Food steaming in the Dalat markets in the Central Highlands of Vietnam. This charming small city has a great central market, with many tasty delights to try.
The smells are like an invitation to eat.

I was about to say "238 hits and no comments" etc. :)
anyway - I love steam in photography, I think it's one of those elements that creates, literally, the mood of a place and of a moment. I remember a picture on these pages taken under a bridge in Japan, in a tiny eatery, full of steam coming from the ramen pots, that was basically more a hint than a real description of a scene... and yet it was in that hint that lay the power of the image.
I love the way the light hits the steam here but maybe I would have moved a few inches to the left to blind it a bit with the hat..? I don't know, just an idea :)
