3rd Place: Moshiur Rahman, Bangladesh
Description: This photo was taken from Ankara Ulus Melike Hatun Camii. I was sitting there after my Namaz and I was looking up and seeing the beautiful art of the Masque. While looking I realized something which takes a very deep message for Muslim during the Ramazan, ‘We are nice while together, sharing and do charity.
In my view, the middle big chamber of the photo is the Holy Ramazan and the smalls besides it are Muslims. We surrounded the Ramazan to make it beautiful with sharing, togetherness, our charity, etc.
