Nice Composition..

I think this need additional visual focus, an object in the sand perhaps, the colors are great and I feel it would be a good backdrop for something.

Lovely scenery.
03/17/2009 04:42:25 AM
nice lacks that little bit of punch to

Looks almost like arctic tundra... never would have thought this was a dessert.
03/16/2009 01:50:50 PM
huh, i thought that was snow:/

It looks like a good time of day with the long shadows on the grass tufts. I don't really like the cut-off white sand dune. I'd prefer an angle showing more of the dune, or maybe just square it off with more to the left.
03/16/2009 03:10:20 AM
Well captured and presented.
03/15/2009 10:32:09 AM
not too much interest or wow in the shot.
03/15/2009 10:21:04 AM
Nice contrast between the white sands and blue sky.
03/15/2009 07:37:11 AM
Nice shapes and lines in the sand.
03/15/2009 07:05:44 AM
Nice desolate landscape shot
03/15/2009 06:07:44 AM
interesting but thats about it.. ;D
5 from me
03/14/2009 10:07:15 PM
nice contrasting colors, the blue sky and the white sands
03/14/2009 06:03:41 PM
A closer shot of the shadows of the small plants might have been more interesting.
03/14/2009 02:56:10 PM
little less on the bottom might have brought the viewer more of a feel of immediacy jmo

A nice landscape, but very grainy in the sky. Your 58k file size tells me this is probably due to excessive JPEG compression. Check your compression settings when you save your file. Always adjust JPEG compression so that your file size is as large as possible, but within the challenge limit. (200k for this one) You could have also used a few more pixels of image size.

Interesting shot, great contrast in textures and color.
03/13/2009 02:39:12 PM
Good shot. Needs a little more pop to score really well.
03/13/2009 12:55:55 PM
03/13/2009 12:34:36 PM
Great patterns! Love the blue sky!
03/13/2009 12:21:56 PM
looks like snow??? good colors
03/13/2009 11:32:56 AM
neat capture
03/12/2009 07:42:51 PM
i think you probably could've found a more interesting perspective/composition for this
03/12/2009 06:19:49 PM
Decent shot of a rather boring subject.
03/12/2009 02:48:18 PM
watch out for missiles =)
03/12/2009 12:08:26 PM
I LOVE this place. I've only been once and am haunted by wanting to go back.
03/12/2009 09:47:07 AM
not much happening here to hold the interest. sky looks oversaturated
03/12/2009 09:24:49 AM
Looks really vast!
03/12/2009 07:00:24 AM
Nice color contrast. Beautiful.
03/12/2009 05:51:14 AM
03/11/2009 11:52:11 PM
Lovely contrasting colors. Nice composition as well.
03/11/2009 09:48:08 PM
Texture, contour, and lighting.
03/11/2009 07:23:17 PM
I think maybe a lower camera angle would've added a bit more to this...
03/11/2009 06:44:15 PM
Nice shot but a little plain for this challenge.
03/11/2009 05:23:59 PM
I like how this looks like it goes on forever, very nice capture
03/11/2009 05:18:01 PM
This may sound odd but it gave me an uncomfortable chill down my spine. I assume (maybe incorrectly) that it's all sand dunes, but it looks so much like snowdrift-meets-desert that it I feel as if I'm witnessing the onslaught of the next ice age, which isn't a pleasant prospect! :)
03/11/2009 03:50:00 PM
Looks like an interesting place to visit.
03/11/2009 03:01:17 PM
Great vanishing point image, love the blues
03/11/2009 02:18:03 PM
This photo is very nice but it could've benefitted from a different perspective - maybe had you crouched down and gotten the sand from a closer view.
03/11/2009 01:34:47 PM
Nice contrast between the blue and white.
03/11/2009 11:00:09 AM
Oooh, I would love to visit there, nice job of carrying the eye threw the image..
03/11/2009 10:05:43 AM
nice picture
03/11/2009 09:19:23 AM
Pretty and love the blue.
03/11/2009 02:43:12 AM
where's the snake?? I don't see enough of the desert to keep my interest.. sky is nice color
03/11/2009 12:51:33 AM
seems to have a bit of noise and soft focus. The colors are nice.
