Your photo brings back some wonderful memories as I grew up on Holloman AFB, which is right next to White Sands, use to surf on those dunes. Your photo is stunning love the pastel colors, way to go.
A delightful image, Dean.
And the pano works well here.
I like the slightly high key form you've chosen here. The basic image is so strong that you could probably express it several other ways and have it work well, also.
