This is 3 exposures blended together using my advanced Photoshop tonality control and multiple exposure blending techniques. I produced a video detailing these techniques, it's available here: www.zschnepf.com

This is an icon for a reason. I stopped by Bryce on my way further south and I'm glad I did. I explored every inch of hiking trials within Bryce over 2 days , it was actually a lot of hiking and a ton of fun. This was a really tricky exposure. Even using my advanced exposure blending techniques it was still a challenge. I'll probably fiddle with it a little more before I print it. This image also suffers when it get's converted to sRGB, the smaller color space loses a lot of detail in the red highlights. I had to desaturate it to get the detail to show up again, but it suffers from the conversion still.
