Cameras are rather scarce in the Mongolian countryside, so when my host family in the Darkhad Valley in Khuvsgul Province found out I had one, we spent an entire afternoon posing with the horses in every combination possible.

loved the story and the mood of the photos. this image particularly striked me... though i would have done it slightly differently :) Imagine getting rid of all the sand and sky details which bring no value to the photo and cut the image at horizon border. Get extremely closer to the horse, see its face details, the nose pores and expression as it tries to escape out of the photo (at the edge of the bottom of the photo), see the knots around the legs (what a disturbing sight...) and more of the dusty breakout from the background :)

similarly, for image 22, with a great funny and catchy story and an astonishing local home design, I would have stopped the lens at the limits of the top-painting and left-TVset and gain extra space for the armchair details :)
