This is a shot of a nomad family I was lucky to share some time with. The strenght and the chacarter of this people impressed me a lot. Spending some time with them you cn understand why with just some men and some horses, they could conquer half world.
It was a pitty that I couldn't do the photo without burning a part of it, the light was very difficult to manage on the moment of the shot.

A very nice shot here...I think, of this Mongolian family. I am sure it was quite an experience, and I would not worry too much about the slight blur...it gives it an interesting feel. I think the girl turning toward you and looking at the camera really makes the photo...she has a wonderful face...very strong, yet elegant. The little one on the back is also quite cute. Very nicely done.

Mongolia is extremely fascinating country. Being a student I use to share room with two Mongolian students. What a time it was! A lot of cultural shock! Great picture, but I think could benefit from deeper DOF, to make families faces more sharp.
