Great shots! Love the wide views, but I find the branches in front of #3 a bit distracting. They kind of throw a barrier and it is not clear what should be the subject of the image.

Great shots, John, I especially like #4. I will be back there next week, albeit only for a day.

Consider it an attempt to get some foreground interest :rolleyes:

Beautiful set again!
I really like 4 :)
Excellent set, I really got a sense of the place...! :smile:
Nice shots, especially #8.

These are great, nice work.
#4 for me....although they are ALL very nicely captured and processed!
Thanks for all the good comments, I do appreciate them.

Wonderful shots. I have to get back there.
#4 is Great, I love it!!
Looks like you had some nice clouds. Did you do some kind of HDR on some of them? The color of the dunes looks odd, were they wet maybe?
Thanks guys - the dunes were a problem for 2 reasons, the clouds and the fact it had rained - not something I expected in one of the hottest and driest places on the planet :biggrin:
