Challenge: Hidden Gem: DPL Season 3 (Advanced Editing VII)
Collection: Portfolio
Camera: Nikon D800
Lens: Nikon AF-S Nikkor 70-200mm f/2.8G ED VR II
Location: Liwa, UAE
Date: Jun 15, 2015
Aperture: f/11
ISO: 100
Shutter: 1/50
Date Uploaded: Aug 21, 2015

My good friend Nick taking shots in the Liwa dunes. We both have drones, so we went up there primarily to use them, but I got a nice mix of shots from both my drone and my DSLR that day.

I had to plan this trip 2 days in advance, and I was hoping that the announced challenge would somehow fit with a shot of desert or sand somehow, especially since DPL was going on. It turned out to be 'Feathers', which didn't help in any way. It was still a great shoot, and now I'm glad I got to use at least one of these shots on DPC :)

Thanks so much for the great votes and comments! There were some amazing photos in this challenge, and even with a 7+ score I wasn't really expecting to pull down the blue :)

You got a stunning shot! Did you process the image with some special treatment? I really love the slightly unreal atmosphere.

Love the forms, tones and textures. The person gives the image 'personality'.10

Brings up all kinds of thoughts of the myriad little ways we spoil the beauty in the world, and at the same time, the capture is sublime.

that's amazing.

this is very challenging. I am tempted to say that the photographer and his traces ruin a nice sweep and etch of dunes, but in fact he reels us in by his ordinary, banal presence. and are we not tired, after all, of perfect, cool unblemished abstract sweeps of stuff?
