Laundry Day

This photo of laundry hanging out to dry in Vārānasi, India, is an example of the rewards of careful composition. "I quickly saw my canvas to create a composition with leading lines," says Your Shot photographer Bhaskar Kundu."But I wanted the decisive moment in the frame. So I waited until I could see people walking along, casting shadows on the hanging clothes against the light." This photo was submitted to Your Shot, our photo community on Instagram.
