Congratulations and a fine image.  My old aunties regularly traveled in the middle east and far east and I have seen many similar images that you display here.

Re: Me and my old 620 won a challenge!

Thanks a lot for the nice replies! And by the way, the image was taken on a very "touristic" camel trip. I got this and some other fine images from the trip, in addition to a stomach problem after eating a meal served. I named it Faraos revenge....

That is a fantastic shot! Remember

the old saying, the photographer is where the talent is, the camera is only your tool.  That was a great shot for sure, great job with the composition.  It really made you feel like you were there.
