This is beautiful. I disagree with the comments about a lack of subject and needing a new crop--this is excellent!

Just beautiful. Basically an abstract, with rich colors and flowing shapes. Congrats!

Ooooohhh, Ahhhhhhh!! I like it a lot, but... The horizon seems a bit too centered and the extra blue sky on the top is not adding anything else to this. Cropping about 20% off the top could work.

Nice color gradation on the sky. I don't like the horizon cutting through the middle of the photo.

Nice landscape, but I feel like I want something to by my focal point. This would make a nice desktop image however!

The simplicity is just so inviting. I'm enjoying this quiet composition...nicely seen.

I love the gentle curve of the dune. The contrast between the white sand and the perfectly blue sky is stunning.

Nice job capturing the texture of the sand

Very nice shot, indeed. My only advice would be to crop out a bit more of the blue sky so the composition isn't bisected, and perhaps use a bit faster an f-stop to increase the DOF so that clarity of the sand line extends further. Good job.

nice and simple, prefer less sky in this shot to emphasize the line 6
