Sand Dunes National Park
Another view of Great Sand Dunes National Park, looking out towards the Sangre de Cristo Mountains. The aspens were beginning to turn their beautiful yellow color.

Hello Amber -
IMO, this image has a lot of potential but I think there is something missing from this image. There is too much foreground without a point of focus to hold the viewers attention. My first look at the image I had to really look hard to find the aspens. If this was your main subject I would have them right up front where there is no question. This image need something in the foreground to help the viewer like a leading line of some sort or a nice pinyon pine. The exposure is spot on, DOF is appropriate, and the image is sharp. I do like the composition of sky, mountains, and dunes.
Thank you for sharing

The sky here is beautifull. Clouds seems to be in 3 D. The depth of field is great too. A nice composition.

For me a new place to explore - another grand landscape to visit on TE. Your low pov includes well the foreground diagonal and balance well to the mountains in the back. Nice place, well presented in your compo Amber.

Vibrant blue sky compliments the yellow aspens wonderfully. The big puffy white clouds contrast with the sand and cast wonderful shadows on the mountain tops.
