    Wonderful textures in the foreground and great contrast between the vastness of the lake to the seemingly small figures.

    I always rather like minimalist shots such as this. You captured the feeling of a vast expanse of salt, nicely.

    This would indeed be awesome! I hope to get there one day.

    This is a perfect use a b&w. The starkness is compelling and the foreground patterning provides some relief from that. The people in the distance provides scale. Definitely a photo that I wish I had taken!

    Impressive area. Maybe you can enhance the feeling of this emptiness by experimenting with the composition?

    Effectively captures the barrenness of the environment. The slightly tilted horizon gives a feeling that we're looking at the surface of the moon. The vignette adds interest to what otherwise would be a very flat scene.

    What a stark landscape. The figures give a sense of the immense scale.

    Love the expanse of this image, was there an opportunity to have the bottom of the people on the horizon, in my top favourites

    Interesting picture. Good sharpness and well composed.

    You have captured the feeling of emptiness very well. I'd have been SO tempted to sprinkle a pack of pepper on that!

Please take a look at the three opinion polls in the Forums under 'Site Talk'. They are only open for another three days. Even a vote for 'No Opinion' or 'None of the above' would be helpful. Thanks.

    Great shot with striking contrast. Good choice for B&W which really brings out the people. Salt lakes are strange places, you captured it well.

    very difficult to comment on a challenge where there is no defined subject just people's personal choice.......
well done and thank you for the entry

    Weird and stunning. I like the grouping of three close to the horizon and the detail in the foreground.
