Nicely done. I really like the textures, the leading lines & the repeating patterns between the mountains in the BG & the dunes in the mid ground. Good interest throughout the image.

I love the foreground textures and detail and the S-curve up the middle with the de-emphasized sky. The side-light adds impact. A wall-hanger!

Hi Michael - IQ looks pretty good for a scan. I too like all the textures and shadows here. Well done.

Andrew and David- Thank you.

Rachel- Thank you. It's a 4x5 black and white negative scanned at 2400 ppi. I may opt for a drum scan on this one but at the moment I plan to print at 17x22 so maybe not.

Hi Michael, love the details in the sand...beautifully done...I can't decide if I like it more with about half the sky cropped out or not...

Love the texture and detail in the sand I am with Andrew on the sky I would likely get rid of some of it.
