Golden Sands by DrewHopper Golden Sands by DrewHopper
I haven't been out shooting for a while so thought I'd process a colour shot from this day [link] I quite like the mood of the shot, very beautiful sunlight coming in from the west, which really lit up the foreground well. I used no filters here, just the 10mm again and minimal processing. Enjoy.

Damn but that's impressive. Love the way the lines in the sand and the patterns of the clouds seem to converge and pull the eye into the frame. And the colours are amazing!

Damn fine work. :clap:

Love the saturation of colour (works better than the B&W, IMO) and the beautiful natural lines. Well done. I'd love to be able to take something like this.

This is just stunning, I love how it's taken from an angle where the viewer looks from the golden sands onwards to the landscape, then the vast gray clouds. Brilliant work.

Phenomenal shot!! The contrast between that golden sand and the dark sky is amazing, the two look like they belong together. The ripples in the sand are also amazingly detailed.
