I like it very much. It is a very interesting idea with fool of effects. Bravo.
vedra (0) 2006-10-01 6:58
Funny :) You were dancing because the sun was hot or because you wanted to have a funny photo? Good idea anyway and well composed.
SzeWan (96) 2006-10-01 7:09
How whimsical! Great Shot! Very interesting subject. tfs
renerob (601) 2006-10-01 7:40
Nice fun shot, well composed and no camera shake which is good considering the fact you where stood on one leg.
ceky (2592) 2006-10-01 8:49
What a nice idea...
I suppose the dance was intentionnal, and you have a full set of such pictures...
The darkness of the sky (which could perhaps have been a bit larger) repeats somewhat the darkness of the shadow.
Morganistik (344) 2006-10-01 9:44
yes we can believe : we see that you can't even stand on both feet :)

Da, aici se observa ochiul artistului(ei)... Ideala fotografie pentru un afis publicitar sau ceva de acest gen!

nice shadows dancing on the hot sand,
excellent colours too.

UnTrained (0) 2006-10-03 7:33
excellent shot and well done. But I do believe the temperature
Nelu_Goia (3116) 2006-10-06 23:14
Ideea este geniala (si traznita,sa fiu sincer) iar poza este foarte bine realizata: bine incadrata, expusa si gindita.
balatrek (7455) 2006-10-10 18:26
Great indea to include the shades in the composition, I like the saturation of the colors and variety of contrast, beautiful textures, an interesting and creative work.
alentejo (1954) 2006-10-13 12:20
Hi Liliana !
Great and funny shot indeed ! I like the compo. We can even see who's taking the picture. Beautiful colors and contrast as well. Good stuff.
LeToun (0) 2006-10-14 8:16
I like this picture. I would prefer if you cropped it like on my WS.
But that's a nice picture !
sbrizio (501) 2006-10-17 5:36
very amusing photo with beautifuls colors, I love it.
jrj (34843) 2006-10-17 14:15
Absolute fun and well done photo. The silhouettes in the sand is just great. Creative work..
AmiBe (6042) 2006-10-17 15:14
ah ah ah, really funny picture.
I laugh when I saw this one, thank you. :)
Still better if the shadows weren't centered.
Emiel_Skyfreak (3002) 2006-10-19 7:23
This one is really nice!
Very good tones, great subject too. Very funny the poses, and original idea!
Good sharpness and nice minimalistic composition, a few lines, light & shadows, two human shadows, works very well.
vinicio (23423) 2006-10-19 18:08
Excellent amusing image and note Liliana, compliments, beautiful image and beautiful landscape with great colors, compliments.
aralda (1240) 2006-10-20 9:39
Foarte haioasa poza ta din Canare!! Ai avut o idee minunata sa fotografiezi siluetele; parca sunt dintr-un film de desene animate!

Eine wunderschöne Aufnahme!
Hier stimmt alles, die Lichtstimmung, die prallen Farben,
die Schattenfiguren, der gewaltige Himmel...
ben-hill (79) 2006-10-20 14:01
Can't add too much more to the comments you've already received. It's pretty much all said.
Still wanted to say something though as the photo put an instant smile on my face and left me staring at it for some time (the photo...not my face)
Greetings from Moenchengladbach (Germany)
P.S. Excellent workshop from LeToun
paura (47186) 2006-10-20 20:47
Funny and interesting shot, Liliana.
Well resolved colors.

flory (4848) 2006-10-22 1:28
foarte faina aceasta fotografie...traznita ,dar geniala idee ai avut...
axiotea (21651) 2006-10-22 3:59
The dancing silhouettes look great, and I understand why, because of the hot sand. Good contrast between the golden sand and the grey sky.
teutza (10590) 2006-10-22 13:33
ce tare e imaginea asta!!:))
si imi place mult ideea:))parca e o imagine din monkey island(e un joc)
AnaFrantz (636) 2006-10-23 8:20
Really nice photograph! I really liked the composition of your picture, the skye made a good line with the sand especially as you choose to not show as much as the skye.
branley (3681) 2006-10-23 8:46
a very amusing image which has turned out very well. Good colour, sharp (considering your pose!) and the pov is excellent. Well done.

amstel (2388) 2006-10-24 19:22
Fantastic idea, makes me feel like I was watching an old silent movie. Which of the shadows is yours??:-)
goodwill (4226) 2006-10-24 19:25
Ha ha ha Liliana,
great use of the light and shades...and a master piece of shadows and silhouteees by you.
pady (4800) 2006-10-25 6:40
This is the most funny picture in your gallery. I like it very much. It's simple but very effective.

