Could you post some more information about the gear/settings used, and the post processing techniques applied?

Canon P&S Model A495

Used Curves and B&W filter (overlay mode) to increase contrast.

Applied Mosaic Tiles with parameters 2, 1, 8 (size, width, grout), ideally the image would be printed to coarse canvas to achieve a similar look.

Cropped & added white border.

Looks pretty cool. I"m not sure I really dig how the hillside is completely black though. Maybe you could mask out the curve layer there to show at least a little detail. Then again, I don't know if it was your intention to be black there.

Hi Clay,

Yes I intended to go almost black. Before I took the photo I saw the foreground would be best as very dark. It was more about providing an anchor to the bottom of the photo and to contrast against the peaks of the hillside that are lit by light, as well as the dramatic clouds.

Thanks for commenting.
