i really want to push myself to meet deadlines and enter more competitions. Could have done a lot more with this, but i went start to finish in about 15 minutes, so not expecting much in terms of score. Was a rush to try squeeze this into the schedule. Thanks grandma!

ps: here's the original. Would be interesting to know if someone thought it was one of the others.

Beautiful portrait Devinder, I am sure your grandma is proud!
Your processing and exposure is impeccable here, although imho i would have cropped it differently and gone closer.

You kept some great detail, and having the crucial area of light and dark of the shot range directly at the face, between the blackness of the void and the white of the garment.

Perhaps the wearing of white in some cultures represents the aspect of reflective mourning, as opposed to black in some other cultures, even though it may just be a scarf it has a quasi-religious feel to it. All in all, very well done.
