I really do like this scene, E.J., but like a good number of the great landscape shots I come across these days, it's a bit HDR - no true black to be found anywhere. It's perhaps technically well executed, but it just doesn't look right to me. But what do I know!
Regards,

Des

Single frame no HDR.! You are seeing the incredible dynamic range in today's sensors. Specifically sensors not made by Canon which has much more restrictive Dmax across the board record way more shadow detail.  Modern sensors much more closely reflects human vision (although still about 8 stops shy of that) instead of the slide film like contrast and lack of shadow detail that many of us grew up on.
