Great picture here! I like the contrast between the golden sand and his blue clothes. Also you have a great composition with only part of the camel in! I think thats great!

Fabulous colours - and the inclusion of just part of the camel gives a good feeling of the pair passing through our field of vision.

Very nice! Personally, I´d go to a landscape here, but your choice combined with great composition works very fine here. The colors are superb, can´t say anything else about it.
Great work, Kris!

Beautiful simplicity. Perfect neutral background. The man's colours pop out but I think the face of the camel is what really makes the shot.
