Hello Tsilla,
outstanding shot! great capture with beautiful colours and shapes!
Best regards Siggi

This was the shot I was waiting from you, Tsilla!

You got a perfect focus and wonderful contrast in this shot from golden toned sand dunes.
Great view with perfect clarity and nice sharpness.
The colors are natural and very eyecatching.
The camel and people add great sense of scale within the shot.
Great work!

Thanks and regards,

Bonjour Tsilla,

Je rêve de voir en vrai un sable si blond ocre voire rouge!!!
Somptueuse capture des dunes qui ondulent au gré de l'harmattan. Gracieuses ombres et luminosité.
Jolie composition avec en plus les personnages qui donnent vie à cette image.
Bravo merci du partage.

The sharpness and POV are excellent!

Bonjour Tsilla,

Je suis prête pour la suivre, cette jolie caravane qui nous emmène dans le désert saharien!!!
Joli jeu d'ombres et de lumières, apportant d'excellents contrastes dans un paysage aussi éphémère que ces dunes de sable changeant au moindre coup de vent!!!

Merci pour ce joli et chaleureux partage et surtout, pour ta fidèle et amicale complicité!!!!
Toutes mes amitiés

Wow! Awesome desert scene! I wish we have camels in our sand dunes here, unfortunately we only dune buggies ruining our lovely sand dunes. Great lighting and good dof with sharp details. Love the shadows. Well done, tfs.

Hi Tsilla
A great image, the lighting is superb. Had it been mine I would have cropped some of the shadowed foreground and made the shot more panoramic.

I agree with Dai,.. the foreground does nothing to enhance or demonstrate expansiveness for this image that the background doesn't already provide. Perhaps removing some foreground and some of the boring blue skyline would give better appreciation for this great capture.

WOW! Fantastic shot Tsilla. Light lighting, color, detail, lines, just wonderful. Beautiful shades and shadows and contrast. Well done! TFS, Lori

Olá tsilla
You catch the essence of desert with a good light and tonalities.
Beautiful photo.
Um abraço

Hi Tsilla
I heard about Sahara Desert but never had I thought how it really looks like.
You are showing me the beautiful Sahara.
You well captured it with light and shadows.
Thank you so much

Bonjour Tsilla,

A great shot with a magnificent light. Excellent compostion and presentation. Focus and exposure are beautiful. May I suggest to pass a broom next time to earase all those foot prints in the sand? (I am just joking). I assume this an Highway in the desert and everybody use it, and it will stay like that until the next sand storm. A splendid image that you managed beautifully. TFS.


Magnificent light and colors.The camel seems to have refused the rider.It makes for a peaceful scene.Excellent picture,friendly regards Otto.

Hi Tsilla,

You're capturing well this Desert scene by very excellent tone and good composition, so it's impressive and interesting to see gradual ups and downs of desert as well as shadow. Footprint that caravan passed draws out a good effect, too. Anyway, it is a photograph beautifully completed.


Wow. Perfect. Great texture, light, colors, everything... You are quite the world traveler!
