[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Prayer Flags outside the Potala in Lhasa, Tibet. Probably a boring shot for a lot of people but I was drawn to the colors and overlapping patterns here and it brought back fond memories of a fantastic experience.

-Shot in RAW
-Adjusted levels
-Increased contrast in curves, using linear contrast preset
-Resized & USM

Nice, colourful chaos in this shot. Well metered and framed. Good work to fill the whole shot with the prayer flages, showing none of the surroundings.
