I deliberately over-worked the saturation & contrast in the RAW conversion, but I liked the outcome. Interested to know what you all think. Thanks for looking.

Good composition Trevor. The footprints lead the eye straight across the diagonal and up to the village in the distance. Regards, Dave.

Thanks Guys.

@Dave: The footsteps are actually going the wrong way. The guy must have walked home backwards ;P. (anyway, they were there already (not mine!), so I just used them.

Cheers,
Trevor.

Great composition with that powerful diagonal.
The colour of the sand is gorgeopus as well.

I particularly like the contrast in colours between the softness of the grey clouds and the sharp, gritty yellow you've achieved with the sand

This is a lovely image and the feel of desolation is well interpreted.

With out the additional work this would be rather plain---However you have bought something extra into it and it works well.

Usually I like the 'real' look, but this effect works well. I can feel myself walking across the wide expanse in this otherworldly place.

A lovely shot trevor - i love the way the footprints head straight for the houses. I don't think the sat. and contrast look overworked at all - just "optimised".
