[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
A Tibetan woman looks out over Lhasa, once the capital of her country Tibet. The modern buildings are for the Chinese, who invaded over her peaceful country over 50 years ago. Everything is for the Chinese, nothing for the Tibetans. No freedom of speech, and often no freedom of religion. Their lands are taken away, their life is no longer theirs.

Hi Gloria,
I like your composition and your pov. The colours are clear and sharp. The lady is probably looking in forlorn hope that things will change, unfortunately that will not happen. The world at large is to scared of the sleeping dragon that is China. Well done and TFS.
