Incredible, really outstanding.
Tints are just magic, and repeated frames a pure marvel. Texture of sand and wall finalizes space, bravo!

An amaizing shot. Great DOF and exposure. The texture is as if I could just reach out and touch the sand.

Freeman Patterson has a very similar shot in "Photographing the World Around You"... taken at the same place. You've done a great job emulating his style and I think I even prefer your exposure!
