Resorted through my 2000 or so shots from RAK last year, still on the K100D I think.

Rob,

Like the sign in 1 a lot - shame about the sky though.

And the dogs are great. Reminds me of an old shot by Herbert List - composition quite different, but a not dissimilar dog on sand if I recall correctly. I would crop your shot quite a bit higher, though. IMHO this works better.

4 and 5 for me. Lovely contrast on the dogs just a pity about the sunlit area on the left. Really like the last one too, although can't quite put my finger on what it is!

I really like #3 and #5.
I don't know what is written on the hoardings in #5 but it looks like its promotin' some new development. The hoarding and whats shown on it contrasts well with the stark flat landscape, its a great document in this respect.

#3 is quaint, it gives an insight into how people are livin', although i'm not sure if that is a home in the foreground. It has similarities with trailer parks here in the western world. A mosque is never far away it looks like, judgin' by the background. Good document.

Even more interesting, the trailer is the mosque
