A nice observation for a rainy, boring day.

I just couldn't help noticing that the shot was twisted clockwise slightly. I've uploaded a mod with explanation. When I straightened it, there was almost nothing of the cyclist on the left, so I cloned out what was left of his rear wheel.

Hello, Sunil. This is a nice bit of photojournalism. However, I am wondering exactly what is happening, and why all those people are standing in the flood water. I'm sure there is a good reason. You have titled this "Umbrellas" and I therefore feel that a crop that eliminates the surrounding area would emphasize the umbrellas more. I realise you will then lose a bit of the context, but concentrating on the subject helps the eye to settle on it, and you have some good colours in the peoples' clothing and highlights on the brollies. The biggest problem with the image is the burnt out whites, especially on the water, some umbrellas and some white shirts. In this rainy condition, I wouldn't have expected the light to be so bright. In my modification I cropped to the group of people, eliminating the buildings, cyclist and white thing on the right side. The person on the path, which I have left, provides a good lead-in to the rest of the crowd. I darkened the image, reduced highlights drastically, increased saturation, cloned blue into the white water areas and also into the bright highlights in the umbrellas.
Pamela.
