    Nice set of travel photos.
    I especially like the old ones. I also think the monks eating/drinking near the end is amazing.
    And I wonder how many of us would subject our cameras to the colour cloud conditions (I suppose it could have been a long lens)?

    The 2011 competition is open to anyone (although not free):

    It's interesting that he's gone exclusively black & white.

    I thought the same thing ... since I'm sure in the monasteries there is plenty of amazing color.
