This is a most interesting image. As a matter of fact I didn’t imagine this kind of lake and landscape in Sahara. All these camels are also curious. Are they wild?

In technical terms there are some areas of overexposure, which could be avoided by measuring the light in a medium brightness area. Or even in a brighter area, as we can recover details from shadows but not burned spaces.

Another option is to crop the top part as it doesn’t bring relevant details to the composition and it’s the main burned area.

Made a WS. Hope you’ll like it.

Jose, thanks for your workshop: when I took this picture with my old camera (a Minolta) I was by no means expert, so the exposure was very bad. I tried several corrections with Photoshop, but since I could never recover the original impression I got from the place, I preferred to leave the picture as it was. The place is really in the middle of the Sahara (it takes five days with jeep from the capital to reach). Actually in the sahara there are lakes (I will post pictures in the next few days) but this place really caught my breath. The place were I stand can only be reached after a half day trekking, there is no road that a jeep can go through.
The camels are not wild, there are three people tending them (don't know were they come from, they were across the canyon, on the other side).
