Great shot of the White Sands of NM. Gave you a 10, guess I should have told you that before now. Just shy.

The sky has beautiful colors that blends remarkably well. The shadows accentuates the texture in the sand. I love how the light source is visible from the top left corner, it creates a good harmony with the foreground. Solid, good luck!

the fade into the foreground to black is just perfect.

WOW, ok this is one of those shots that i wish i could give an 11 to... it is simply breathtaking.

Classical view of a desert and never fails to impress

Love the texture of the sand. This was taken at a perfect time of day to pick up the sublties in the scene.

Here's the sand dune shot I want to take someday...9

To me the desert is a very special place. It feels as though the bones of the earth are revealed. This is a really fine photograph of a sand dune making the best use of the setting sun. This is a 10 for me.

This almost looks like the Sand Dunes here in the San Luis Valley in Colorado. Very nice picture with great lighting.

simply amazing. a graduated nd filter could have helped you with the bright sky.

Very simple but very effective. 10

Very nice tones, super composition, bumping up a tad!
  Photographer found comment helpful.

They key to successful desert shots is simplicity. Although you have some lovely colours, if I was there I'd have taken out a tele lens and found a way to make the composition much more striking. There's too much happening on the horizon in this shot. The most interesting texture here is that of the sand in the foreground and I'd have made more of this.

Very nice... lots of beautiful shades and lights.

Awesome! I can´t really put my finger on what it is but I love this image, mainly it´s the texture in the sand though and the contrast/colours. Still not a 10 from me but easily a 9. Good luck in the challenge.

It doesn't look very new, it's all wrinkled. I like it, though.
