Picture K of course.

dazzling 05-13-2013 05:27 AM

K is a very nice picture but I voted for D. Simply because its a great moment which we don't usually see of Sheikh Mohammed and AlJalila together.

MartinaM 05-14-2013 04:51 AM

Picture K - I just love that photo

HereditaryPrincess 05-18-2013 04:56 PM

I voted for picture J, but I also like pictures K, D and H. :smile:

Roslyn 05-23-2013 12:57 AM

I voted for A, because I think it captures a happy moment and it makes me wonder what they were talking about, and I like the composition and the fact all faces are engaged and animated, and I love Rania. I was tempted to vote for I, because I adored Maxima's outfit, and also H, because it captures a lovely moment with Daniel and the little child.
