I took my winning photo with my Nikon D750 in Cholistan. I felt she had a very mysterious kind of beauty and that her eyes had lots of stories to tell. Her face was covered just like a full moon in the clouds and I was desperate to capture her.

I was so excited when found out that I won this contest, I can’t Eexplain my feelings right now other than by saying thanks to the Agora Community for giving me this kind of happiness. With the prize money I will upgrade my gadgets and continue my photography journey.”
