Beyond Borders...

Environmental degradation, overpopulation, refugees, narcotics, terrorism, world crime movements, and organized crime are worldwide problems that don't stop at a nation's borders.

My Spotlighted Images

Bettina from Los Angeles, United States

Beautifully done. The color shot at center is really great, and evocative of fire. Your barbed wire is very poignant. The world is a prison for many, maybe even most.

Good evening, Pavan,
It looks fantastic and very impressive. The glowing sun as the center, bounded behind a barbed wire fence. It is a masterpiece. For that I give you 5 stars ***** The accompanying words to be very impressive and reflect the truth. I wish you a pleasant evening and all the best.
Sincerely, Christel

Fred from Manila, Philippines

Beautiful use of the barbed wire there. I think the sun had too much contrast in it? That's just me though.

It's interesting sad that the more we grow as humans, the more things we could think of in harming one another.

Absolutely brilliant. Sometimes I think that my comments might be lost in the sea of thoughts and the crowd but then it's irresistable for me to not speak out my thoughts. This is a brilliant shot. And all your work in the past has been so.
