With this image I used a graduated filter to make the mountain and countryside darker than captured. The clouds seem to billow out of the top of the mountain.
A filter was used to enhance the contrast in the clouds as well.
What it might have looked like in 1895. I obliterated the town of Cochrane with the Photoshop Clone Tool. Left the roadway in place. I imagine it could be the CPR rail line. Panorama stitched from two images.

Due to access problems I could not make it to the Man with a Vision so here is my photo from the bottom. I was using my OMD EM5 with a polarizing filter that gives the darker sky and also using the sunset mode in the scene preset giving the warmer colours.

Beautiful colours Dwight. I like the composition.
thanks, I was wondering if I should clone out the fence post
Going for drama. I liked the tiny bits of reflection on the edge of the statue. (They show up much better in the high-rez pic.)

I liked the rich colours and textures and the red jacket.

Red really stands out. Beautiful rich colours in the late afternoon.
The meadow neat the bridge at the entrance to Cochrane Ranche.

Watching our Photo Group wander the Cochrane Ranche site and capture the changing light conditions were these “3 Deer on the Hill” in silhouette against the afternoon sky. Fujifilm XH-1 @ 128mm; ISO 100; F 5.6; SS of 1/80 second.

I liked the effect of the two flat rock surfaces. I tried to crop so there was 1/3 land and 2/3 sky, and also the other way around, but didn’t like it. I guess this is the “1/2 rule”?

I was trying to get sunlight burst on the rider. The photo is cropped, and the horizon straightened. I was trying lighten the horse to give it some definition but to darken the sun so the rider’s head was not flashed out, and still keep the clouds and sky OK. I played around in Photoshop Elements with haze removal, Shadows/Highlights, and Levels. It was fun trying!

I’ll also post the original for comparison.
