I really like the texture and detail of the sand on both sides of the dune. You can almost feel the grains flowing through your fingers. Very well done.

The only thing I may have done differently is to try to make the crest of the dune on the lower right side meet the corner of the image, or crop a little from the left side to get the dune crest curve to match the same distance from the crest edge on the bottom right. Take a look at my idea.

Very nicely done!

Andres, Thanks! That little bit off the left makes a big difference and I like it! I'm going to print it that way and see how I like it.

Hi Ian, very nice texture in the sand and I like the S-curve edge of the dune leading us into the scene,

The textures and composition are superb.

Like you, I need to see a print before I can decide on which crop I prefer. Even if you keep the same aspect ratio, I might take a little off the left.
