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.

Beautiful capture! What focal length would this translate to on your typical DSLR?

That depends on what you mean when you say, "typical DSLR." APS-C (Nikon/Canon)? Full-frame comparison? Full frame is something like .65x the focal length of MF, as I recall.

I was just curios to put in in a frame of reference... I shoot Nikon DX format, which is not full frame. I would imagine this to be a 35 mm shot or so for my camera I guess. Either way, beautiful shot!

DX is 1.5x FF, which is something to the effect of .65x MF. Thus, you have (115*.65)/(1.5), which equals ~50mm. It's crazy to me just how different the fields-of-view are, though.

Thanks for stopping by, man. You have a great gallery, btw.
