I liked the inclusion of the man and his dog on the far away dune.
As an aside, this same dog ran up and bit an English photographer later in the day. So remember, always ask permission when taking photos... haha

Great photo .... it is more the end of the world.
Great colours, light, shades and sky.
Beautiful lines and details with indeed the man at the top as a unique bonus.

Photos like this gather at least fifty admirers around here. A real winner. Congrats,

Great view where the saturated colors are very attractive, also true for the sky. Sand looks like silk.
Human detail in fore/back ground are very well done.

Great Photo. Good including the man and the dog in the distance, it gives a sense of distance. Great composition and POV

It is a good capture of an interesting and beautiful place.The colours of the sky and the colours of sand dunes are great.The human element is very important as a scale and is very well positioned in the frame.Very well done.This photo is really a postcard.

What a fantastic view... the light is so soft on the dunes! Colors and shadows seem to play with each other to the top of this dune and this men on his camel adds to the lecture of the picture.
I maybe would have widen the angle to add more "space" to the landscape...
Overall, a wonderful picture.
PS: Thanks for your note on Phi Ta Khon. I absolutely agree with your comment. Thank you for helping me to learn!

Nice photo of the desert and the group.
I like the POV and the strong atmosphere.

for me the best thing with this pic are the colourful dots of clothing contrasting the natural soft tones of the dunes. A perfect light !
The man and the dog, in my opinion, are useful only for the story behind it. Without them, the dune would seem even higher.
Good job !TFS Chris

A camel train against such dunes is always impressive. Here the quality of the shop is very good and the added bonus are the colours of the clothes of the guy who's pulling the camels and, as you say, the guy and dog on top of the dune. Inspires tranquility.

Very good composition.
The colors are perfect, the sharpness is excellent and the POV is very good.

I love the vivid colors, especially the blue.
Man and dog at the top of the sand hill is a nice touch.

Hey Cliff! The image quality you got here is jaw-dropping! What a perfect play of light and shadows to show off the dunes at their best. Plus I love the saturation and rich hues all over and the camels and people couldn’t be better placed in the foreground. Super shot Cliff!

Amazing photo really, one of those shots that makes you really feel the need to visit this great place, thanks for sharing.

classic but still interesting picture on the desert/. The composition is strong and beautifull.
Maybe just little bit too saturated.
However it's amazing
john_c (24666) 2007-07-14 7:25
An outstanding image with amazing light. Its almost surreal, even without the fellow and his dog sitting atop the dune. The contours of the sand, the little track in the foreground and very fine details combine with the light and shadows for a high impact result. Great work, Cliff. And yes, its good to be back...

Hello Clifton, this is what I would call "TE Mystery" It is hard to believe that picture like this got only 40 points so far. This is a perfect candidate for 100 points. It has excellent subject, beautiful light and perfect composition. You've got also very funny note there. Wonderful work and proud member of your well presented portfolio. Lucie

Again, wonderful! This is the first photo that nearly seems three dimension. I quite like the sharpness, soft colors/light. I also like the man at the top of the hill. Perfection in my book.
ayobami (1353) 2007-09-23 8:47
Really fantastic shot! Love the contrasts, colours, lines, shadows, people and everything. Very good composition and nice scale with the individual in the background.
