Khukri seller

The streets of Kathmandu are filled with people selling all kinds of wares and knick-knacks, including the famous Khukri knives used by the Ghurka warriors. Ghurkas are said to be the toughest soldiers on the planet, handpicked to serve in the British army. Some also end up in the Malaysian and Singaporean armed forces as well. Somehow, I just wasn't satisfied with the original picture I posted here, so did some tweaking in Photoshop and produced the main shot you see, with a desaturated background to make the sellers stand out a little more. What do you think -- which do you prefer?Nikon D200, AF-S Nikkor 18-200mmVR.Posted by Picasa
