Great perspective here, DJ. Makes those animals appear even bigger than they already are...
3 Jun 2009 6:43am
I imagine me here, pretending to be... you know who ! ;-)

@zOOm: hehe -- and YES!!! :) have you seen the movie yet? i have not, but need to do so -- to remind me of my magical time there!!!
Oh, he could offer me anything, he looks very handsome! ;) Wonderful photo and the color toning and lighting are really great!

AN excellent shot. I was once in a desert with a camel and a bedouin and I found the light extraordinarily difficult to work with; my old film SLR came back with some useless and disappointing shots.. so I can truly admire this shot in many ways. I do like the fact that the man is looking back at you - it makes it a great shot! Were you (meant to be) on the other camel?

@MrsAmber: thanks Amber!! :) no i had had quite a few rides in other places so i was just content to get this shot without a horde of people standing by... i am sure he would have wished that i had bought a camel ride... i just wanted this pic instead!! lol.
Beautiful photo, great document and b/w. Bravo.

@dobbino: thanks Rob!! :) i still have so many to process and post -- from all my trips!!! glad i waited, my processing skills are lights year ahead of where i was at 1 year ago when i started am3!! i have also begun reprocessing of many of my older pics... now that i have more control over lighting and color an exposure in photoshop!!!
Très belle cette photo en NB

Oh heavens, it's beautiful, what a lovely, lovely moment to have photographed, it's a fantastic portrait!
3 Jun 2009 10:49am
Hard to say anything but - PERFECT !!!!
3 Jun 2009 12:34pm
Absolutely stunning frame! The detail in the sand, the subtle and obvious shadows and your point of view are just fantastic! Love this one Jaycee!
3 Jun 2009 12:50pm
Extra B&W! Very interesting image. Really great work.
3 Jun 2009 1:01pm
Feels like Lawrence of Arabia - great shot! I really enjoy your roller coaster ride between the very cold and the very hot! :-)
3 Jun 2009 1:11pm
Great shot, from alaska to desert very cool
3 Jun 2009 1:20pm
nice shot dj: as noted above nicely composed with the rider looking back at you. for some reason the thing that grabs me most about this shot is the juxtaposition of the camels, a truly ancient form of transport, with the tyre tracks of modern man.
3 Jun 2009 1:34pm
Oooooooh ! Wondrous photo, my dear ! Love the mood, the B&W, the frame, the subject (ad.lib)
3 Jun 2009 1:35pm
This is such a classic portraiture! The landscape, the subjects, the lighting, the textures and the expression you've captured are all so beautiful! Enjoy this alot Jaycee!:-)

They must be more comfortable than a car on the washboard of a road that they stand on...
3 Jun 2009 3:13pm
A very nice B&W…
3 Jun 2009 3:27pm
Jaycee! Soooo-000oo good!
3 Jun 2009 3:29pm
B+w is certainly the perfect choice here. This is wonderful.

3 Jun 2009 4:33pm

3 Jun 2009 5:05pm
Love the B & W treatment as it brings out the detail in the boulders of the background. Were you the rider for the other camel? ;-)
3 Jun 2009 5:17pm
What a great shot, love the expression on the rider's face.
3 Jun 2009 6:00pm
