Moon Over Mount Shuksan, 1994. North Cascades
National Park, Washington
This is one of my favorite areas to visit and
photograph, simply because of the astounding beauty and wilderness
here. I rate the area a "Zone 10"! A thin layer of
clouds slightly shrouded the moon, making the sky fairly bright
in relation to the rest of the subject and reducing the intensity
of the moon itself. The sky area of this print requires substantial
burning, and the use of a moderate contrast
reduction mask followed by a shadow
contrast increase mask helps to control the values in general,
allowing detail to be preserved in the dark areas of the image
while increasing the effectiveness of burning the sky without
affecting the nearby values of Mount Shuksan to a serious degree.
Some minor bleaching with my print-brightener
formula enhances the contrast within the snow on the mountain.
