This is a single image capture. I tonemapped the sky and shadows but erased the effect on the arch and foreground. Then ran shadows/hihglights on the arch and foreground. Then just few color adjustment layers.
Held on to this one since April! Very Happy with the finish. :)

Congrats on your high finish, Joe! This was definitely a fav of mine, an exceptional capture. I'm not familiar with this landmark but I think I caught a glimpse of it in a commercial recently. Excellent choice of subject!

I gave this an 8. Beautiful warm light and colors. Just a more refined crop, but fairly minor. I'm sure this size doesn't do this justice.

GREAT finish and a utterly fantastic image, Joe! Is this the arch that subsequently fell? You didn't push it, did you??
CONGRATS.

glorious light throughout - especially as it creeps over the rocks near the horizon

vibrant red colours, nicely sharpened, nice DOF, Lovely leading lines to the arch, I would have actually cropped the sun out as it does distract from the Arch. well done

Very dramatic composition. All of the elements work very well in this capture. Definitely worth a 9.

Beautifully done! I was surprised to see the sun in that particular position... I'm pretty sure it was setting a bit further to the right of that position when I visited there this summer. I like the feeling of desolation, even knowing that there were probably dozens of other people crowded around you when you shot it!

I really like this POV. I don't think I've ever seen it from this side, looking west.
