This is fantastic, great control of lighting. Perfect sky and really cool wavy texture in the sand. Very nice composition. Well done James. :)

I immediately recognized the symmetry between the patterns in the sand and the cirrus clouds before reading your well-written note. So, the composition certainly works for me. Maybe a polarizer could bring out the sky more. Independent of the excellent photo, I notice some vignetting and softness in corners and edges, possibly due to the 35 mm format.

Beautiful colour and texture. Great sharpness. Maybe a horizontal crop would have been better? If you have a similar shot in the horizontal I'd like to see it. Well done anyhow.

Wow James a superb shot and with the ultimate machine a 1DsMkII! the detail in the dunes are beautifull Well composed shot nice light. I bet the original is awsome. Wonder if a ND grad filter would have helped a bit in the sky exposure. Some amazing works in your portfolio tfs rgds Necip.

This is indeed a magnificent shot!
These ripples on the sand do indeed resemble the small clouds from the sky! What an interesting thing ;)
The colors and exposure is your shot are fantastic and excellently well balanced.
The details everywhere are very beautiful and sharp and the presentation is lovely.
Initially i wasn't sire of the 50-50 composition, but then, after reading your notes and taking a second look over the elements of both the sand and the sky, i agree with you and since it's a "mirror" effect, the 50-50 works best!
Cheers and TFS

At first I have to say that it is really nice to see your pictures. I really like to watch "diversity" of places which you have visited :) And this one is another example.
Desert picture from Sudan is really nice. I like colours of this photo + its good DOF and contrast between sand and blue sky.
Many thanks for showing it! :>
