    Excellent detail. What did you use?

    Just saw your b&w version. nex 7 & tamron 18-200. The amount of detail the nex7 captures is amazing.

    Thanks for the comment. Used NEX-7 with 18-200 Tamron. Post with HDR Efex 2.

    Thanks, but I am not happy with the sky and glow caused by the single HDR. I need to learn how to solve this with my recently acquired Lightroom.

    I was wondering about that sky glow too. At first glance it looks like a 'dodge tool' got dragged across the peak outline. Then I thought maybe it was just a freak thin cloud formation. I didn't pick-up that this was HDR...

    It's HDR raising the luminosity in the sky to make a transition. HDR settings usually have a slider to control/limit the amount of "glow".

    In Photoshop, I have an "Edge Glow" section with sliders for both Radius and Strength - I usually turn the radius way down.
