one of the best photo i have ever seen ....very suiting and may be, this photo tells a story about the life of farmers or workers who give out their whole time to earn little money, lovely moment captured... great work love the early sunrise and an amazing silhouette keep it up

A great impressive picture, but I can help but wonder what it would have looked like an hour or so earlier with the sun lower in the sky behind the Taj Mahal.
