Great breath and such a wide scope of sheer beauty. Congratulations on your 4th place.

Congrats on the 4th place. Excellent shot!

that is intense

good composition
this is obviously a photogenic spot and, as you say, you will not be the first or last to shoot this. Even the wikipedia article on Denali uses the same viewpoint

Wow, I am so excited by this placing! (and so close to a ribbon, too!) Thanks everyone for the great comments (and scores).

Have to say really quickly that I was dismayed to find out that my photo appears to be almost an exact copy of a previous winner from 2004. My challenge entry history will show that I was inactive on DPC at that time, so I had no idea that photo existed. All I can say is that I would never intentionally copy anyone's work - I simply picked the best vacation photo for this challenge topic. This photo was taken from a popular stop on the Denali park highway - I'm certainly not the first person to get a shot from this vantage, nor will I be the last, lol. :^)

Thanks again, this is incredibly exciting for me.

Perfect image for this project. You've done an excellent job of leading our gaze out to the majestic snow covered mountain. This is sure to do well.

Nice shot, great job

Very good view point. Fits the challenge perfectly. Suffers a little from the fact that it is the excact same as one of DPC challenges top shots which is better processed (//www.dpchallenge.com/image.php?IMAGE_ID=96222). Mount McKinley is to bright and to low contrast. Deacreasing levels on highlights would help alot.

lovely, i'd love to vist this exact spot.
09/20/2006 11:33:30 PM
Boy that took a lot of nerve :-) Actually copying precisely the viewpoint of one of DPC's most-favorited pictures of all time. Plus, of course. just to SEE Denali so clearly is extraordinarily rare... It's a pleasant shot, but I wish the road stood out better...

Such a beautiful scenary.... Nice picture :o)
09/20/2006 10:32:57 AM
I thought Denali was more than a mere hillock. Well, it does look lumpy but not dangerous. I expect it is the otherside everyone gets to fall down, right. Nice image, BTW. 9.

Wow! This is winner again. In Aug. 2004 a similar photo with same title won the blue ribbon. Hope you win the blue. 10

i love the clarity of the snow capped peak in the distance. it really gives a sense of the road cutting into unmarked territory.
