    Very lovely where was this taken? I kind of agree with the comment down below I wish there was more headroom. I felt where was the camel going to place his head when It placed it back up again.

    Very cute baby camel. Love the overall colors too. I would have liked to have seen more sand, to give it the expansive feel of the desert. I think the sand in the lower half of the image is lovely.

    Now this makes a change. The kind of photo I will probably never be able to take. It may be just me but I would have liked to see a little more headroom at the top of this photo as I cant get out of my mind he has no where to put his head when he straightens up!. GL.

    Good capture. Well Composed and certainly transmits the sense of the dry desert. The lighting is very attractive.

    Such an amazing animal, and so suited to its environment. This is a lovely shot of this little family, especially with the long light defining the footprints and ripples in the sand.

    Thanks RB and AB.

FC - Just for interest... This was taken at 6:06 am... So you half right:), the lighting was mostly natural. I just enhanced it in pp.

    Great setting, fine technique, subtle lighting, exotic subject but some how it feels crowded or too tightly cropped. I would like to see an empty expanse to the right.
