I really think you did a great job seeing this shot. The three headscarves, each a different color, but similar in their height, side by side. Too good to pass up. You were in a great position. I would like to see a little more pavement beneath their feet, I think, although it's not at all easy to get everything just right when it's a one time chance. The other things I tried in a workshop. The histogram for the photo looked like it could have some exposure issues (minor) and I also thought this is one of the few times where a square format might work better than horizontal. So I am posting a workshop on it. Congratulations on getting such a good shot though.

Great shot. Stands out in the thumbnails. The soft colors of the headdresses make the image quite pleasing. Sense of motion in the subjects is well captured, especially set against the strong lines and forms of the castle-like structure. I agree with Cliff, a little more groundspace under the feet might make the overall composition more balanced. A very good crop in Cliff's workshop brings even more attention to the interesting subjects.

Well spotted, and well done in capturing the three women with their scarves almost identical in shape blowing behind them. I too like the workshop that Cliff has produced, mainly because it positions the focus point using the rule of thirds. Although the rule is not always applicable, in this case its everything. The slight adjustment in saturation and contrast has also worked really well.
