Shot RAW. Converted in Photomatix.

Opened in PSCS3, adjusted curves/colours, contrast, ran through Variations. I did a fair bit of small adjustements, bit didn't write them down.

Then I cropped, and cloned out imperfections.

Resized, sharpened overall, then sharpened with the brush, added 1 px black border. Saved as JPG.

When I see a thumbnail in a thread which I am instantly attracted to, it`s invariably got "Ursula" written under the title. :)

You are an inspiration !

Oh my god, that's stunning! I love the smooth curves, the colours, the beautiful diagonal, really everything about this picture. The one objection would be that the edge of the sand dune looks a bit pixelated, but that's not your fault, that's the file size+resolution limit at work...

Actually, I'm adding this to my faves, I think it's beautiful.

Good composition, the focus bothers me some, would have liked this all where everything appeared really sharp.

The more I look, the more I like this. You've captured something different from a bog standard orange/yellow dune with cobalt blue sky (stunning though they are) Well done!

The Title fits perfectly, nice leading lines.

Right then, joke's on me as I now have to plough through 564 images and bump them all (yes, all of them) up. There'll be a third run through for fine tuning. It's day two now and I'm running late, sorry.

What an awesome photograph. Generally you see pictures of dunes without any prints in them. This is very unique.
