This picture was shot on a tripod with three exposures (-2..0..+2EV). I used Photomatix to create the HDR with tone mapping and detail enhanced. I increased the overall saturation with Hue/Saturation in Photoshop. 1 layer mask to increase color and contrast in the sunrise sky. Curve adjustment to increase the overall contrast. Some dodging and burning to bring out details. Used Nik Sharpener Pro to sharpen image.

Classic view of the Columbia River and Vista House on Crown Point from Portland Women’s Forum State Scenic Viewpoint at sunrise. Presented in full HDR!
