A beautiful photo taken in Afghanistan by Polish photographer Monica Bulaj, who is one of today's photographers that I admire the most (and who inspire me most):

What a very beautiful pic.
I wish I would be also such a good photographer.

Does anyone know anything about her technique?
Colors are looking like film, but that could be PP.

Beautiful, looks like a painting, would like to see a larger size version if anyone sees one.

She obviously used a single light source. The rest is done in darkroom, either digital or chemical, by careful dodging-burning.
It looks really like a simple photograph to take, technically.
The merit in there is all artistic: the choice of light, the poses...
