    This was taken through the mountain mahogany brush with my Sony 717 while hiking in Garden of the Gods.

    Can others edit my Photos:
    Photos NOT OK to edit
    awesome shot, excellent saturation on the blues and oranges, out of curiousity, did you use a polorising filter to get the sky that blue? Or was this just on a good day :D

    thanks for sharing that drdan!

    I did use a Hoya circular polarizer. The sky was very blue anyway but not that intense. I increased the red in the color balance a little to bring out the redrock a little more. I overdid it some and ended up with a slight purple color to the sky. I liked the effect though and left it.

    Occasionally in the higher altitudes here, you can look up through a hole in the clouds and see sky that is just as intensely blue as this picture.
