IRL, the mountains were a dark blueish gray befit to twilight, and the spindrift coming off the top looked like it was positively on fire. Might have been flames for all I could tell. I can't quite manage to reproduce that without something being off.

I'd do it sort of like this, and emphasize the warm/cold, light/dark dynamic... not perfect, but you get the idea:

BTW, how'd you get a screen cap of your adjustments? Not the cap itself, but the short list like that?

and I would have stepped to your left, or onto the knob on PK where they do easter sunrise service to get a better shot of slushman's but that's just me. ;)
cool to see that lift though, beyond bridger's advertising, this is probably the first shots of it I've seen?

In LR3, in develop mode, on the left hand side under presets is a history drop down.

This wasn't really a planned shot. Taken while skiing down from the fingers right where last chance drops off from the PK catwalk. It was cold and the snow wasn't getting any softer. In retrospect I would I have liked to have time to setup a tripod and get my settings right.

nice. As for the processing I think Eric's got it. I love the HARD line ray coming off. That snow is the reason why bridger is so epic days after a storm. Not particularly safe, but that wind loading makes for epic stashes up high. :)

I miss Bridger so ****ing much though, you're helping and hurting because it's soooooo familiar. :)
