Great image! This is how National Geographic wanted pictures to look in the days before it was reaonably possible to do so. Everything is revealved, tonality and colors are gorgeous. And it's got red fabric in it, tada! And it's very engaging. And it contains some interesting stories and even a hint of danger and suspense. I like pictures like this a lot. It's totally successful in every way and a delight to behold. Not just a good illustration, but artful as well. If I went to Tajikistan and this was the only good picture I got, I would be happy.
