The first rays of sunlight hit the granite spires of the Teton Range. I'd been thinking about a revisit to this particular sunrise shoot in Grand Teton National Park because I'd never really been ecstatic with my hdr results. I decided to process one of the single exposures and realized right away that I need to do this more often. It was the light that first hit the peak that was the star of the morning so I picked the exposure that was captured at a -1.7 EV because of the contrast. The D300 I was using sure doesn't control noise the way my D700 does so there was a little noise reduction needed in the sky but overall the image came out the way I remembered, and envisioned, the scene.
