    wow, the sharpening works here. Fantastic picture

    Thanks Romke, Regis & DerLitograph. @ DL: actually no masks and selective sharpening are used, the line up combined with the excessive sharpness and impressive bokeh of the 135mm lens does the trick.

The story behind "Street kids in Tingri, Tibet"

I was trying to capture the street scene in dusty Tingri, but it did not work. I heard voices behind me and turned the monopod around and looked into the eyes of this boy, with his friends behind, walking towards me as if instructed to pose.

Somehow all these young kids look old in Tibet, a combination of the harsh weather and ditto life…
