Challenge: The Eleventh Commandment (Expert Editing)

I had a lot of fun finding this area, but I really wish I would have taken a little more time with this. When I saw the latest Star Wars trailer, I realized that I knew the exact spot where the opening scene was filmed. It was a 4-hour drive to the Liwa dunes, so I went there, and took a toy Star Destroyer model with me.

I took these shots on the last day before the challenge was up, and I'm a little upset with myself for not producing something better. Still, I was really excited to see that I wasn't nuts and found the right spot, and I'm glad to get an HM out of this. My angle isn't perfect, but you can tell this is probably the exact spot this shot was taken:
