This is absolutely PHENOMENAL ! As an amateur, I don't know what Camera Raw is, or how to merge two completely different photos, but I would sure like to know what photo editing tools you're using.

What grabbed my eyes, then my heart was the color contrast between the sky and ice cave, being a Michigander I have seen some beautiful ice cave and just a beautiful skies and both of these rivals of color in your photo do justice to your art and good eye. The starkness of the mountains add a great divide between the two. Absolutely beautiful.

Big Four Ice Caves, Washington.
www.jasonmatias.com

I spent about an hour in the ice cave with my friend and my dog. At the back of the cave is a waterfall with a skylight (see the previous photograph) that had me befuddled as to how to capture it. As I was leaving I saw the sky softening and the pink hues on lips of the clouds. I had that feeling that this was going to be special. So, I waited and counted the cave kisses dropping on me and my camera. The next day there was a collapse in this cave and I am thankful for moments granted to me here.

Note** On December 27th, a day after I was here, an avalanche occurred in this cave.


Processing:

While I photographed a series of exposures this, like 95% of my work, is a single image. I triple processed it in Camera Raw. Once for the cave and the blues. Once for mountain and the warm light. Both of these are capture sharpened before exporting. The third time was for the sky. I soften the sky and draw all the noise out of it.
I blend the three images manually in ps and added a little more 'me' to the image.

Canon 5DII 24mm ISO100 f/11 1/3s.
