    Beautiful light and color and what a lovely, graceful monument. Very pleasing and I love the way the "pieces" are open to the sky.

All praise to the Almighty.

I stand Humbled, Honored and a bit lucky too. I mean there were SO MANY exceptional images from so many vastly talented and inspiring photographers!

Winning a GP is overwhelming to say the least. I am indebted to the continued support that so many of you have afforded me all along, without which I could not have achieved this. You all inspire!!

Special thanks to the Judges for giving it a nod and considering the image GP worthy and also to every member of Team BP for providing us this platform to exhibit our efforts.

I dedicate this win to my dear dear parents, without whom I literally would not be here or actually anywhere, LOL. They are the reason of my existence!!!

It will take some time for the win to really sink in. And thereafter, I realize, the real challenge begins, the challenge of CONSISTENCY.

Thanks for your kind felicitations, very much appreciated.

Dave, the four main petals of the monument represent the four provinces (Balochistan, Khyber-Pakhtunkhwa, Punjab, and Sindh), while the three smaller petals represent the three territories (Gilgit-Baltistan, Azad Kashmir and the Federally Administered Tribal Areas). The Monument has been designed to reflect the culture and civilization of the country and depicts the story of the Pakistan Movement, dedicated to those who sacrificed themselves for future generations.
