Golden Sands

After seeing Neal’s comment it prompted me to look back at the Cervantes shoot and found this little gem lurking. I tried a few new techniques on it for a more arty and different look and I think I achieved what I was hoping for.

  1. Yep. Really, really nice mate. Great leading lines and fantastic sky. You should be very proud of this one.

  2. Thanks Jamie…what I really like is how well the dunes off in the distance are highlighted and that is actually how it was on the day!

  3. Yes I liked that as well. Its the sky that has really grabbed me though.

  4. That contrast between the fluffy clouds and stark darkness of the sky is really compelling. It just draws me in.

    Lovely! I like the lines in this, and the clouds are very nice 🙂

  6. Thanks once again Eden.

  7. Very powerful image, the way the light plays on the dunes. I love that area, even though I have some not so fond memories of one particular occasion when I thought I was getting some cool shots of the dunes & pinnacles, only to discover later that there was no film in the camera (back in the day when we still used film 🙂 It meant I had to drive another 900km to get back there a few days later and do it all over.

    • Doh..don’t you hate doing that Armand?

      I have taken shots without a card before I realised you can change your settings so that the camera won’t fire without a card!:)
