I had an interesting dilemma: I saw these two images and struggled to decide which one to pick. However, they are both by the same photographer, Shamila Chaudhary, and I decided to feature the images together. I am fascinated by her graphic sensibility, coupled with compelling uses of light and shadow. Chaudhary has a unique, instinctual eye and I hope to see more of her talent in our Flickr pool.
