I score 5 out of 5 - well done son!!!

How did you do this?
I'm guessing it was desaturated with a bit of blue hue added, but I can't work out how the sky ended so dark

what about the face in the top of the ridge.. fantastic

How did I do it....
I under exposed by 1 stop, then just adjusted the contrast slightly.
Not sure what desaturation is and I didn't add any blue.
The "black sky" is actual the mountains in shadow in the background, hence with the under exposure they have gone all together.

wow, so this is pretty much as it came out of the camera?
Desaturation is removing all saturation from an image, ie turning it to black + white
pottsworth - 02/Sep/08Report
Yes, pretty much like this, just a tweek on the contrast.
Desaturation....hmmm...I'll have to take a look at that.
