Thanks - no, this is not HDR. I use GND filters to achieve better DR "more naturally" :)

Misha, congrats on the PoW. I knew you would get it the moment I saw the photo. This is one of my favorite places in the Sierra, and maybe in the whole world... and you captured it really well. Have been there myself last weekend, playing on Tresidder. On the way back I found the spot where you took the photo...
I am still in Palo Alto but I work in Berkeley, so lunch during the week will be hard. We have a better chance meeting somewehre in the Sierra!
Cheers,
Vlad.

Is it me, or do the colors seem a little different this year. Maybe the dry conditions in the Sierra? BTW, what is the difference between HDR and GND? Please excuse my ignorance (you can answer via PM, if you like)

Thanks for the comment. It was definitely drier this year than during a few previous seasons. Regarding HDR vs. GND, here is a quick explanation:
- GND stands for Graduated Neutral Density filter. Normally, it is a piece of glass that you use with your camera during the shoot to improve dynamic range. One side of these filters is darker (by 1-5 f/ stops; depends on the filter model) and another is transparent. These filters were popularized by Galen Rowell.
- HDR is a post processing (i.e. Photoshop) gimmick where you take a few photos of the same composition but expose different elements of the photo in each shot (i.e. one exposes the foreground properly; another exposes the background). Later, you take bracketed exposures of the same composition and 'blend' them for a higher dynamic range image.
Makes sense?
