You did a great jod bringing out the texture of the patterns on the dunes, nice shadows as well as an oustanding composition. #1465569

All your Dunes photos are great.

I do agree with Arthur in this one the patterned textures, the light and shadows and the composition
makes this one outstanding

Your other one is as great

Thank you, David.

The dunes were a paradise of line, texture, shape, pattern... The downside: dust! Dust in my camera and in every crevice on the exterior of my camera bag. #10157017

Not only do you have my heartiest congratz for the EP and Second Place awards but this wonderful sandy image is a winner to me as well. 8-)

I'm a sucker for a good dune shot but I am over the moon with the excellence of this production. Terrific lines, contrast, ripples,depth, clarity, light, tones and point of view.
