Photo of the Day: "Zenith Cloud"

Nikon D90, Nikkor 18-135, 22mm, f8, 1/800 sec., ISO 200. Landscape scene mode, -1/3EV exposure compensation, aperture priority and Kelvin white balance (4950K 5G). Raw (.NEF).

Today is the final shot, probably, from the Highway in the Sky series. Post processing was not intended to capture what the scene looked like, as I tried in the other shots of this series. Sometimes you're not communicating a scene, but an idea.

Post processing included a crop and straighten and color work, mostly. Perhaps I should have added a little additional vignetting (i.e., darkened corners). Perhaps. Original below.
