incredible clearity and simplicity in this shot, yet a bit disturbing by the coiling sand lines.
very nice work!

Just looked in your portfolio and saw this shot and then noticed that we finished right next to each other in this challenge. I love this shot, very nicely done in b&w. This better be hanging on a wall somewhere! Well done!

beautiful capture of a lovely spot in the country..I like your PP and that great wide angle you used to catch the enormity of the place and that pretty sky with those clouds

I like the b/w presentation as the contour of the dunes becomes more pronounced this way and the dk sky gives focus & enhancement to the ripples is the sand..

Well done!!!!!!

Excellent image here. Great sharpness and result. However, I really much prefer these images in colour with the contrast between the sand and the sky. Still an image I would love to have in my collection. Good Luck. 8.
