Hi Alexis,
This certainly brings back memories! I like the panoramic format and the way the softness of the dunes contrasts with the angular mountains behind, although I think you could perhaps have desaturated the blues on the mountains a little. The light is obviously very harsh during the day and there appears to be a bit of a blue cast.
Did you stay the night in Death Valley? We ended up spending the night on the Furnace Creek camp ground which was quite an experience! I'd like to go back in February or March which would be better for photography and a more comfortable temperature.

Default To johnfreeman: Hi John

thanks for comment.
So for mountains on background that you know are more far than we think, they were to dark so i used level tool a little bit.
We didn't stay night on. I had think to sleep in campground of Furnace creek if it wasn't too hot but temperature was 117°F (47°C) so i used my escape plan and directly go to Vegas. I'm sad because i had wanted to make picture of furnace creek, badwater, zabriskie, artist palette and a very long night shot of this dunes with stars circle. I think temperature was not too hot on night, maybe cold like all deserts but we can't wait night with this. Of our trip of 3 weeks, it was the only part i didn't do as i had planished. But the humourus idea i got is that DV was stronger than me and other and that why this place had win her name for a long time.
If you can go back on better season, go enjoy and make excellent pictures like thoses you post. A part i wish to visit but who is very difficult to access is the race trck on north, with moving rock on ground.... Unbelievable.....Best regards and have a good day
