While the food was being prepared in our 'guesthouse,' I took the liberty of getting a few pics with my tripod, as the kitchen was fascinating, though rudimentary. One of Bapo's friendly dogs was taking a nap, and I thought I'd go for a sort of environmental portrait of the dog. Unfortunately, there was a small table slightly in the way, visible in the lower right. However, due to constraints of the kitchen's size and available focal length, I couldn't easily do away with it. But I still like this one.

Everything counts here, even the tip of the table. on purpose or not, the entire picture gives a sense of hard work, rough environment. The rustic look and lack of space add to that feeling and at the same time the sleeping dog and the fire gives us a sense of some shelter from the whatever is outside, cold weather or an harsh existence.
As far as i'm concern keep the table!

wonderful, very moody and atmospheric. the title emphasizes this. it has a lovely narrative, and i feel as if the home owner might be about to return to our view any second now

Great shot!. I like the rays coming through the walls and how illuminates the scene. There are some shadows in some places that makes the shot very special and real. The colors and contrast are just fine. Excelent work. Lovely picture with fantastic mood.

Great photo; your low vantage point works great for this capture and I think it would beat the pants off of one from a higher perspective. The mixture of the sun's rays and the smoke add a very rustic/earthy feel to this capture.

Great shot. I have been to places like this in China too and you have captured the mood perfectly. I can smell the smoke and taste the tea!

A nice idea here showing the dog and the interesting scene. The light above the fire and the firelight itself are nice touches.

Great atmosphere and well executed shot. Love the light creeping in from outside. Could have been even better had you managed to catch someone tending to the food on the fire, maybe?

Très intimiste comme photo
Et aussi comme une vue documentaire
