    #1 and #4 are both excellent, but #4 (urtz) is absolutely incredible….

    The color Mongolian Ger photo is wonderful, but wasn’t it already used as a cover of Newsweek?  I like the B/W Mongolian gers photo because it really reflects a “sense of place”. The flaming gas crater would be hard to place if you hadn’t labeled it “Turkmenistan”. I’m less familiar with the Mogolian Urtz.

    I love Mongolian Urtz Winter Star Trails

    I’m voting for Mongolian Urtz Winter Star Trails…although I also like B/W Mongolia Gers.  The gas crater is pretty cool too but wouldn’t pick it as the best photo of the bunch.

    Frances – you are right, it was used as the cover for Newsweek (good memory!); but that is somewhat immaterial for my current purposes….I guess I should have also been a bit more explicit – it doesn’t necessarily need to tell you *what* place you are in, so much as convey the sense of any particular place….

    Duly noted!

    I like the fourth one.  (winter).

    I think the gas crater and urtz work best for conveying a sense of place.

    Cool. Those seem to be leading the charge.

    Mongolian Urtz Winter Star Trails, mainly because of the amount of what is going on.The star rotating showing time and the flames behind the tent.

    Mary – Thanks for adding your thoughts! It isn’t often that I run across another Rowat. :)

    I know I’m a bit late on this but I love the Indian Woman Farmer. I think it’s the contrasting textures
