I finally got a chance to make it back to White Sands. I promised myself I would return; my first trip didn't do it justice. It really is the most amazing place I have ever seen.

Exposure was really hard to nail because the scene is so inherently bright and there is such little contrast. I had to play with subtle tones and try and put the majority of the scene in the right zone. I still am not sure if it worked.

I like these Julian. I have to go there someday. It's on my list of places for the state of NM.

Thanks! I can't really begin to explain how incredible and bizarre White Sands is. The entire time I was there, I really couldn't shake the feeling that the landscape felt like it didn't really belong on earth. It feels so alien and extraordinary.

Love the first and third. Maybe fix the firsts white balance so that the sand does not appear blue, although I can honestly say it looks fine how it is. Ill have to add this to my travel plans...

Good work, Julian. That's quite a sunset. I've been there three or four times, still feel I could do better. I'm headed for NM now, may have to swing by White Sands.
