Mystic Waters of Shangri La by michaelanderson Mystic Waters of Shangri La by michaelanderson
The secret valley of Shangri La, an unknown mountain paradise hidden in the vast borderlands of Tibet.

This is a single image that I had to double process in RAW to get the detail in the shadows. It's an older image and if I were to shoot this today, I would get different exposures and blend them rather than double process a single image.

Breathtaking. Great colours in the stream and the sky, and about the right amount of darkness for me, too. I like the stream as a lead-in to the valley - very effective.

It's very good the way you did it ;) I have 2-3 attempts for double processing, only one were successful, but it was extraordinarily case. Otherwise I use bracketing - the easiest way :)
