beautiful golden light. Like how the water arches across the frame. The sand makes some interesting formations too.

Great shot.

A very good composition of lines and lights.
The statues in the distance create a geat depth.

This light is extraordinary. The composition and exposure are perfect. Full marks, Ian. Print it, Frame it. Hang it.

It's like a surreal painting (Magritte perhaps), the details are extraordinary.

Perfect light and atmosphere. Excellent perspective. Well done!

Mirko Herzner from Mühlheim am Main, Germany

I am thinking back and forth if this is a typical Branham... I guess it is. Simplicity, landscape, composition and work with textures. Just a bit too much color ;-)

Ted from South Wales, United Kingdom

Just seen this and the others on DP Review...this/they are absolutely stunning. I know that you may favour / BW may be your trademark...but when you do colour...damn its good! Nice work always!

simply a superb composition, especially with the water leading in and curving away in the distance... that really caught my eye! add well balance light and great gloden brown tone and you have a stunning result!
