Enhancing Mount Baker
Your thoughts are appreciated.
I think what you are trying to capture is something they call Alpen Glow. I can't do it but I do think the mountain ridges in the foreground could perhaps handle a wee bit more contrast. Great image. We can see Mt Baker big time from Nanaimo, Vancouver Island, BC. Check it out on a map, it's amazing!!
edit: Mmm. My post is kinda suckin..OK so do as I say not as I do..or somfun.

had a vquick play with your image.
Applied levels adj layer to up contrast, applied grad mask to limit effect to foreground.
Applied Colour Balance adj layer to add a touch of yellow/red, and masked to show only mountain area.
Vquick job, so masking may not be as good as it should, but you get the idea.
Sorry the sky's posterised on posting, (larger image did'nt have this problem).
decided to have a go at this one also.
fast fix adding more blue and red and contrast.
new raster layer
to new added clouds plugin filter and adjusted to taste.
gausian blur to clouds layer
erased clouds over blue foreground at 100% opacity
erased clouds over mountain at about 5-10% opacity, leaving a slight mist/haze.
fast fix on clouds layer to give more contrast and color. mostly added a bit more blue to it.
edit: oh, and i cropped off the bottom a bit to balance the picture.
