Hi Giovanni, nice sand dune scene you have captured here with the horizon line well placed. Where would this dune be located? Did you by chance use Nik's Detail Extractor? For my tastes the clouds look like they have a little too much detail in them...often when I use detail extractor I will remove or significantly reduce the effect that it has on the sky.

It is in South Africa near Upington.
Do you think I better I made again it in pp without Nick's Detail or only reduce in the sky ?
I would like avoid the sky too much flat

I really like the repeating shapes that take you back into the image. If you did the Detail Extractor on a separate layer you might just mask it out partially on the sky. It's just a very small amount overdone for me.
