    I captured this layered moment during sunrise along the banks of the Yamuna River in Delhi, India. This boy was thinking silently, and visitors were enjoying the loud musical chirping of thousands of seagulls. The early morning golden light from the east mixed with the western blue light, creating a ethereal atmosphere. I am a regular visitor here and have photographed this place for the past three years. Now, many national and international photographers have begun visiting too...

    Outstanding scene, Navin! I love the mood of this photograph while this young boy appears deep in thought surrounded by the chaos of birds, perhaps a visual metaphor for the thoughts in his head. Nicely seen!
