Raju A K  Age 52, Bengaluru  “I wanted to emphasise on the beautiful curve of the bonnet, which was perfectly brought out byt the wide 60mm lens I used.

As did the raindrops spread evenly across the car.”  Camera: Hasselblad CFV 39  Lens: Carl Zeiss 60mm Distagon f/3.5 synchro Compur  Exposure: 1/30sec, f/9.5, ISO 100
