The table mountain Heršubreiš in the Highlands of Iceland is seen on a stormy afternoon.  For details and more images in the series, see this.

Rajan, the mountain is spectacular but I think there's too much rather uninteresting foreground. I assume there's more detail in the low range to the right (which looks very black on my monitor) than is visible in the jpeg.

I too gravitated to the upper 2/3 right golden median...would have so much like to have seen all that information framed full (did not say cropped this one) so that all that glorious detail and positive /negative rhythm could sing in the image.  That being said, and the shot made...was it a large enough raw file that yo could isolating that area to see what you have...my moniter shows some detail in the darks

I agree about the foreground, and lightening the foothills on the right.  The mountain itself looks interesting... like something blew the top off.

Jeremy,

The mountain was photographed from quite some distance.  While the foreground, per se, is uninteresting it provides context of the desert surrounding the mountain.

Yes, there's detail in the blacks.  The darkest it gets is L=3 (in L*a*b space) and much of it is a good deal more than that.

Fixed now.  Thanks for pointing it out.

Rajan...I wish I had copied your original to my desktop...this crop has pulled vitality out of the image ...would be nice to see them side by side... I went to your link...the originals in color have so much mor to work with than one would have imagined from your first submitted conversion...

I would say that you have the material for a very nice conversion, more of the frame kept, and also a very subtle color sensitiely rendered would be very nice...the context you had in the original disappeared in the first conversion, but it sure seems woth the time to enjoy working with this awhile...I like the goods available for use in the original...what a beautiful locale...
