A bunch of young Kashmiri girls were having fun, sprinkling water on each other at the Shalimar Bagh. This girl in particular with her deep inquisitive eyes, a hint of a smile caught my eye.
Srinagar is a city of lakes and rivers, lush wild gardens of lotus and water lilies, Mughal Gardens spreading along the lake side in a patterned beauty. No destination is quite so romantic. It was here they laid, with great love and care, Srinagar's many formal, waterfront gardens, now collectively known as the Mughal Gardens: Shalimar Bagh, Nishat Bagh, Chasm-e-Shahi. The Mughals aptly called Kashmir "Paradise On Earth".

A nice portrait of a somewhat reluctant subject (not too reluctant apparently).

This enigmatic expression, between curious and amicable of the shot it does that I have fallen in love with the photography and with the girl. Good shot.

The face of the Kashmiri girl whom you photographed is so impressive to me — especially her intelligent eyes.
I have a suggested workshop showing the way I love to appreciate your successful capture. Hope you agree with my different way to view.

A very nice closeup, Bringing out the Quizzing look of the girl!..Perhaps, she is all happy about the attention she is getting from your camera, at the same time little perplexed about it!.

Surely you'ce come a long way, but your eye of faces & portraits were still then, as it is now. Wonderful glance of the girl in the centre. If this was today, you would have cropped & done some PP work on it, to make this more visually appealing...but the face would remasin just as beautiful as here
