You know, I like the pictures, especially the two of the dunes, the one with predominantly sky (and what a beautiful sky!) and the silhouetted one that looks like it was taken in the late afternoon. But have we become so sensitive to anything negative that someone simply expressing their opinion on the quality of one's work causes such a backlash that forces the poster to remove his comments? Are we only supposed to post if we have something positive to say about the images? While what sanj said may not have been that constructive, neither is "pretty images" or "beautiful shots". In fact, I'd argue that what sanj said is more constructive than simple appreciation. It allows one to think about what could be done better, if the composition was optimal, if the lighting was right, etc, moreso than any simple compliment.
