This was taken at Palo Duro Canyon State Park in Texas. I processed this by basically dividing the image into several regions and playing around with the curves in photoshop until I liked how each region looked. The sky was one region, and I divided the rocks into three or four regions. Even though this may look like HDR to some people, it isn't. This all came from one raw file. I didn't use any downloaded plugins, filters, or actions. It was just a lot of tweaking.
