Hi from the CC Club,

Another gorgeous shot of the slots. You can never really go wrong with these shots.

You did really well with this shot, very crisp, very clean. I especially like the fact that you can hardly see any footsteps in the sand.

The only problem with the slots is that at some point you are going to encounter daylight. You have managed teh daylight fairly well here. there is no way around it being blown out.

It is a little over sharpened, I know that the walls are made from sand and do tend to look on photos as though they are sharpened a lot as there appears to he halos on the edges, but I think you could have stepped back a bit on this one.

In Post Processing , play with the hue and saturation and selective colours. Mainly because you will find that there are hidden colours in those walls. Mainly purples believe it or not.

Great photo and they look amazing blown up and hung up on the wall. Well done

A very nice look at a very hackneyed subject.
