Amazing details and colors in your 1280x961 px one. DA's resizing don't do your pics justice. Better downsize them yourself. :-)

Beautiful work. You really brought out the detail in all the variations of geography. I'm going to favorite this photo because I'm assuming you hiked down Golden Canyon and have even more beautiful photographs to come.

Just want to point out, while you are indeed taking the photo from Zabriskie Point, the formation you have photographed is named "Manly Beacon", the top of which is believed to be remnants of lava flows over 5 million years old. :wow:

Incredible capture! How do you get the colors to pop like this?

I used four or five luminosity masks, and several selective color masks in Photoshop to tweak the contrast, colors, and dynamic range. All said and done, I think it was about a two-hour process to get it where I wanted it. If you want further instruction on this, feel free to send me a note, and I'll detail things a little more elegantly.
