Again almost neighbours today !
I like the clouds, they are contrasting so well againt the deep blue high altitude sky, but the view is nice at ground level too, very luminous rendering on the house and surroundings.
Have a nice day JY

This picture makes me smile because of the cheerful colors. I like the fluffy clouds above the white and orange house, with the prayer flags on the balcony. Very nice composition.
Greetings from Denmark

This is excellent Hisashi, the use of the wide lens conjugate with your maestria in PP makes the difference. Such an exotic place for me .. hmm i would eat this chamallow cloud :-)

Olá Hisashi, fantastic effect from those clouds, indeed. They enhance the color contrasts of this image and give more power to the exotic place. Great shot, wonderful spot surrounded by the mountains.
have a nice day,

a pleasure to travel throught the word with your gallery Hisashi.
the 17/40 and the angle choised make a splendid perspective giving strongness at the cloudy sky

Isnt it great working with poarizer. The sky and the clouds mostly works out great just like your photo here. The wideangel makes the house leaning even more. Pleasant photo indeed!

This is a very beautiful picture that shows us the special Ladakhi architecture, the beautiful nature and also gives us the feeling of being on a high altitude. I think this last because of that great sky. Your picture has real nice colours.
I have nice memories of my visit to Alchi too.
Best regards, Paul

Have a nice day.
