This one needs to be watched on bright screen
petrol station on the border of Western Sahara where in the middle of nowhere you find three stations because of cheaper fuel ; tax free as a incentive to draw Moroccan settlers to occupied territories and change ethnic proportions.

This is one amazing image. The composition is just stunning and so are the colors. I like how the man in the background is looking away and we can also notice catchlights in his eyes which make the image even more powerful. Good work!

I agree with sohrab. Seems like a scene from a motion picture. The colours and the ambience are perfect. Very good!!!

W ciekawe miejsca docierasz. Sahara Zach. zawsze mnie fascynowala bo bardzo niewiele wiemy o tym kraju. Twoje kadry sa rozpoznawalne na pierwszy rzut oka. Interesujace, podoba mi sie! Pozdrawiam!

Marvellous colour contrasts, Swiatek, the orange draws you in, no escape ;-)
Interesting shot, there's intensity in the man's gaze... as if something were about to happen.

Stunning. Great spare compo that really stretches this orange moment...

Wow! What a mood and color! I am quite ready to believe that it is not Morocco but only you who can produce color like this. Here the composition is very strong, with the diagonal line elements adding depth, and the pair of men producing a dramatic tension. The background man's eyes are really fantastic on my screen. Terrific photo.
