    I'm always amazed by the ripples in dunes, and then utterly amazed at the way light and shadows play on them. This is a gorgeous example!

Hi Debra,

Terrific finalist! You just captured the Oceano at eh right time and lighting creating those fantastic sidelights. The composition is impeccable putting the area of shadow at the upper left.

The details is outstanding and I can see in the color version that the color rendition is just as great. Is this how the D700 performs so well?

But I like this B&W conversion just as well, has greater impact to me. Congratulations!

Best regards, Lester
