What he said, me too.  Russ would say it's 'the presence of man in the landscape', but I think the abstration of the trail of footprints is really important.

Excellent. I can't help wondering what it would look like in colour, though.

It's a very nice image with curves and textures. The footsteps don't bother me at all, in fact I like the path they form.

i agree with Mike. I have spent many hours in PS removing footprints in dunes, but here they do complement the image.

I thought the footsteps just had a different uniformity to the natural curves in the distant dunes.  I walked a long way and my capturing the footsteps reinforced my efforts > in the task of working in Death Valley.

Very interesting shot, the top right is just getting a little too light for me otherwise very good, great textures i was hoping the marks on the sand dune top were those of a rattle snake rather than a drab old human...lol

Very nice, but I think if you cut off 1/3 of the bottom foreground and make the diagonal equal it is even more appealing... to my eye. The heavy texture and busyness of the lines at the bottom, are actually  drawing my down and out out the frame, not up and to the top.  Optical delusion Roll Eyes

Now that I look at again -- could be two photos in one ...this is cropped already from the original ... have not really looked at this picture since the 80's //\\   It could stand a little more cropping  >> thanks

I worked hard to have the right fall off in the light -- this is sunrise > very contrasty.  The distant mountains were just too far away with the depth of field ( 450mm Nikor  f 22 ) darkening them would just look fuzzy/clumpy .. take your eye away from the main dune & its shadow/peaks.  

thanks for the comments ::

Setting up for the shot ~~Only had 4 sheets of film -- every shot counts with a 4X5
