We were coming back to Dhaka from our village town and we were waiting for a ferry to come back from the other side at a river crossing. The sky was beautiful as you can see. But I didn’t see that far end of the scene from the road.
I wanted a scene with the sky on top, the river in the middle, and a small part of the ground at the bottom. So I walked a few steps away from where I was, and I discovered this beautiful place. Had I not walked away from my folks, I wouldn’t have taken this shot and I wouldn’t have felt satisfied to have taken this shot.
The lesson here is to always listen to your instinct and walk around for a better shot.
The birds and the dog’s head weren’t in the viewfinder when I was composing the shot. In fact, I didn’t know a dog made a guest appearance in the shot until I was going through the photos in post-processing workflow. Funny how you can discover things that you’ve captured without your knowledge, right?
