Photographer's Note

I took this shot about half an hour after the previous one. I should have used a tripod this late in the day (the sun was just crossing the horizon over my left shoulder).

I did more touching up on this one than I normally do, it came out really soft. I tried to sharpen just the background, since sharpening the entire thing made the scrub on the foreground hill look unnatural. The original is here.

Now that I've learned a bit more, I'm guessing I should have manually picked a larger f-stop. It was in "Landscape" mode, which is supposed to open the DOF and tinker with the colors a bit. Now we know not to trust microchips to do our thinking for us :). (especially in a low-light situation like this).

At any rate, I love the coloring on Baldy itself, that makes the shot for me.

ISO 129, focal 38mm, exp-0.7
