This was taken in Northern India in August 2009. It's on the Kalka to Shimla railway, I was travelling north from Delhi on my way to Leh. I was on my way from Scotland, my home at the time, to Melbourne, now my home. I had purchased my first DSLR before I left. I had read about this narrow gauge railway which wound its way through the mountains and knew I wanted to take the journey. I snapped hundreds of photos on that journey. Loving using my first DSLR (I had only used film SLR previously and that had been several years ago). This photo sat in my laptop untouched for years before I published it on Flickr. I had ignored it amongst all the other images I had taken in India, and the hundreds I had taken on that train journey. I occasionally like to go back through old images just to see if there is anything I can work with. I’m not very good at deleting images, bit of a hoarder in that respect. Anyway, I was getting a lot more experienced using Lightroom & had just purchased version 5 which has a radial filter tool. Originally the face in the window in this image was darkened out. When I applied the radial filter and increased the exposure on the face in the window it pretty much completed the image. This image without that face would just not be the same. I even called it “Through The Window”. India 2009

Going through my old shots from India. This was taken on a train journey to Shimla in 2009. Originally this guy's face was too dark but thanks to the radial filter in LR5 I managed to brighten it up and bring out his features.

Shot in the evening from one of the minarets at Jama Masjid. This was an impressive view over the rooftops made all the better by the hundreds of kites flying from the rooftops. Delhi 2009
Just five minutes walk from where this image was taken is Connaught Place, where you will find Starbucks, Nike, Benetton, Adidas, KFC and other big multinational chains. These spotless, air-conditioned places are a stark contrast to the poverty seen in other areas of Delhi. A scene like this, common all over India, shows the massive divide between the rich & the poor in India. India 2009
