Desert Patterns
Description: Mesr desert is near Mesr village located in Isfahan province in Iran.
I chose the last hours of the day because of ideal angle of the light and using soft lights of the sun and interesting long shadows.
Because of that I had a short time to photograph the desert.I had chosen best locations and I knew what locations I should photograph. Soft lights on the sands in this desert scape helped me to compose the best composition. curves and Desert patterns in the desert helped those lights as well.
I usually use F/8, F/11, F/16 for my landscape shots( I'm not gonna lose sharpness) it depends on DOF and the situations the shots would have, like movements and etc, in this case I wanted
long exposure as possible as I could to capture movement dunes in the air and I had to choose smallest aperture F/32 with 0.8s SS, unfortunately when I composed this view there was no strong wind I mean it was stopped.
