This is really superb. Love the warm light from the lamp contrasting with the cool tones in the background - and including the lamp in the shot really makes it for me.

I'm glad you commented on one of my images, because it's introduced me to your remarkable portfolio. I think I've seen this elsewhere - I can't remember where - and remember thinking at the time what a remarkable photograph it is. Sublime quality. What I would give to visit a landscape such as this!

This is the kind of holiday snap I would fantasize about! I don't think you could come home with anything more spectacular from your trip. Exquisite lighting, jaw-dropping background and a taste of the mood and people like none before...



PS Not worth the effort trying for prizes on here... your energy is better spent selling EVEN MORE pictures in the real world!
