Bit of an abstract composition, and for that I can see your choices for color, light and dark. For me personally I see this as a B&W image.

I agree printed it both ways just thought NPN may be getting tired of my B&W
Thanks again

I really like this image! I love the point of view and extreme contrast. My personal preference is the color version, though I doubt anyone here would be tired of your B&W posts. Keep 'em coming!

I really like the color version but the B&W is close. I believe it does convey an emotion - aloneness (but not loneliness). Nicely done!

Steve both are nice but the tones in the colour version really grabbed me. Great shot.

VERY dramatic and powerful, especially with the contrast of gold and dark tones in color. Nice work.

This is a spectacular image in color or b&w. My only suggestion would be a little bit more room at the top. This crop feels somewhat constrained and if you had just a touch more room above the dunes, I believe it would make an already amazing image just a wee bit better. Thanks for sharing!

Hi Steve. I think it definitely has emotion. I like the color version and how you can feel the light. It caught my attention even as a thumbnail. As i look at it i think the framing is very nice - the two bands of dark blue in the sky and the foreground really emphasize the color in the dune.

Wonderful seeing! I’ve been busy and got behind here, but had to have a closer look at this one. I lean toward the B/W. I agree with wanting more room on top. It looks as though you may have added some already, as there is a dark gray band across the top. I long to see an even tone above the dune.

Lots of room to play with tonalities here.

Really nice in B+W.
