    What drew me into this photo was the serenity of the woman standing ready to go into the mosque. Her slightly bowed head, combined with the blur of other people and the grand setting make for a powerful picture. Her position in the frame is especially well done because of the blank wall behind her head, you can clearly see her body language.
