Congrats to all winners for your great work, every one of them is outstanding. Thanks to all for your interest and comment on my picture. Needless to say DPC is a great place with quality artists. I am honored to be in the top ten.
@tanguera, thanks for your comment. I appreciate your keen observation. both mine and mqnaufal's shots were from the same location.

Hello mate... I am glad that we both in the top ten now. So, it was a worth shooting there together.. Isn't? Congrats on ur top 10. :)

@tanguera: Yeah, Grog and Ooga went together to shoot this mate. ;)

So, turns out Grog did NOT go out shooting with Ooga, so completely disregard my previous comment. This is a gorgeous image, which MAY have benefited from cropping out the sky, and leaving just the sand.

I really wanted to give this a higher score. It is a great photo and a great example of layers but your horizon is off. Still a 7 from me.

Wow, fantastic shot! Love the repeating forms, texture, and subtle color.

I like this, but I feel my eye is led to the bottom 1/3 of the photograph where it thuds against the sand dune. I have to struggle to look where I want to, down the horizon.

Stunning image. Needed a bit more sky but that's ok.

I wonder if this would be a case where the sliver of sky would best be left out of the final shot in order to focus completely on the sand textures.

Has to be very near if not the top.

With a blurred enough vision this looks like the curves of a woman. Great stuff. (not voting)

Ah, so now I'm thinking Grog and Ooga have gone out shooting together again... These dunes are just wonderful. So sinuous.

I really like this picture but not the horizon.

Un poco mas de intensidad en el color de la arena se veria bien.

Great shot. Nice idea and well executed.

great capture ideal for this challenge, slightly overexposed up top but it doesn't effect it to much.
