Absolutely LOVE this one, Rakesh!!! I knew it was yours the minute I saw it. Beautiful colors and curves and the black background you've chosen for this one plays a very important role in this wonderful composition filling the space with that black "emptiness" which as you look at the photograph seems to gain volume. Great work!!!
