Initially conceived as a 3-exposure HDR photograph, I ended up taking the middle “correct” exposure and converting the image into a monochrome composition in SEP2.

The only major issue with the elements in this photo is the little rock wedged between the larger rocks in the top right quadrant. It is one of those things that either did not bother me when I took the shot or I did not notice it. Sure, I could remove it in post, but I would rather treat it as a lesson learned to pay attention to the entire composition, whether it is the background or a little rock that “photo bombs” your shot!
