I like the effect this rangOli is producing. The lamps are strategically placed. More than even the rangOli, which is quite good, the photograph is very well taken to give a great feeling of joy. Overall, a lovely piece of art. This year, I decided not to grade anyone. shAlinI ma'am, your enthusiasm and participation makes you already a winner in my opinion.

Regards! - mOhana

Thanks for taking so much time and taking a deep look on the work. as per placing of diyas goes i have kept more in the semi circle to give effect of sun and at the end of the rays to give the effect of rays... As far as photo is concern i had tried to cover the hole area giving a brighter look, although i was thinking that light has dominated the rangoli work... but thanks for appreciating!!
