Wonderful shot, full of the vastness of the desert and really captures the scale of the landscape compared the humans in the foreground. The position of the figures - with the rope from the camel leads my eye off to the left and not back into the frame. I love the textures and colors.

Neat photo and good idea. I wish everything were more in focus though. I would love to see detail on the rock since that takes up so much of the frame.

Alone except for the guy with the leash on that pony. Errr, I mean that CAMEL. A great shot, with an almost-perfect title! ;)

Wow...very impressive. Distance I guess is why it's a little soft, but the sheer scope is amazing. Great composition.

I think this photo best captured the intent of the challenge, by comparing how small the people and camel are to how vast the desert is. The framing heightens this idea with mot of the shot being desert. My only critique of this picture are the purple-ish cast and that the people are out of focus. I do understand that it's possible that the people and camel are effected by heat distortion, however.

not really alone

I can feel the vastness. How did the photo look w/ them walking into the photo?

nice destination!

Nice composition - well executed idea.

Beautiful use of proportion to place the subjects. Would be nice if the people and camel had a crisper focus--perhaps this is a remant of the distance to lens? Color is unbelievable! Very poster-like. Luck!

One this I enjoyed when visiting Jordan and going to the Wadi Rum (Laurance of Arabia site) was that you could see the all the stages of mountains deteriorting into sand, very impressive.
