    mrsawyer: I played with different looks and settled on this B&W version, but the color version is very nice too with soft colors. Contrast was not a major adjustment. Obviously one can take an image in many directions regardless of whether the original happens to be more or less contrasty. But, of course, you already knew that.

    Congrats - lovely shot. Good choice of Silver Efex to get this result.

    During your development, did you reduce the contrast to get this look?

    Nice setting but this looks over exposed and lacking contrast on my monitor. Possibly try cropping off the nearest OOF post giving a squarer format. I think it would look better that way. GL.

    I think it could have used a bit more contrast but still a beautiful composition. High in my TT.

    Very nicely framed, and the high key is not bad. Maybe some darker blacks would be better.

    like this black and white... in my favorites... did you experiment with darker shadows?

    Superb shot that couldn't be more on theme. The detail in the sand really makes the photo. High in my pics.

    I love the patterns and the texture of the sand. My only concern is that the overall image appears overexposed. Perhaps more contrast would help.

    This shot has impact! Beautifully done. The overall lightness adds to the whole. Kudos!

    A great entry, and all the better for the b+w. In my TT.

    Top class. Very grainy - although I mean the sand :)

    Nice concept and composition , well-executed. Might prefer a bit more contrast, with stronger blacks.

    Good subject, well composed. I enjoy the interplay between the natural landscape and Mans' imposition.
