Moon Over Mount Shuksan

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.
