This was taken from the top of a sand dune. The wind creates great patterns. I turned this on an angle and cropped it a little.

I find this to be very interesting I like the contrast of the tones and patterns. I think it has a wonderful feeling and texture to it. Your dof works well and the focus seems perfect.

I really wouldn't change a thing. Congrats on the second place win.

Just an incredible shot, and one of my 10's for this challenge. I love the way you composed the shot, and the repetition of the wavy lines moves the eye all through the photo. Love the contrast of light/dark as well as small lines/large lines. Good eye, and wonderful shot!

WOW! Spectacular view point. The grains of sand put me right there. The texture is remarkable. Nice shot! 10 -danny

This just doesn't look real maybe I just don't understand it.

Very cool!! Was this taken on a desert? Maybe the moon?

Oh Man, the competition is rough. The right side shows oversharpening to me, I might be wrong though. Very nice job! 8
