Photographer's Note

Reposted. I tried to fix a few of the harsh light problems by using the Highlight/shadows feature in PS. I also cropped quite a bit closer, as suggested.

We were driving back to Olgii from Hotan Nur and got hungry, so we stopped in to visit with these nice people. They were very hospitable, as is almost everyone that I met in Mongolia. These people lived in a ger (round white tent behind them) with their two teenaged daughters in a green valley with a few more gers in the same valley.

Whenever we visited a ger on my trip, we would automatically be served some milky tea, some deep fried biscuits, and bowls full of: hard yogurty stuff, hard cheese nougat, soft cheese, butter, and creamy butter... all organically homemade from their livestock. Every ger had the exact same things to eat, and surprisingly it was delicious. Most people have a couple of horses, lots of sheep and goats, maybe some camels, and almost always a rabid-looking crazy dog.

There was bright mid-afternoon sunshine when I took this photo, thus the shading. Does anyone have any suggestions on how to get a softer, more colourful shot in bright light like this? I know most of the photoshop tricks, but how about using different features on the camera?
