    I have the RAW photo but I do not know how to host it on the web.
    I have been playing with this photo for 45 minutes and cannot seem to adjust it in a manner that helps it. I am happy with the shot, but I feel like it should be more dramatic or catching than it is.
    Any Help?

    Thanks

    Well, I took 15 minutes and ran the jpeg through Paintshop Pro just to see what I could come up with. So I took the liberty of uploading this to flickr. Some artifacts have shown up because it was a jpeg, the raw file you should get better results, as well as the fact that I wasn't taking my time; but heres what I got.

    I don't know if you like it, but what I did was adjust the vibrancy, played with whitebalance to 6000K, bumped up the green and blue channels slightly as well as applied some tonal mapping. Which is where the artifacts came from. A little too bluish in the mountains, thats the white-balance tho. The sky is overexposed a bit.

    Just what I played with, let me know if you want me to remove that photo from flickr.

    I just did a quicky: some dodge, burn, a Vibrance adjustment layer, adjusted the mid-tone contrast, black border. I spent maybe 90 seconds on it total once I got it opened in CS5.
