My old image with new re touching making it B&W with few modifications. Hope this version looks good.

She was selling flowers on the Ghat of Narmada at Maheshwar. I was eager to get her portrait but she was a little bit shy. I convinced her if she doesn't like the image I will delete it in front of her, that helped me to get a pose from her. Her face is having very dry skin because of cold though her eyes are having a warm smile as a little bit lips. My personal favorite portrait. Hope all of you also like it.
