Well I have to say that I love this photograph and all of its potential. It is very refreshing and beautiful, the colors are so bright and pure. The angle is very impressive ( I know how hot sand feels and it is not a lovely feeling), I also love the way this photograph draws you eyes to the top of the hill (the end of the angle), it takes you to see all of the photograph and then back around and that I like. I also love the Macro feel the observer can see every detail in the sand and the waves on it, truly beautiful. I honestly cant stop thinking of the colors, they are so pure and full of live, I can almost feel the texture of the plants and the sand. In most of the "Critiques" I do, I look at the art work and see what words come to my mind of inspiration.
Peace: When I look at this a can literally imagine the sound of the wind blowing and the clouds moving in the sky. I love nature and I love the inspiration that is in it, and when I look at this photography I fall in a state of peace. It is unique feeling and a beautiful one.
Imagination: I can not stop thinking of the great ideas and thought that are in my head when I see this photograph, I is just "awesome" and the greatness of it moves in me. Love the inspiration it gives me and every color in it just pops out in a way that makes the observer believe that he or she can touch and grasp in to the photograph.
Over all I am in love with this photograph and can not stop looking at it because it gives me the feeling that this photograph is alive. Love it! Great job, keep it up and I can not wait to see more. ^w^
When I crop the sky, it looks as though this is an underwater photo of a stream bed, with 'seaweed' poking up through the silt/sand, and sunlight refracting through unseen waves on the water's surface. Perhaps the photo's title ("streams") also plants that idea in my head.
Having said all that, this is a beautiful shot as it is... I echo the compliments of others regarding the perspective and interaction of clouds along the horizon.
So... is this beach or desert? (The plants are probably an obvious clue, but I don't recognise them.)
