A Perfect Flutter

I took this shot at Gangasagar Mela. The Gangasagar Mela is one of the biggest religious festivals of India. The patterns formed by the drying saree in the wind, as well as the light and shadow play, attracted my attention. I was able to complete it by adding the presence of a lone man.

This photo is a finalist in the Mobile category of our 15th Annual Photo Contest. See all 60 finalists here.
