I am posting this in the photo art section as I really worked the colors in Lightroom.  If it is in the wrong place, moderators please move to where it belongs. This is a 5 vertical image pano using a medium telephoto lens. Using targeted adjustments in Lightroom I greatly accentuated color and changed the color balance in the clouds and used a lot of dehaze to enhance mid-range contrast.

Hi Ed
I think it is appropriate here, and you did a beautiful job of enhancing the colors-I like the glowing sun and the glow lower in the mountains. You've brought out the magic in this magnificent place.

Great job, Ed. Love the layers, from the foreground water to the clouds over the mountains. And the yellow color in the clouds, contrasted against the beautiful blues in the mountains, makes the image for me. A beautiful and powerful landscape image.

There is something very powerful about this finished work, Ed. I love the overall mood and effects - and in particular the light on the landscape and the fluidity of the 'washed' sky. Fantastic artwork that would be stunning as a large print - and definitely with a dark surround!
