Hello Claude :)

Very interesting sculpture of the camel head.
The pretty composition in pastel colours and gentle light.
I like him!

My best wishes.

Hi Claude

While you spotted a good subject, I do think the execution of this shot could have been better. For example, it's crying out for a narrower depth of field. Perhaps you could have opened your aperture up from f/11 to something like f/2.8? Certainly you could then have dropped your ISO to 100 and still had a good quick shutter. That way, the sand sculpture would have been nicely in focus while the background was suitably blurred.
