[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
As it is the last day of 2006 I wanted to mark what was a wonderful year. I joined this site half way through the year and it has encouraged me to try and improve my photography skills. For the first time I am trying a DSLR camera.

I decided to mark this occassion with a mosiac of shots taken this year. Not necessarily my best shots - just marking so o the places I have been this year

So I just want to wish you all the best for the New Year

Como en el caso de Grzegorz (Red45) tu has decidido obsequiarnos un compendio de bellas imágenes que resumen tu gran contribución en TN durante este año Karan.
Bellas imágenes, muy distintas entre sí y a la vez muy parecidas por poseer tu toque especial como el que has demostrado en todo este tiempo.
Espero continuar viendo todo ese talento y pasión en cada una de tus futuras presentaciones.
Feliz Año 2007... Ricardo

Hello Karan,
Wonderful retrospection. Hard to decide which is my favourite... third one in a first column would be among the top ones :-)
Best greetings,
