just trying to find the top to all these great comments! thanks again and again!

Great shot, love the comp- but watch the saturation a bit - its artifacting (clipping out) pretty bad throughout the purples. I imagine it wouldn't be noticeable at a smaller size - but here it is definitely visible.

Wonderful shot. Didn't vote on this challenge but now realize I must go through the entries to enjoy the "titles" and images too, yours is right up there with "it's just around the next bend". Congratulations on your first ribbon, blue is such a nice color ;)

ha lol i love it, i love how the sky draws you to that mountain in the distance, the colors are awsome, and the natural lighting rocks. giving this a 9.

Well composed and terrific colours

great idea, great shot. I don't love the saturation in the upper right though.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
12/02/2006 01:55:22 PM
Awesome pic. I really like the colors in the sky and the mountains on the horizon.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
12/02/2006 12:45:47 PM
Great colors. I love the texture of the sand.

nice colours here

Amazing place. Lovely image. Appropriate last words. The horizon could be straightened just a tad.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
12/01/2006 09:24:35 AM
Very pretty and the symbolism works well for the words. 8.

Gorgeous colours... some of the clouds at the top of the frame are looking a bit funky though. 5

Great shot...love the color...and very true
  Photographer found comment helpful.
11/30/2006 08:00:51 PM
Nice shot, love all the texture in the sky and sand. Would be better if the horizon were level, and it's too bad about the noise in the magenta section of the sky.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
11/30/2006 07:36:58 PM
Wow, this is amazing and spooky. I'm seeing some weird pixelation in the magenta cast upper quarter, but I love how the sand pattern matches the cloud. One other comment, full lenght of the shadow might have been nice too. All in all, great shot

Looks like Utah. Good one. Love the colours in the sky.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
11/29/2006 05:54:15 PM
Very good image, a little overprocessed for my particular taste, but it's OK if that's what you were looking for...
What I defenitely recommend is to have the horizon line leveled, though.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
11/29/2006 05:14:34 PM
This is fantastic. Great coloring and dof.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
11/29/2006 01:35:22 PM
Lovely shot. The sky is a bit odd in the top right, bit I suspect that's just jpeg artifacts. Great light on the sand and the mountains in the distance.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
11/29/2006 01:11:07 PM
Good picture. Beautiful sky.
And I especially like the orientation of the light. (Good shadow effect!)
  Photographer found comment helpful.
11/29/2006 02:47:51 AM
Very nice - I know you can't control the sun but if your shadow was going off into the distance it would enhance the concept more - as it is it only emphasises the off-level horizon
  Photographer found comment helpful.
11/29/2006 02:42:22 AM
beautiful and appropriate 9
  Photographer found comment helpful.
11/29/2006 12:52:39 AM
I like the positioning but don't like the colors. It needs richer colors, not pastels.
