The attached image is called "Banned in Gig Harbor" because the Gig Harbor City Council required the
Peninsula Art League to delete the image from their juried show at the gallery located in the Gig Harbor City Hall
It is now showing at an alternate gallery in Gig Harbor.

It was photographed in my studio with a Canon EOS 5D and printed with little manipulation on my Epson
Stylus Pro 4800 purchased from JVH several years ago.   No special finishing techniques.

General Info:
This is an image that is impossible to capture in one shot.  If you expose for the rock formation the sky goes
almost white and the foreground foliage is in deep shadow.  This is my first HDR attempt combining 3 rather
ho-hum images exposed for different areas of the scene.
