Description

(Finalist JUNE '09 - Catch All)
(Winner Second Place July '09 - Travel & Place).

This is Prime Minister's Office here in Islamabad. The building was decorated on the eve of Eid Milad-un-Nabi (Birthday of Prophet Muhammad, peace be upon him) in October last year. Tripods were not allowed and hence the image taken hand-held.

Post processing included sharpening, perspective adjustment in PSCS 2 and Flood filter.

Have a beautiful day !!
