I was recently there for the first time. What a wonderful place! I had a very clear idea of how I wanted to photograph it. Whether it was a good idea or not is debatable.
Stunning set, Don. #2 is probably my favorite but they're all wonderful. Definitely a good idea.
I particularly like the first, because it's more abstract than others (And the subject is nature, abstract nature is my favourite game)

Richard, Giovanni, thank you very much.
Richard, number 2 is the only one taken with a wide-angle lens from up close. On the rest I had to use longer focal lengths to exclude unwanted distractions. I'm happy with all of them but I'm reminded that shooting from nearby with a wide-angle lens, when possible, pulls the viewer into the photo more.
These are wonderful. My favorite of the set is # 1.
Your comment on the wide angle lens reminds me of how special wide angle shots can be - and you're right, distractions definitely jump in.
Bravo Don! #2, #3 and #4 are special!!
Denise and Taz, thanks. I think almost any landscape photographer would enjoy the place, although it takes some work to find a spot that isn't covered in footprints.
My favorite is 1, I like the smoothness of the curves. I think 4 and 5 would benefit if you cropped the bottom somewhat, a 16:9 format perhaps?
Thanks for the feedback, Cristobal. I debated whether to crop both of those--maybe not long enough!
Great set Don! Hard to pick a favorite.
I too cannot choose a favorite, but you definitely nailed it. Beautiful set!
JonaBeth and Phil, thanks. The place moved me and I'm glad if I captured some of that.
These are just wow. All are great pictures, and as others stated, it's hard to pick a favorite - but number 3 is just so surreal, superb!
Thank you for sharing.

Very nice Corny
Indeed.. footprints are the curse of the dunes... although sometimes....
Personally I like the texture of #2
Many thanks, guys.
These are cool, Don. I like the processing and minimalism.
My goodness, this is amazing! Composition is incredible.