snowfalken (1116) 2006-10-26 11:20
Imi place foarte mult fotografia ta! Parca este o lucrare de grafica. Si ideea este originala. Combinatia de culori este foarte reusita iar texturile de pe nisip sunt nemaipomenite! Felicitari pentru o asemenea opera de arta!
russte (0) 2006-10-26 16:11
Hi Liliana, such an original image. I love the use of these dancing shadows as the principal elements of the composition. And the superbly saturated colours provide an excellent canvas for them to perform on. Your exposure was absolutely spot on. The sky is wonderfully moody as well. Excellent. Stephen
a_i_ren (1315) 2006-10-27 20:18
Great well composed image! Very expressive shadows :-) Interesting composition. Awesome job! Love it! Bravo!
AiresSantos (56155) 2006-10-28 3:54
Thanks for your visit !
Very nice ideia... funny, excellent colours and gorgeous shadows.
I like how you framed the picture and contrast between the sand and the sky.
Thanks for sharing and all the best to you.
mdetay (4865) 2006-10-28 8:18
This one is a great funny one. The text also is great.
Good idea and good realization (84 today - what a score).
Cheers from Hong Kong.
No more :) I shall be back soon. Cheers.
cmoraru (557) 2006-10-28 13:20
In ton cu muntele de comentarii de mai sus, ideea ta a fost nu doar foarte buna dar si bine materializata... iar comentariul face toti banii :-D Altfel, sunt fascinat de textura nisipului... ca eu n-am ajuns sa vad dune pana acum. Mai pune!
fryz (1735) 2006-10-28 16:55

Nice shot with a good deal of humour to it. I like the moment of capture and the warm tones of the sand. The picture is imaginative and well thought out. Well done.
ryno (6865) 2006-10-30 12:34
Hi Liliana, this is such an interesting shot, well-executed. It's always great to see an experiment that comes off, and this one had particularly good results. Original & fun! Regards,
isabela_sor (47748) 2006-10-30 13:40
Nu stiu daca e cea mai reusita fotogrfie a ta ..dar eu o ador!Pentru ca emana umor si arta in acelasi timp! e o compozitie de ....100 de puncte !

Hi, dear Liliana,
congratulations, you have had a good eye for a good photograph...it's well seen scenery!!!
ksvijayb (385) 2006-11-02 10:05
The picture looks like the capture of a tribal dance on the desert.
Amazing picture and it is really wonderful that you managed to take a great picture inspite of the hot sands...
Voltri (1777) 2006-11-02 17:03
As usual, great ideas pays off... Nice shot, +2!

It is such a fine, funny composition. Seldom something spins into laughter and this photograph managed that.
otavio (55) 2006-11-06 6:10

ciaccio (66) 2006-11-07 5:20
Yeah, a good idea for a good shoot.
elkab (4951) 2006-11-07 15:52
Yes it is great picture, excellent shadow, nice showed texture of the sand and funny scene.
Vato_Law (12720) 2006-11-07 16:24
Great photog with these dancing shadows reflected on the sand. The shapes and textures on sand are another very interesting point along with the beautiful light reflecting on sand.
baba_flies (8829) 2006-11-09 10:24
Hello Liliana ... funny your comment and I do know hot sand. So big big smile watching the two ... some run over hot coal, others stand hot sand ... this is how it goes. Hot shot. Barbara.
naval (172) 2006-11-13 19:33
You are the right one, yeah ? ;) very nice shot, the figurs of u two are just fantastic.. composition, colors... everything is perfect here... funney stuf, i`m still smiling :D
plamn (632) 2006-11-14 10:45
Some time ago I wrote comments to another 'desert shadows' photo, which I regarded as the best on the subject. Now, after having seen your work, I am not sure which one I like more:-)
What you created here is almost a movie, not a still photography.
I can feel the heat and hear voices. And the best of it - the photo brings smile on my face! Really enjoyable work!
jsec (2154) 2006-11-15 22:33
A fine capture with great color. Also funny notes! You can be proud with over 100 points here.

nika (0) 2006-11-23 11:14
What an original idea with such a refreshing picture that despite the heat from the sand invades my mind with the best sensations from the summer that passed by ...Love the contrast of the sand with that imponent raging sun and of course that funny dance reproduced from the very dune ...had not heard about that canarian destination , playa del ingles that looks chillingly great ! Salut i fins prompte !!
peco85 (921) 2006-11-23 15:14
Hello Lili!and thank you for your visit:)
Quite interesting scene you've caught here. Lots of motion and at the same time timeless. Lovely shades and good crisp quality. Lovely.

