This is my second favorite from the Desert Fantasy series.

I just love how the golden sand looks in this photo. And what caught my attention is how the colors of the dunes and the golden clouds blend together. It really does look like a fantasy.
One more thing, the sand movement near the model, was it intentional?
I like it and I don’t at the same time. The idea is great, it looks as if he is a part of the dunes, But at the same time I feel that it’s weak , it seems you haven’t put a lot of effort in it, you need to push the idea more forward.

Well Done =)

:iconthe-unique:
The place and time of the shot were well chosen and perfectly resemble the beauty of the desert. I love the direction the model is looking towards, however the body and leg postures could be adjusted to convey a particular message. I loved the touch of sand blown near the model, it gave the image a soft feel to it and originality.

I like the environment and area chosen since there are no signs of four wheel tracks nor human impact in the image.

As for the saturation, I believe it is a bit higher than normal and could be lowered to resemble reality however the increase in saturation could be used to show surrealism.

As for the image in general, it is well taken from a nice angle. However, there has been some editing to the shot and the proof of it is the slight halo/white line around the model and less obvious around the sand dunes. This could most probably be due to the increase in sharpness during the process of editing. I have also noticed dust particles from the Razar (Polaris) that could be removed with Photoshop.

Overall an outstanding image that shows a surreal view of our beloved natural environment, the desert.

nice series =D i watched it from the beginning but this is my fav

mixing the warm and cold colors in the sky gives a beauty to the pic also the sands near the model creates a soft touch to match the earth with the sky

but what i liked most is the angle .. SHMOO5 .. this is what i feel when i see this pic =D

good luck creative a7mad =P

Your work is always inspiring.

My only distraction in this journey through the picture was the cloud of sand; in this complete still solitude on a golden field. Was this added on later on during the editing.

Cheers!

it was not added the sand was flying around because as u can see he is standing on the cliff of the sand dune so sand fly around there more ofter and it came in the picture as if he is engaged in the sand :)
