Capturing light. Sunlight streams through the smoke in a kitchen in a adobe in a village in Atlas mountains in Morocco.

We went to a Berber village in Atlas mountains to see a tribal village. They seems to lead a very simple life with their farm animals and the small plots where they grow their vegetables. We tasted local bread, drank their very sweet tea and listened to their stories. It was a very interesting and eye-opening trip.

This was the only place in Morocco where we were mobbed by trinket sellers who seems to follow our bus.

Oh... I like this. You've handle the light situation, tho difficult very well. A great feel of the flooding light, yet just enough details in the highlights to suggest form and shape, just not some black patch without details. Somes dogging could be added, but then again, not really necessary..)) matter of taste, that's all.

Hi Sunil,
A great capture of these sunlight streams mixing up with smoke and producing this splendid effect. You found the perfect timing and place. Perfect exposure management and details can be observed even in the darkest areas. Quite a neat presentation.
Well done,

Francis Xavier

Hi Sunil,

Sorry to have missed this excellent photo!

I like the control of yur camera of you got, here! As Denis said, we have a strong feeling of the flooding light.
Excellent work, my friend!


Hi,Sunil.This is a art photo where you have have shown the light illuminting different objects and the change in their character when it comes in contact with them. Different textures and the diagonally placed rays add to the visual impact. Cheers.
