Morning Reflection

While on a stroll with friends one morning in a village near the Nilambur forest in Kerala, India, Your Shot member Noushad PT noticed the sun streaming through the coconut trees, creating a reflection in the flooded paddy. “I found an opportunity for a perfect black-and-white composition,” he writes. “I added a human element, prioritized the reflection, created symmetry, kept the sky aside—and captured it.”

Noushad PT's picture recently appeared in Your Shot's Daily Dozen.
