Good textures of the sand.

8 JohnTesta   (10/1/2003 2:32:47 PM)
Who said that the best photos can be taken at dusk or dawn? Very nice work Alex. Crisp image.
9 MarioP   (10/1/2003 2:37:31 PM)
Wow... Beautifull colors and composition...
10 Reidar   (10/1/2003 3:31:53 PM)
Very good shot! Nice light and color.
11 Armando Jorge   (10/1/2003 3:49:01 PM)
Beautiful composition !! Excellent work !!
12 Les McLean (**** ))   (10/1/2003 4:08:36 PM)
Oh yes, the contrast of colours, shadows and textures is lovely, add the slight shimmer from the moving sand results in an outstanding image.
13 JM FERRER   (10/1/2003 4:35:08 PM)
At the beginning it has hindered me the sun, but doing the picture with more thoroughness, I see it very correct.
14 Kazimierz Morski   (10/1/2003 5:39:58 PM)
Very good!!! :)K.M.
15 Gavin Dewar   (10/1/2003 6:04:00 PM)
The textures and forms in the dunes are excellent. An other example of how breaking the "blown out" rule can work with the right image. Well done.
16 Ruud (they just ain't worth it)   (10/1/2003 6:10:20 PM)
This is a shot witch tells me that the photographer realy controls his gear. good strong scene as well
17 Fernando Dias   (10/1/2003 6:26:15 PM)
Very good work! Beautiful image.
18 LindaY (Linda Y)   (10/1/2003 6:46:31 PM)
Beautiful lines and colors in this one! I love the star effect from the small aperture as it works really well here. The silky look of the sand caused by the slow shutter speed is fabulous. I have seen it done with water many times here, but never with sand. Excellent!
19 Lockhart   (10/1/2003 6:48:18 PM)
An image to die for! Fantastic.
20 KAY (........ .......)   (10/1/2003 7:05:41 PM)

25 KarenJ   (10/1/2003 8:15:54 PM)
Great work Alex, very good use of the light, well composed with very good colour.
26 archera (Roland DiSabatino)   (10/1/2003 8:43:08 PM)
Excellent photography Alex ... every thing worked so well, especially getting the sky so nicely blue. I just love the sand's textures that show so well because of the bold approach to shoot into the sun, and I can almost feel the heat, and certainly the desolation. Great!
27 Berenice Kauffmann Abud (AFIAP /2004)   (10/1/2003 10:58:24 PM)
WOW! Wonderful work, Alex! Great capture!
28 davetheplantman   (10/2/2003 1:50:15 AM)

29 David Tankersley   (10/2/2003 6:27:52 AM)

31 Joel P Black   (10/2/2003 7:41:32 AM)
Ales since everyone else has said pretty much what I would have said just let me say it's a beautiful image. Congrats.
32 Olivier Deme   (10/2/2003 8:10:15 AM)
Alex, this is truly an outstanding image. I cannot imagine you could have retained such details in the dune without the use of filters. The details in the clouds are equally amazing. Did you use spot-metering for this shot? An incredible shot. Composition: 10. Technique: 10. Originality: 8. Impact: 9. Overall: 9.25.
33 VIRGÍLIO AMORIM   (10/2/2003 8:32:11 AM)
Hei, Alex Uchôa, I vote 10. How wonderful our star is, but take care with your eyes.

40 CherylB (I only lie when I do not like your pic)   (10/2/2003 2:28:26 PM)
lovely photo, was the sand moving and that is why it looks so silky? I just want to make sand angels everywhere.
41 A.R.T.   (10/2/2003 2:29:25 PM)
