Dune Patterns III

This is a bit different composition of a similar image I posted a couple weeks ago. This one includes more of the mountains in the background, and some dune patterns on the left side of the frame.

I like both of your versions of this setting. The closeup view was striking while with this view with the inclusion of the mountains there is more of a sense of vastness captured in the setting. I like the layering of toning, the sense of texturing (both from the foreground sand dunes and the distant mountains) and and the near pencil-like drawing quality of the picture. Striking image!

If I had to choose between this and the previous post it would be the previous. I like the
tighter composition. I just looked at it again and hadn't noticed the beetle tracks on the face
of the formation, just the ones on top. If there was a wish for this one it would be for a sky
seen in some of your other locations.

Another great image, but I also prefer the previous one...

Beautiful as well. What a contrast between the flow and softness of the dunes and the rough stone mountain in the background.

Superb; love the three textures.
