Photographer's Note

This photo represents an interesting problem I had with some of the pictures I took in full daylight at Cradle Mountain. It was a fantastic day, with very little cloud cover, and I tried to capture the rugged landscape with the lake and sky, without overexposing. Well, I did not overexpose too bad, but I caught the wild scrub in highly saturated colors. While they are not that far from how they looked, they do dominate and moderately flatten the background by default. I got a little flash along the skyline here, which was not helped when I had to do a slight curves adjustment to handle a bit of darkness. Otherwise, did nothing to the photo. This phenomenon occurs in many of my Cradle Mountain pics, including a few from the morning fog series.
