woh this is cool. I love the smooth curves and where the sun is in the picture.

Daybreak would be an appropriate word for the title. Love the picture, the colors are marvelous & the use of light & shadow is great.
  Photographer found comment helpful.

This will probably just make you sad, but if this image was cropped more square and the sun JUST off to either side of the dune, you would have won. As is, I'm going to guess you're at about 6.3 to 6.7. What a great picture! The unusual crop almost never scores well on DPC. I do like it, personally. 9.

Magnificent simplicity of the curves, colour and composition....the sun directly over the peak works so well.
