Nice! A personal best and my first red. It was a long week score started at 6.8 and climbed up to 7.2. The shot was accomplished near the place where I live with a ND filter to allow a long exposure. Thanks for all the votes, comments and nice words.

excellent depth and angle in this shot! I want to run across that sand to see what's on the other side of that hill.

Stunning example of composition and theme. The b&w conversion was right one the money for this one. One I surely would have been proud to call my own.

I love the B/W conversion on this.

Nice. A touch or two overwrought maybe, but just look at Ansel Adams! Sharpening seems a wee bit hamfisted along the highest-contrast edges, but I'm probably not in a position to lecture anyone about that. This will be popular, but I rather like it anyway. 7.

Great composition. 9.

Great fisheye distortion. Really draws the eye to the center - but unfortunately not to the "sand", which is almost an incidental element here. Powerful, but not as "sandy" as some of the other submissions.

Dramatic sky and processing. Love that fallen fence.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
01/05/2009 04:44:18 AM
a good sky makes all the difference.
There are 5 or 6 contenders for top spot - this is one
Nice title as well!
