Wow, this is awesome. The textures are great. I also like the play of light and shadows. A top ten for sure.

This is beautiful...very nice work balancing exposure of the shadow in the first dune and the sky - that looks like it was really challenging, but you did a great job.

Well done. Portrait orientation for a landscape photo can be a dangerous choice, but it really works wonders here.

I hear Aaron Copland "The Tender Land". This is lovely.

Magnificent photography. I love this

O yes. My only criticism is, I would have cut off the top 1/4. Showing 6 layers only. Try it.

interesting take on layers

I love this layering from near to far. Nice colors and balance of the layers. I love that it is in focus where it should be.

A similar photo in the challenge, I like them both. 10 from me.

Nice shot, I feel like maybe lowering the perspective might have added something to the shot, so that the peaks were closer together visually, and we had less of the "empty" dark sand of the valleys... but the resulting shortening of your image might have been a poor compromise.

How lucky to be near sand dunes. This is gorgeous. I especially like the texture on the sand and lit edges in the foreground

Very well composed.

layers from front to back, nice melting of the horizon layers.

Great lines

The exposure control is great here. You very easily could have faded to black at the bottom, and you very easily could have faded to white at the top, but you didn't. Both areas have just enough detail to intrigue the viewer.
