Pinaki- You captured the action well of the pilgrims making their way to the temple. With all the wonderfully bright colors of India, I might have liked seeing the color version of this image (though I wonder if it may have been too complex along with all the signage surrounding the pilgrims?). There are some overly bright whites in the flower necklaces on the two men on the far right and left and the truck in the left that could possibly be toned down. B   Posted: 07/12/2024 09:01:05

You are right about the flowers , but couldn't figure out a way to tone down on specific areas of image. Need to do some research.   Posted: 07/12/2024 11:13:16

Interesting subject. I, too, would have liked to see the color version. For me, India is all about colors from most of the images I've seen over the years. Totallly regret that I never had the opporotunity to get there.   Posted: 07/12/2024 10:12:22
