We were staying with a nomadic family in Central Mongolia. This was the young girl of the family playing outside the family ger at sunset. Each ger has it's own stove for warmth and cooking. The smoke from the ger made a great backdrop.

Excellent shot. I love the mood of this image. Was this a flash firing in the back. Or some kind of other light?

Thanks! I did use an external flash - I wanted to have a little illumination on the smoke coming from the ger.

I love this shot. Not only did the smoke make a great backdrop, it also provided the perfect background for rim-lighting the young girl's silhouette. Great shot! Congratulations!
