Sailing down the Ganges at Varanasi I spotted these men walking towards the burning ghat - I think they must have been on their way to attend a cremation ceremony due to their clothing as, for Hindus, the traditional color of mourning is white.
I followed their progress along the ghat and took the shot when they passed below the sari blowing in the wind.
The shot was taken in bright, harsh afternoon sunlight and I applied some selective levels adjustment to the white clothing to reduce the glaring, burnt out look.
Thanks for looking and any advice on how I could improve the shot would be appreciated.
