When shooting this, I had visions of combining exposures or opening shadows to show green sea oats and white dune along the bottom. In playing with a RAW file, I quickly came to the conclusion that a silhouette would look much better. Thoughts?

I really like the top 90% of this shot.
Not so sure about the bottom silhouette as the silhouetted areas at the bottom look "blocked up"

If you have another exposure that will align & blend, I would try blending the lifted bottom with the current top (90%)

Thanks, Dan. Not sure why it's doing that at the bottom; but I'm sure it's a function of my poor digital skills. Original image is fine, reduced image for upload here shows that just a little, viewing on the web looks pretty bad.

I like what you came up with here, silhouetting doesn't always work, but I think it does here.

Thanks, Jim.

I've now uploaded and deleted three different version of this; each time the blacks look muddled when view on the web. They look clean when viewed directed from my hard drive. I must be missing something obvious. Suggestions?
