I do like your composition here, the upright format works very well with the boats and buildings creating attractive silhouettes against the most beautiful of evening sky`s.

J'aime beaucoup ce cadrage vertical qui suit la ligne de côte dans une très belle ligne de fuite. La lumière et les couleurs sont superbes et on voit parfaitement le drapeau rouge même si il est dans l'ombre.

It could be good postcard for the guests of Varanasi. Very nice frame for this attractive evening scene.
Marvelous sunset colors, fine vertical format.

Superb shot from the banks of the Ganges. Love the magical colours of the setting sun in the sky and on the water. Top class chobi! Bahoba!

Thank you for these interesting notes.
Your photograph of this holy city is calm and tranquil, with the beauty of the warm highlights of the setting sun.
The contrasts of light and shadow give the impression of a general silhouette, which leads so naturally into the b/g.
The red flag and the figure are two images which stand out, both well placed and offer a slightly different route into the scene.
My warm regards,

Interesting reading your note about this place is the holiest of the seven sacred cities.
Well managed and splendid presentation.

ottimo taglio per accentuare questa bella composizione, le linee verticali interrompono la monotonia del panorama che è ripreso da un'ottima posizione.
I colori sono molto belli e i riflessi ne esaltano tutta la composizione.

Beautiful photo in excellent sunset light. The composition in vertical format is excellent and the reflections in water superb. I was few times in this interesting town of Varanasi (on the way to Renusagar) but never experienced such a beautiful sunset atmosphere there.

Lovely a scene - the beauty of mother nature - that evokes a special atmosphere enveloped by the brilliant golden tone with the reflection makes it even more special glueing the eyes in. Great to see some details in shadow areas, i guess there's nothing can be done to the tall lamp post. Credit to the exquisite exposure control, a precise moment timely shot. Simply delightful to be proud off. Congrats

Wonderful this vertical composition, with the line of houses reflecting in the river, a great beauty that sky, which also stains the river water with the reflection of its colors.
Very good color, perfect lighting and sharpness.
Have a good day.

this photo is an elegant sunset capture, caught very well, in a good vertical framing, which enhances the beauty of the elements of the city, as the houses and the boat on the sacred river.
I like the orange tones, the soft light, and of course, the wonderful reflections on the water.
A great work.
