
