Photographer's Note

Dr Ram Baran Yadav (center) was today sworn in as Nepal's first president. This shot was taken a few days ago when he was elected, the tower in the back is the makeshift parlament building.

I'm trying to develop my style in contemporary photojournalism and always like to capture as much of the whole scene, the story and the feel of the situation. Think it worked ok here, the strong backlight was tricky to work with though...
