This image immediately caught our eye. We like how the huge flag fills the frame, gracefully moving from top left to bottom right, almost in concert with the water currents. Shooting this scene from above gives a nice perspective, allowing the photographer to compose all of the elements perfectly and emphasizing the size of the Ganges River. The little girl stands almost triumphantly, with ownership, on her island of wood. The small detail of the boat in the background helps balance the image, adding an element to an area that would have otherwise been a bit empty.
