Looking peaceful enough. Or so I hope. Must have been quite a journey.

I like the way the colors contrast here.

Does it really go into the gray stuff like it shows?? pretty wild!

I'm not really sure I follow what parts of this image have been desaturated. Seems like this would have been much more powerful in all color.

I could think of better places to be than inside an aircraft over Afghanistan. Great contrast between the arid and the fertile.

There's some great colour in this photo, but perhaps it's slightly undersaturated? Maybe try boosting the contrast in it which will bring out more colour too. Anyways, still a really nice shot. 7 from me :)

Ugh, not good memories... Looks pretty flat for Afghanistan. I wonder where this was taken. I was in laghman province.

Great view. Interesting contrast between the cultivated fields and the barren beyond.
