Weird perspective that throws you off guard. Good idea to put the right bank horizontal. You achieved a nice graphical image with the segmented sky and the dynamics of the slope through the shot.
Very original dune-shot. Good one!

hi david this photo really amazed me why?
1. you made my head tilt (what an angle hehehe)
2. the color of the sand its just an amazing blend between sand and sky..
3. the shadows of the dune at the other side...just perfect blend
4. the people and the detail of their footprints
just simple as that!!!

I like the diagonal placement of the huge sanddune in this picture where the well metered blue sky horizon adds great geometry and charm into the shot!
The colors are very natural and the clarity is superb. The wind adds mood into the shot. The people bring a great sense of scale.
A exceptional composition with nice informative details and thanks for a short note.

This is an exceptional shot!
I'm amazed that it has been in your archive rather than posted!
With eyes slightly out of focus, one could imagine this as a flag, the different areas are so clearly defined, so well composed!
You pov has great impact on the viewer, there is a concious effort to orientate oneself.
The little details of the sand blowing off the edge of the dune, the long shadows and the footprints, all add interest to the shot.
Have a good day,

This really made me scratch my head ... and stare for a long time. I'm still not sure I've got it figured out:)
In any case, it's a great diagonal composition, and diagonal disection of the shot .. love the light, long shadows and warm colors of the sand. The people on the ridgeline add a good sense of scale. I can only imagine how tough it must be to climb.
Great (perplexing) shot :)

I like the unusual POV and the diagonal framing, it kind of throws the viewer for a loop. It's hard to get one's bearings. For some reason, seeing the people and line of footprints reminds me of how we view ants. I guess in the universal scheme of things that's all we are anyway.

Simply amazing POV and accurate metering of this tricky scene! Love the diagonal compo and the depth in this 3D like image- wonderful work and TFS!
By experiment, I know how the trecking on the dune is harsh! Nothing is more unstable than having sand until ankles.
The composition is well done with this great diagonal. Luminous colors. You did a good work with light...not easy to capture it in these conditions. Just an picky observation. I thought the image could be initially in a vertical format. The pose of the climbers would seem more natural in this format. Could it be that you did is a horizontal flip and added the strip of blue sky. Just an idea!
Otherwise, this is a stunning image. Annie
