Marie suggest this shot. I noticed that we could see Four Peaks in the right-most windows, so adjusted the tripod’s height and location to see as much of the that reflection as possible.
It was an interesting exercise to account for the white balance in the shade of the patio in contrast with the sunny area on the grass. I had Marie hold up a gray card in both locations and then blended separately processed layers for each area. I processed each exposure a second time to show patio detail and darken the sky. So, in summary, I used two exposures, processing each one twice to compose this photo.
