Pre-Imperial Tatooine Technology
Lens: DA* 300/4 Camera: K-1 Photo Location: Tatooine (sort of)

Or Steam Punk meets Star Wars. Actually, I grabbed these shots at sunset as we experience an influx of Saharan dust that's been blown all the way across the Atlantic so folks in Texas can enjoy a "Tatooinian" vibe.

It certainly does give a different effect - and you used what you had - silhouetting and reduced light from sun - very effectively.

Thanks for the kind words. We get these conditions (dust from the Sahara) occasionally, and they give the place an otherworldly look - especially at sunset.

Thanks very much, Peter. I need the encouragement; I can't swing my light saber like I used to.

You're right. Saharan dust is nothing to sneeze at.
