I like this shot because it depicts what the atmosphere was like that morning when we sailed down the Ganges towards Varanasi. At the time, sailing into the unknown, I was feeling calm, peaceful and relaxed with a sense of expectation for what we were about to see and experience in Varanasi - the most holy of cities for Hindus and reputed to be between 5 - 6 thousand years old!
I saw the boat ahead of us approaching the wierd looking tree and waited until I thought was the right moment before pressing the shutter button.
I haven't applied much processing here apart from cropping the top and bottom to put the boat on a third, burning in a little bit and adding the border.
I'd like to know if you think I could have improved the shot with the processing in any way.
