This is a shot of Blanca Peak and Ellingwood Point after a snowstorm. It’s a 3-exposure HDR image (+/-1 EV) blended and tone mapped in Photomatix.
After blending I made basic adjustments and applied a gradient to the sky with the Camera Raw filter. In Photoshop I added black & white and curves adjustment layers. I selected the mountains and added an exposure adjustment layer to them. I then cropped.
