When you arrive to Laos you can feel the French colonial heritage everywhere. The classic European architecture and delicious baguettes, the old vintage cars and old French coins on the markets.
I shot this view in Bokeo province, Huay Xay town.

The enhanced orange tone gave a fabulous unique view on the veranda looking over the river scenery.
Palm tree in a very sharp sight - every leaf shown .

Hello Serghei ,
I don't know if it looks especially french ;) , but this is a splendid picture . Like especially the plunging perspective , the outstanding composition , and the fine colors provided by the soft light .

a typical tropical scene, with the palm trees and all this lush vegetation surrounding the house.
Also this warm light recalls the tropical places as the houses with large balconies all round.
A nice composition with the colonial architecture of the houses fiting very well into the natural scenery.

This place was where I also entered Laos so many years ago. You have captured the lingering French atmosphere very nicely in this fine view. I guess I was too busy and excited to really notice the French heritage at the time. I do remember changing money at the black market rate at the office of an airline owned by one of the princes. At the airport I met injured American soldiers and a few CIA agents, obvious from their sunglasses.

what a beautiful composition of nature and a beautiful, impressive architecture. I like your point of view and an excellent depth of field. Wonderfully executed image. Perfectly well done and great an executed picture. I like it a lot. Thanks for sharing.
Sometimes is a hard decision where to go. I love Rome too, and I wish to travel to every corner of the world.
All the best,

Je ne sais pas si c'est typiquement français mais, en tout cas, c'est très beau et magnifiquement situé. Tu as réalisé une excellente photo de ce lieu dans une très bonne composition verticale.

Enjoy the weekend - regards Brian.

very pale the colours of the image with the touch of the French colonial atmosphere to be spread yet in the country.I like the vertical format of the shot as the warm light of it.
Have a good weekend,Danos

I like how the photo is "going down"....
The different kind of buildings, the soft light, all nice, also the palmtree, makes it exotic !
What a nice place, must be a beautiful country.

Zdravo Serghei.The first thing that strikes me are the warm colours where even the green is gentle to the eye. Then of course the elegant and well preserved architecture.Nicely compact image. Best wishes. Klaudio.
