Edited this shot today, to bring out some color and contrast. What do you think?

One of my favorite places to shoot the sunset. So many opportunities, as long as you walk out past most of the footprints :)

Great colours, love the lead in that the ripples give.

Don't care for the vignetting. And it's oversaturated.

I think the post processing adds a lot to the photo. Very nice. Moody.

The tones and curving forms are elegant. It is a beautiful image.

I like it, the dunes alone can be bland at times.
