Tashkurgan (Xinjiang Province), China - An officer of the local barracks
Thaskurgan is a small town located at 3500 mts of altitude in the plateau of Pamir. It is on the Karakoram Highway which follows the old "Silk Road" route from China to Pakistan. Travelling from China it is the last town before the border with Pakistan, and 120km over the Khunjerab Pass from Sust in Pakistan, which is the border crossing town. It is almost on the borders of both Afghanistan and Tajikistan, and close to the borders of Kyrgyzstan and Kazakhstan. It is a recommended overnight stop for travellers from China in order to have the best chance of crossing the snow-prone Khunjerab Pass (4700 mts) in daylight.

good one, mister magic lense! did You use a flash ?

Tomas Engström, 21.02.2006 at 23:05h

A wonderful picture! It feels like I'm looking through the cleanest air in the world. Crisp and clear, and the colour tones match very nicely.
I also like your text that tells me interesting things about what I see. The man on the bicycle gives the final touch, such odd clothes for riding a bicycle. Gives me a lot of room for imagination.

Mircea Tiron-Tudor, 22.02.2006 at 7:26h

Very good shot.
The man with the bike is great with a special background.

@Falco. No flashlight: only editing the levels of the face only in Photoshop.

Manuel Teles, 22.02.2006 at 12:27h

Good photo.
If you permit only one thing caused me a little cognitive dissonance, that was the face (I thought it was the dodge tool, but it wasn't, I saw…) comparing whith the hands. Maybe if this was more equity (less stong in the face and a little pronounced on the hands) it would be even a better image.
It is my opinion, but that doesn't mean this is true. Maybe the magic it's exactly this dissonance…

It surprises me much that you even ever travelled to Xinjiang province......:) Isn't that not convenient for one visiting there who cannot speak Chinese?
An outstanding one it does, as usual! You should have your own gallery section here...

Ron Couwenberg, 22.02.2006 at 15:12h

This is truely an amzing detailed pic.

D. Ynoche, 22.02.2006 at 18:46h

wonderful.... the expression of the face. the "uniform", the situation, the backgound.
reality in almost irreality.... saluti D.

Sissi Blume, 22.02.2006 at 19:23h

It`s soooo crazy.It reminds me of a special kind of movie.I love it,there is so much in between.

Jacqueline Chay, 23.02.2006 at 11:33h

Nice pic Serg, but he looks a bit too superimposed to me maybe a bit too much photoshop for my liking.

Just saw this picture. it looks like it had a little photoshop or something. if so, would u tell me what u did ? if not, would u tell me what u did ;-) !?

kind regards, Kubi

Sergio Pessolano, 25.02.2006 at 1:05h

Many of you asked me about the editing of this photo. Well, nothing special: I only selected the face (which was very dark) and I adjusted the levels and improved the brightness inside that selection only. So I obtained a "flashlight" effect. More the usual editing for all my photos: KPT Equalizer to improve the sharpness, Neat Image to remove the noise.

Allan Thompson, 25.02.2006 at 4:48h

Great composition!!!! The main subject is as big as life against that mountain in the background !!

Hans Solcer, 25.02.2006 at 7:55h

great picture again!

Dániel Kisgergely, 25.02.2006 at 17:00h

Super shot.

Balazs Pataki, 2.12.2006 at 20:41h

Strange face... neither Han Chinese or Uigur. He has almost Caucasian character.

Wilhelm H., 13.03.2007 at 18:10h

Strange Mountain Bike. Very Vivid

Francesco Della Santa, 14.04.2009 at 23:02h
