Went back through my Tibet photos and noticed this one, which I hadn't paid much attention to previously. These are prayer flags at a nunnery, in the remote upper Drolma Valley.

HI David
The shot is well composed showing us those dark mountains against those white clous.
The colored flags add another dimension giving it signs of life around.
Lovely work

Hello David,I like your composition & DOF I like the sharpness throughout the image.You have certainly caught the motion of the wind.Though this appears to be a remote area the prayer flags tells us that people live here.

Stunning photo - impeccable clarity, panorama, and juxtaposition with the colorful flags.

Hello David;
I like your point of view in the photo,TFS Regards.

Hello David, I like the way that the prayer flags have produced the effect of cutting the picture into segments.We can almost hear the sound of the flapping flags!
Lovely sharpness and colours.Your idea worked really well,tfs.
Regards Jean.

Hi David,
What a striking photo! Superb POV! Very interesting to see these so light prayer flags in foreground before the strong mountains. Excellent contrast!
Very good clarity and sharpness too! Very well done! Annie

Hi David
I thought they were clothes lines. Very original shot and very colorful too. I am impressed by that valley and the depth of field you obtained, the photo being sharp from foreground to background.
Nicely done

HI David

Nice shot here. The flags almost look like tears in the photo. Not a bad thing at all. What a wonderful place to be.


I've seen similar pictures from Tibet and Nepal, but this one is really striking.
Beautiful moment captured, great POV and details.
Very impressive:)
Thanks for sharing,
