The early morning train has just arrived at Kathgodam and most tourists have moved out, looking for taxis to take them to their destinations. This is a tricky affair, with bargaining called for in varying degrees.
The lady on the right has reasons to be concerned, with her husband having gone to do the haggling. Will he get a vehicle that will make a make a difference to her comfort for the next few days? Or will they get cheated? With lots of travelling needed to be done on hilly roads, she has every right to hope for the best.

I like the composition of your shot very much.
The lady in red is strongly placed in the frame, whilst the converging lines of train and station draw the viewer deeper into the scene.
There appears to be a yellowy colour cast. Is it something you have added purposely?
Also, a white halo around the building and figure suggest a little too much sharpening.
I have done a little w/s removing the colour cast.
See what you thin.
Have a great day,

You managed to create a clever composition here: the train on the left powerfully adds depth to the picture, while the lady on the right forces the attention of the viewer to a completely different direction, making him/her wonder what is going on there.
Also a very clever contrast between the cold color of the train and the warm color of the woman's dress (reinforced by the red shirt of the man nearby).
Very good job!
