Now go back and look again remembering that these works are made of SAND.

I posted the winning sculpture by John Gowdy, entitled Young Love Never Grows Old", a few days back.

2nd Place - Rich Varano | USA
Title: “Cascadia – A Sand Fantasea”

3rd place - Walter MacDonald | USA
Title: “Poor Planning”

This is again the 3rd place entry. Same shot just edited to enhance, and draw attention to the work and not the surroundings.
Enlarge for better view.

Title: “Glory Lost and Restored”

5th place - Sudarsan Pattnaik | India
Title: “Save the Sea”

6th place - Helena Bangert | Netherlands

      These are so fabulous! Your edit in #3 is lovely, but it seems to make the sculpture appear smaller to me. Don't know why and it really doesn't matter. They are still amazing and so well photographed!

      Beautiful shots. What I found particularly interesting was that the edited one (#3) looked as if it could be a table top version, whereas the original (#2) looks bigger and is clearly on the ground.

      These have been captivating shots, Ray! I would have loved to see them for myself, so this is the next best thing - your shots have shown us wonderful facets of these creations. I can't comprehend the free-spanning areas. How do you get sand to be cohesive and not fall into the opening???
