@Bill_Fach This is really pretty. The textures on the left are really nice, and when you cross the line it’s smooth. I like both the division and how the line leads you in with the squiggle adding interest. This is the kind of image I can envision on a wall somewhere (i.e. a business).

Wonderful, yet subtle, textures and lines. A nice change from all the dune photos with deep shadows and wide tonal values. I like the soft curves.

Bill, your title describes this perfectly. The detailed look at the micro texture in the dune, the fine curving edge and the brighter bits “disappearing” into whiteness make for a nicely artistic view.
