This is the little photo mat - 9" by 7" - that I just finished. I'm not thrilled with it. Had real trouble getting any sense of distance and depth of field in this small area. I ended up using my darker values in the foreground and tried to use the lighter values as the view goes back. But the vastness of the landscape was too difficult to achieve in this small space.
Even though it does not achieve the effect I had hoped, I decided to keep for the album because when Alexander saw it he said, "Hey that's me at the dunes." So it triggers a memory for him. Indeed it is our trek across the Sleeping Bear Dunes when we thought the trail would never end.
