Honorable mention for this week's Reader Sunshots series, "Earth, Wind or Fire," goes to Jay Shermann for the picture titled "Pilgrim in Kathmandu." Shermann shot this photo outside the Pashupatinath Temple, which lies just on the outskirts of Kathmandu. Here is a critique by Baltimore Sun director of photography Robert Hamilton: "The photographer chose a good angle to photograph the subject taking advantage of the available light, which not only accented the features of the subject but the billowing smoke as well. His creative approach added to the exotic feel of the picture."