Really this shot is very fun, jejejeje. I like the compo and pov. The shadows are perfect and good frame.
Good idea and good work.
terimakasi74 (285) 2006-12-11 12:12
Great Idea, and yes I believe how hot the sand is....
II like that it is not obvious who's took the picture
Robpulp (917) 2006-12-12 5:36
wow! 142 points? i think i will make it 144! Fantastic photograph, perfect shadows. Its slightly grainy but it doesnt matter. The composition is superb with the shadow, sand and sky acting as three layers, good work Liliana.
sadeik (3282) 2006-12-13 3:22
Well, its an unusual photo!
Caught my eye instantly wow
Excellant and a humerous note to boot,
I thought it would be cooler as the feet are in the shade?
ondrej (211) 2006-12-19 9:03

Hi Liliana, splendid photograph, excellent idea, and your reaction was very fast to immortalize it. The shades 'wrote'on the sand marvellous.BRAVO.Greetings from Greece. Danos

Bonjour et bonne année Liliana,
Je découvre ta galerie à l'occasion de ta visite sur la mienne et y découvre cette très originale composition très bien vue et bien restituée.
A bientôt sur TE pour de nouvelles aventures.
mvdisco (17794) 2007-01-10 18:48
WoW! Superbe composition qui nous fait voir comment le sable est chaud mais la prise de vue est extraordinaire...Great Shot with nice colors,,..
tmx (1324) 2007-01-17 18:05
hallo Liliana! great idea, strong warm colours of late sun, cheers!
tonyking (1612) 2007-01-21 5:39
You have so many wonderful pics in your album! This is one of them! It's also rare among TE pics for having a degree of humour in it as well! :) You've got a nice composition here with great colours and the dramatic sky beyond is an interesting inclusion.
The only comment I can make is that the image quality seems to leave a little room for improvement, particularly in the line where the top of the sand dune meets the sky. It seems to be slightly blurry. Apart from that minor point, it's a great pic!
sebcz (2345) 2007-01-26 13:56
What a funny picture! You obviously gad a lot of fun taking that. Well composed, its simplicity is its strength.
fjufju (335) 2007-01-28 15:29
it looks like you have real fun. If you didn't write that this was beacause of hot sand I would believe that you are triyng to dance some shadow theater. The idea is great and the picture is really well seen.
GilbertB (12258) 2007-02-04 16:43
Hello Liliana, belle scêne d'ombre chinoise. Very good composition. I like it
bhuniatrekearth (764) 2007-02-17 11:59
Yes! I couldn't resist myself to be one in the band wagon of the admirer's list.
The minimum words in the note has made the presentation more interacting for the beholder and there is your extraordinary skill.
The top sky and the shade at the bottom is undetachable in this composition to describe the story.
rfnicolasora (145) 2007-02-24 7:11
This is amazing and fun.
This is one reason why I love photography, you enjoy every moment of it, in every way.
Very nice composition. Can I copy this photo idea?
jonathan_hart (21276) 2007-02-28 7:36
i understand that this photo have about 80-90 critiques, what a success, great composition, fine colors, humoristic note, maybe too much sharpened but it's ok... well done !

Hello Liliana. Your photo on Trekearth are very interesting. I am astonished at your photographic gift and your view for beautiful and motives worth seeing. The photo Shadow into the Desert is wonderful, - a masterful achievement. Everything complements itself on the best. Very beautifully. Best regards, Wolfgang.
hackman (151) 2007-05-09 15:03
very funny and good idea, Lili Have a lovely days !!
rajiv_077 (1412) 2007-05-14 7:05
This is really creative, nice colour and shadows there. You something pay for second model....? LOL
And Thanks also for your comment on my last picture.
ekinokswest (2994) 2007-06-29 6:11
what is ironic is probably , when one looks up the sky , it is very cloudy appears as if rain is coming.
usually people are timid about deserts , as it makes the person vulnerable and makes survival difficult. but your happiness in being there is another fun aspect for this photo .
kLe (2196) 2007-08-20 8:52
Nice picture, funny and full of imagination. Though I think was posed, I like the idea and the result. And looking at other critiques I think I am not the only that considers this picture as a great one.
naturelover (306) 2007-10-06 7:20
I love this, it's show how much fun your having. This is very artistic and the warm golden colours of the sand is rich and vivid. The textures in the sand bring out more interest. Wonderfully composed with the dark clouds in the background.
lespicaros (5542) 2007-11-07 12:53
