I know, the headline is evil and misleading. :-) I've been working on some post-processing of the pictures we took on the trip, which involves a bit of learning how to manipulate .CR2 files and bracketed images to correct exposure settings.

Death Valley at Sunrise:
(This is a blended HDR image from three bracketed shots IMG_6887, IMG_6888, IMG_6889) on a tripod at various exposure levels.
This is a modified single CR2 image with Fill Light added, the Black level tweaked slightly, and some other modifications in Aperture. I think it's a little bit too washed out still, so I may try working on this one some more. The original is a bit too dark, so... compromises, I guess.
