[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
The Red Sand and the pinnacle on the background, about 9 kms. from Dafirat Nisah in Riyadh,is one the places to see in the central region of Saudi Arabia. This region is mainly rocky plateau interspersed by small, sandy deserts and isolated mountain clumps.

I like this composition & colors, good POV, well done Alfredo.


Hi Alfredo!
What majestic and strong picture!
A fine composition and prospect!
Color of sand, its structure and sandy wind – it is really uncomfortable place …
I have tried to strengthen rocks saturation in Ws
I hope, it acceptable “invasion”?

Thanks for sharing,

Hello Alfredo.

great composition for this landscape with the rock in the background in the ringht place.
nice colors too.



Hello Alfredo,
Eye-catching composition for a photo that gives a real impression of heat. I'm not a fan of "oversaturation", but I agree with Natalia, who did a "useful" workshop IMO.
TFS & kind regards,

Hi Alfredo and welcome to TL. I think for the time of day you took this shot the colours came out very well. Well composed with the pinnacle to the side and lovely textures in the sand. I would love to see another taken earlier in the morning or later in the afternoon. TFS,

Many thanks for your comment on ‘Happy Birthday Tricia’
