    Awais, there are some stunning photos here!

    The first shot is spectacular. Photo 2 of the siblings stands out, as does 14, the spring abstract. The gallery is wonderful - I think it's going to take a bit of time for me to pick my favorites there.

    These. Are. Awesome! I don't want to say this was worth the one year delay, but, WOW. Awais, if you took pictures for National Geographic Magazine (not sure if you might have heard of that publication or not), these would fit right into a story of the peoples and culture there just perfectly. I just looked through your entire gallery.

    I love viewing your work! You have a great eye for capturing the people and their land.


    I don't know where I'm going, but I'm going anyway.

    Wonderful set! The mountain shots are spectacular, #1 in particular and your portraits are wonderful as always. But I think my favorites this time are the ones with a single person in the landscape. I like #4 and #7, and especially #12: shadows and highlights. Although the person walking down the road is very a very small part of the scene, the body language seems to tell a story. Maybe something different to each viewer. The individual and his shadow seem to stand out among the linear elements of the scene. These photos seem to capture a moment in the subject's life. I'm usually someone who prefers photos of nature and scenery but this time the addition of a person makes the scenery even more special. IMHO of course.
