Great holmertz 2020-04-08 1:14

Hello Steve,
It's a very good portrait. Exposure and sharpness are perfect. I think the priest was fully aware of the perfectly matching colours. He must have done this many times before. I wonder how much he charged you for the photo? ;-)
Best regards,
Gert

Default To holmertz: how much?

Hi Gert, He surely had done this many times, no question. Although we didn't see vast numbers of tourists there, just a handful of tour group busses. My hazy recollection is that the priests at Lalibela didn't demand payment for photos, even those that were very accommodating (like this one - he even put on different outfits for us, some very elaborate and others, like this one, very simple). There is a tourist fee to enter the area of the churches and I think that probably covers it, although I think they "accepted" donations...

cheers,

steve
