This image was taken late in the day. My goal with image making is to create an artistic interpretation of what I am photographing.

Welcome to NPN, Bob! This looks really good, graceful and beautiful. B&W just works with dune images. Love the lines and range of tones. No suggestions here.
I look forward to seeing more of your work and reading your insights into the work of others.
Welcome to NPN. Gorgeous first post.
Love the geometric “pattern” between the two dunes. The B/W and contrast adds a very interesting depth to the image.
Looking forward for more images.
Thanks for sharing,
Bob: A terrific image from one of my favorite places on the planet. I’ve not done much B&W with my dune images but it’s shots like this that make me want to get back into it. Wonderful lines and terrific contrast range. Superbly crafted image >=))>
Welcome to NPN, Bob. I like this a lot. The lines and triangles and the tonal range make for a very compelling image.
Bob, welcome to NPN. The strong contrast even as you retain subtle details in both the brights and darks makes a compelling picture.
Really breathtaking. Can you share a bit about how you treated the image to get those very dark eyebrows of the dunes?
Here’s the unprocessed RAW capture for this image. I didn’t do much processing. The “dark eyebrows” on the edges of the dunes seem to be shadows from this morning image.
