Mid-May Snow Storm in Yosemite Valley
I love Yosemite Valley with a dusting of snow after a storm in May, when you get elements of Winter and Spring mixed, as well as clouds and mist from a breaking storm. The composition isn't exactly what I'd want: while I like the branch in the sky echoing the grass int eh foreground, I don't like the pine needles hanging in front of Cathedral Rock, and the branch moved a bit, so while I prefer the HDR processing for the rest of the photo, trying to substitute in the branch from a single exposure is probably more trouble than it's worth.
There was a small issue when I exposed it... it was raining lightly, and a couple of drops of water landed on the lens, creating a couple of spots of rainbow-colored diffracted light on the trees on the right side. Again, it could be dealt with, but a simple spot removal cursor doesn't quite cut it, so for the moment it would take more trouble than it's worth. So while the shot looks pretty good at low resolution, remains an outtake at higher resolution until it gets more work. Perhaps some future post-processing software will automate the required edits.
