There was a tall wall the other side of the camels which allowed the dust to collect in the air and prevent too much light blowing out the shot.

Absolutely superb picture.
The light, the position of the subjects, the monochrome colour palette, everything very, very very good!

Proves that the really great images don't need manipulations to stand out.

A wonderfully captured moment in time.

How ever I do wonder if it could be made even better by just adding a stronger curve, or bit more contrast.

A well seen environmental portrait.
