Travel Photo Contest – Anil Sud
Just after sunset, I was photographing at a Buddhist monastery in Dehradun, India and was intrigued by this pair of windows which were originally intended to be the subject of my architectural shot. Since the light was very low, I used a tripod and carefully composed how I wanted the lines and shapes to come together. A passing monk approached the scene and I was planning to wait patiently for him to exit until I saw his figure advance toward the window. Hastily, I reset the camera settings to freeze his stance. It was then that I realized his presence was the missing element needed to bring the image home.
