[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Taken yesterday in the mid afternoon, it was hot (43deg C). This is where some of the Bahraini lads have been playing with their 4WD vehicles. I apologise in advance for the flaws in the middle and top left of the picture caused by dirt on my CCD sensor, I have not yet learned how to clone this out with PS, any tips welcomed. I have tried to clean the sensor today using the inbuilt Pentax function and it has worked for the top left flaws but not for the "blob" in the middles just to the left of the tracks. Advice, critiques welcomed as always.
Best regards to all, Les

Hello Les!
I like this kind of pictures very much!
To remove these dust spots I use PS CS2; it's very easy.
Better is it to remove the dust from your sensor; herefore I use the Arctic Butterfly (see: www.visibledust.com)

In WS I try to remove the dust spots.

Greetings from Netherland,

Lubie zdjecia z pustynnym krajobrazem. Spokojnosc przestrzeni przecieta sladami samochodow.

hi Dad,

Great shot, but it is a shame about the tracks going off to left I think they are a little distracting.


Hi Les,

I like this shot. For one, the concept is appealing: tracks in a trackless place.
Interesting textures and I think there is some blue in the bottom of the tracks.

Bluepianowaits may have a point about the tracks on the left.

All the best!
