Great composition, conversion and love the inclusion of people which gives a great sense of scale. My only niggles would be it's a bit noisy and it doesn't look very sharp but it may be the reduction in size that's responsible.

Great composition but needs some noise reduction especially in the sky imo ..

It’s a great scene, well captured. I’d lift the blacks a touch and, as Barry and Paul have said, try and clean the file up a little. It’s a really good image though. Like it a lot.

I'll go along with everything Barry says here. It's a fine photo overall. However, the noise might be just the fact that you have only uploaded this at 83Kb, which is far below the allowed 250Kb.

I really appreciate Barry, Jason and Paul taking time to critique my previous attempt to convert from color to monochrome my October 3rd digital of Great Sand Dunes National Park. I attempted to implement their suggested corrections. Here it is:46265248892_6771cecfe0_o.jpg

The edit looks really nice. I do like the contrast in the image as well as the inclusion of people for scale, really shows the size of the dunes.
