To the best of my knowledge, this mountain is called Croagh Patrick. Walked a few kilometres out of Westport (Ireland) to capture this shot.
In camera, it did not look all that great. To give you an idea, take a look at the slides I put together in my scraps: [link]
3 bracketed exposures at 0.5, 1/6, and 1.6 seconds. First thing, white balance was off, way too much of a blue cast, but luckily I always shoot RAW so I could easily fix this in the RAW PS interface.
Then I had exposure issues, no one image I felt could provide enough tonal range, so I merged the 3 and tweaked the colours further until I came up with this.
As with other recent pieces, this is still experimental for me because I am not quite used to shooting in almost fully overcast weather... I find it requires a lot more attention to detail in HDR processing, but at least it's a good learning experience, and I'm more than happy to share this piece as stock in the process
