Quartz Mountain Lodge...

Not sure if this should be posted in the Architecture or Landscape section because this image has both.

About a month ago I made a small vacation to Quartz Mountain Nature Park in Oklahoma. Quartz mountain is known for the beautiful scenery of Lake Altus-Lugert and the surrounding granite mountains. There is a resort on the far north side of the park called The Lodge. I wanted to capture a shot of the lodge and "Twin Peaks" at sunrise. I hiked up part of the mountain so I could have a higher perspective on the lodge and be almost even (if not slightly higher) than the Twin Peaks. I was also able to get a fantastic view of the lake and mountains off in the distant horizon. This is a composite image of a blue hour (for all the lights) and the sunset. I shot a series of bracketed exposures and using various luminosity and blending masks I was able to generate what my eye was seeing. Retaining detail in the foreground was most important, but I really loved the drama of that sunrise. This is a processing technique that I have been experimenting with for some time now and I am just now starting to feel confident in the workflow. Thanks and let me know what you think!
