Photographer's Note

Registan square in Samarkand must be the most photographed place in all of the "-stan" countries combined. The buildings from left to right are Ulughbek Medressa(contr. 1420), Tilla Kari Medressa (1660), and Sher Dor Medressa(1636). I did not have to wait long for the square to be empty, it was ramadan and foot traffic was light everywhere, there is an "entry fee" just to enter the square for foreigners, and since I seemed to be the only foreigner in the country at the time, they spotted me quickly. Taken late afternoon, I darkened and partially desaturated the sky.

I will add another Canon 20D experiment to Workshop.
