    What a coincidence, I have also had a low key titled the same. But yours leaves mine in dust, Rajasekar. Hope to see this get golden!

Your mastery with controlling rim lighting is amazing. Your image is superb. This is a beautiful low key image with staying power and I expect we will see this in gold very soon.

Congratulations on your POTD, Abdulsalam.

Rajasekar, I agree with Kathy, less is more in this case! The lighting really makes a statement. The profile lines formed by the light are very intriguing, I like the position of the hands & how it just touches the edge of the neck. Great work! Congratulations on your POTD. Sara:)
