Winners Announcement

1st Place


Lusbah Landscape by Mohammed Arfan Asif FRPS

I love to photograph landscapes and the dunes are closest to my heart. Whenever I interact with them, I try to spend time deciding on interesting compositions and perspectives that would present their stature, their indomitable spirit, their grandeur as well as their sensuousness. This image was taken in the deserts of Umm Al Quwain, an emirate in the United Arab Emirates. They are quite close to the mountainous terrain of the Musandam range. The iron content of these sands gets oxidized over time and presents an orange hue which is further accentuated by the morning light. The foliage was included here to balance the crescentic sand dunes as they flow in a meandering pattern upwards. The light predominantly striking the slip face was good and bright and therefore, the exposure ensured good depth of field with F stop 11 at 1/500 shutter speed using my Canon 70-300mm at 270mm with ISO 200 on my Canon 5DMk2.
