Morning Light | Photograph by Sarmistha Bera
#YourShotPhotographer Sarmistha Bera captured this morning scene in Kolkata, Bengal, India. This photo was selected for the November 16, 2018 edition of our Photos of the Week series.
“This is a lovely slice of life, Sarmistha! The light, especially the highlight on our character is completely stunning. I stopped in my tracks when I first saw it. I love the layers of laundry behind her, giving us a sense of place. Normally, I would advise against center weighted compositions because works so well because of how her highlight breaks through the negative space on the bottom half of the frame. Beautiful work!” — @natgeoyourshot Associate Photo Editor Kristen McNicholas (@kemcnicholas)
