Its a magnificiant pic to start with. The pic is so clear and so saturated.
U prudently cut the facial expression to ponder over the activities.
The terakotta work of Bishunupur is suparb. Hopeing such pic for the coming days.
I met u almost two or three years ago at Bookfair. Probably u cannot remind. I am also a Trek Earth member since early november. It gives me much pleasure that I can see your more picture in TE.
Again your Travel book regarding photography is excellant.
I cant resist myslef to add your name in favourite list.
Have a nice day.
