Hi Francis,
Quite right it is rather strange but well presented with the fitting frame.

Francis Xavier

This is the kind of exhibition that I like, you have found a great pov to highlight this piece of art.
The b&w works well, excellent details and contrast.

I love the tonal choice to add to the depth and texture to the sand.
Amazing concept.


Hello Francis, an amazing piece of art work made with the sand.
The b/w concentrates our eyes on the shapes and textures.
Well presented.
Tfs, regards Jean.

Very interesting sand sculptures. Nicely captured with good lighting and sharp details. Well done, tfs.

Very interesting, I think you framed this nicely. Good DOF and perspective, very different.

Hi Francis
The most original idea,that I've seen since a while.
well cropped...the sand seems so soft..


Hello Francis

I am glad I was not younger after a few beers and come across this scene. Nice angled shot with the mouths trailing off to the right. Hard to pull off a full tonal range with all that dreary gray sand. Nice in interesting.
