Overexposed slightly, intentionally to give the bright hot feel of a desert

Too white on the forehead. Interesting picture, but try a smaller aperture (larger number) to throw the BG out of focus (if your cam allows this).

Is this Larry himself? Nice point of view and expression on the camel. Light seems a bit harsh, especially on the face and head.

Good idea. The contrast is too strong though, between the shadow and light.

THe lighting is a little harsh on this guys face up on top of his head and between his eyes. Your focus and clarity are good though, and I like the closeness of the shot as well. I think that the angle and framing/cropping are good. Nice close up. ~Heather~

A camel's head does not an epic make.

My voting criteria for this challenge are:

1. Did you capture a scene from the movie (as the challenge brief states) or did you enter a picture and fit a title to it.
2. How close a rendition is your image to the movie.
3. How does the image stand up in its own right.

In this case:

1. OK it's a camel and there were camels in the film, however I feel that you could have picked any arabian set film and claimed a fit.
2. NA.
3. As animal pictures go not the best. The over-exposure on the head is really distracting and the body lacks definition.
