Couple more images from my trip. These two were shot a few minutes apart (time to shoot the image and at lease 3 minutes to process the polaroid type 52.) In that time the light shifted significantly. Am debating whether to combine the two in photoshop. The one with the beautiful light rays on the big rock is too dark on the outlying areas but the other is exposed fine but the shadows and light on the big rock are different and not as dramatic in my opinion. What do you all think?

You know, I for one just don't have a problem working some PS darkroom magic. I'll bet Blend mode would yield a completely new image.

I think that once you've commited an image to film or paper, the use of PhotoShop to help bring it to where you want it to be is OK. It's just a tool that we have to work with. So I say go for it and experiment.
