The tiny grains of sand in Namibia's Sossusvlei dunes collectively pile 300 meters upwards, the highest on planet Earth. These hikers are making their way to the Deadvlei hard pan, swallowed up by the giant dunes.

ther's nothing to say that could improve the composition, colors, scale, sharpness and felling to photo like this...

I would have left the hikers out but in this case I think its a good idea it really provides scale to the immensity of the dunes.
Great colors. Good shot

Great photo, well done putting the people on the shot, it makes you realize how big the place is. Great POV

Beautiful simple composition. Small group on right gives good scale. Is this real colour? On my monitor it looks mauvy pink.

Une vue minimaliste mais bien agréable. Je ne reconnais pas les couleurs de ces dunes. A quelle heure avez pris cette photo ?

Wow Christian, a really wonderful shot, the immensity of the desert is just overwelming and what this photo tells us is that after all humans are really not that dominant, nature is!! maybe you could have sharpened the sand a bit more but it still a wonderful photo, thank you for sharing it with us, Salas

Just a beautiful composition. You placed the hikers perfectly. Not much to improve upon here, perhaps sharpening a bit.

This photo is just plain AMAZING - the people placed perfectly to give a feeling of scale of these ENOURMOUS dunes that are just completely out of this world!!
