|I took this self portrait standing on a cliff overlooking the Gurudongmar lake in North Sikkim with a Canon S90 held at my left hand. Gurudongmar Lake is one of the highest lakes in the world, located at an altitude of 17,100 ft (5,210 m). It lies in the province of North Sikkim, India, only some 5 kilometres (3.1 mi) south of Chinese border.|

I really like this, Rajib,
For a self portrait holding the camera at arms length with a certain amount of guess work involved, you've managed a remarkebly good shot.
The colour saturation is excellent, as is the focus and depth of field.
Your outdoor trekking clothing and equipment hanging around your neck, all being in view with the mountains in the background, tell us about the exciting journey you're on.
I like everything about this shot.
The purists would have us all think about cloning out the fill flash reflection on your glasses, but I think it adds to the simplicity of the outdoor adventure you're experiencing and documenting.
Yeah, excellent shot Rajib,

Not many of us have the courage for self-portraits, great colours and sharpness throughout the shot, well done
