Wow, the Gauri Gill photo of the two girls is haunting. And the color in the Nandini Valli picture is amazing.

Is it coincidence that two are from India, or am I missing an Indian connection?

I think it seems that the organizers had decided to select 2 photographers from India and 2 from Canada, for this year.
