Rakesh,
Thank you for forcing me to break out of my habitual thoughts of what certain times of year look like in my mind's eyes. I have never pictured New Year's like this. I have never pictured myself going to market on New Year's Day carrying my wares on my head to make sure I made a living. You succinctly capture a moment and bring the viewer into a new frame of mind. Thank you for hitting the "pause button" on my life for a moment. Congrats....

Rakesh, I officially declare you as the Marvin Gohlke judged, Grand Prize winner. There is more feeling, emotion, beauty, creativity, and technical expertise in this shot, than all the rest of the first prize winners put together. It is magnificant, a standard to which I aspire to. Don't let the approbation, or lack of, by the powers that be on this site dampen your spirit, or influence your creativity. "To thine self be true." Keep up the great work, Rakesh!!
