Sunset at Subarnarekh River in Ghatshila

Sunset at Subarnarekha River in Ghatshila

Gold was mined near the origin of the river at a village named Piska near Ranchi. This is why it was named Subarnarekha, meaning “streak of gold”. In ancient times traces of gold were found in the river bed.

Behind the lens:
I took this shot using my tripod, with CPL filters. Yes, I had to bracket the shot to get the entire dynamic range of the scene and then blend it manually in Photoshop using luminosity masking to look more natural.
