This is another (and probably the last!)photo from Gran Canaria.
I found cropping this photo quite difficult as it looks like two images in one but I hope you like it.

good play with the nature curves, enhanced by the lateral light which gives the copper color to the sand.
I would have removed the sky, and crop the top, just above the dark triangle at right.

Nature is fantastic. A human mind would find it hard to design a dune like the nearest one with these incredible shapes. You also made an interesting composition by including the totally different more distant dunes. A very attractive photo. Your new album looks impressive too. I'll take a closer look later.

Fantastic shot; well composed with an interesting play of light and shadows and 'patterns' formed by nature itself. Tich earthly colour tones. I love it!

A nice flourish, well composed, nice light. My only regret is that you did not work out the sky, but despite this photo notes. It is very natural. Good job ...
regards from warsaw, m00n

An excellent shot
i like the contrast between the riddles on the sand and the smooth parts
Good use of the vertical frame for more depth
Best regards, enjoy your WE

the lovely curving patterns created in the dunes are really well portrayed in an imaginative composition.
I actually quite enjoy the nice clear sky as an unobtrusive back drop.
Best regards Les.

Very nice shot, we could feel in desert. I like the lines on the sand that add graphism. Nice dark / light contrast that adds relief to the scenery.

Great crescent shape in the dune. The overall colour scheme is very appealing. I also like that bit of blue that the ocean adds at the top. Fine textures.

I can see that you might have had some difficulty cropping this one - it must have been quite difficult to remove areas which were good and yet try to concentrate on the points of main interest!
But this is a lovely shot, very well composed and with some lovely sweeping lines and fabulous textures brought out by the oblique lighting. The colours are lovely and vibrant, the exposure perfect and the details and sharpness superb.
P.S. Thank you for adding that link to your photographs on another website - they ceratinly look good and, of course, I recognise many of those pictures. Is that a site where you can sell your photographs? And is there any feedback/critiques/ comments or anything like that there?
