A very simple but very effective shot. I think I might have cropped out the tree/bush in the bottom edge. Smile ...Steve

Thanks Steve! I thought of cropping it but I didnt want to remove so much of the dune. I'm sure I could get rid of it w/out cropping but I dont know the technique..

Hi Isabelle, try using the clone tool, it's quite easy to use. The help menu in your software should tell you how.....Steve

reminds me of Le Petit Prince. Loved that book. Really nice elements going here... the large element of nature against the human figure... we are so small in the whole scheme of things... Beautiful work Isabelle

As I said, this is perfect! Smile

(Excellent capture! I think you'll make a great result with the clone tool. The bush is really distractive. The photograph will be perfect without it. Smile

Looking at this photo makes me really feel alone.

Lovely, especially the pastel sky. Agree about the shrub - if your software has an 'object removal' tool, that would work, too. Is this in northern India?

Hey you were right, and this was easy too! Thank you, guys. Desertpea, this picture was taken in Oman, where I currently live. Thank you all for comments and ratings.
