Remote flashes can be triggered by flash, right? No TTL metering though.

Similar, with much more zoom & less high ISO performance.

ISO 800 1/4000 sec f/8.0 28mm eq.
Interesting perspective, I like that you did it with no flash.

I met a guy doing travel photography, trying to make a living at it &
managing OK from what I could tell. He used a P&S because he liked to
travel obscure places in India & be unobtrusive. He had lots of nice
work. Anything is possible. There are billions of stunning photos out
there that a cell phone could capture.

Agreed. However colour resolution may have been lost.

I agree, P&S have the advantage of being discreet and easy to carry. I
own one, it is a tool in the box.
Different circumsances call for different tools.
