Did you ever try to shoot something decent from the top of a walking camel ? I was not aware that was a tough job actually.
This picture is extracted from the same ride in the Chebbi Erg near Merzouga as that one.
I had to adjust the gamma balance to restore the original sunset tones then I cropped it a little bit to make the scene more dynamic.

A great idea, Steven. These camels look like dinasours in your photo, and the desert sand has a great color and texture. Very well seen and very well done!

Superb! What I like most in this picture is that I can Almost feel myself in the desert :-) Maybe the colors, giving this warm ambiance, and the sharpness of the sand waves...

Vous êtiez sur le dernier dromadaire Steven.
La composition de ce paysage Martien est "très réussie" avec ce jeu d'ombres allongées.

Très original. Quasiment du Dali...

Beautiful. At first I thought that this was out of focus, but then I saw the ripples in the dunes and realised that only the shadows are. It's interesting to see that the shadows become more blurred the further away they go. Wonderful light and colors, the lines are also really nice.

I love this shot! The colors, the contrast, the shadows, the ripples in the sand. Really nice.

A view from the top...very unique. Perspective is interesting and the color of the sand makes a very good canvas of the shadows.

Great shot from the most original "tripod" or maybe "fourpod". Well done.

I know how difficult it is, doing it in India.. You managed to get a nice shot, yhanks to the shadow.

CURIOUS PIC, curioso. There are camel pictures and there are camel pictures. This is truly unique, capturing both the environment and the subject in one great image. Kudos!

I like the originality of this image and the strong lead in lines created by the camels legs. Nicely done.
