I love this because of the look on the camels face, the beautiful red colour of the kasbah, the stoney ground but most of all I love the reflection of the clouds in the water.. I like your title too..

one point for the title and one for the outlook - a little lacking in contrast but nice

Brilliant composition, the polarised sky looks brilliant and the positioning of the camel leading to the Qasbah is beautiful.

Great shot, and that use of the Clash song title really got my attention too! I like the composition here, with the camel in the foreground and the town in the background. The water gives a great reflection too, and helps to balance the frame nicely. Excellent work!

I looked at this and the composition is really good. That grand structure in the background and the camel smiling back, as if to say "See ya, suckers!", nice stream on the diagonal. The clouds had a reddish cast, though and the camel, too. Perhaps it actually looks like that. It didn't look quite nautral to me, so I have done a workshop. Hope I haven't overdone it. Thanks and have a good week,

The composition is a real good one, but the colour tone is a bit artificial. I think it is warmified one or two level higher.
Anyway, the theme is excellent.

that's right...title fits like a gloove.
the particular light provides with a good contrast vs the blue sky.
moreover...camel...that's what we call - here in italy - the cherish on the cake's top!

This picture has a very good composition.
First I didn't notice the small reflection of the top of the kasbah in the water behind the camel.
Rock it ! Paul

Great shot Clifton. Obviously you were not restricted to the strict 'Follow me," rules of a guided tour. Ah, the freedom to wander and choose you own POV which here is very special because of the elevation of the of the ksar and the camel near the water. Well done. Regards. Klaudio.
