    What I loved about the image was the reflection of the sky between the edges of the leaf, not sure how it happened, maybe the weight of the leaf edges gently bending the water thereby reflecting in the concave depression created..
    While shooting the corn fields from a car noticed the interesting pattern created by the stalks and the clouds above..for me everything was in motion... me, the corn field and the clouds above in one direction

    I washed out the bg in original image to get a high key but later recovered the blue sky in pp..
    Increased the yellow slider in B&W to emphasis the lioness
    Shot this last weekend, This is a captive Amur tiger.. largest tiger of its species... Conservation program at my place..
Also called siberian tiger even though its primarily from north eastern part of Russia and China border....
They are highly territorial and each male species have a large area that they call their own .. like 50 Sq Kms

    These dragon flies allowed to get very close.. so close that a little further and my lens could touch their eyes.. 
This place is next to a brook and wanted to show the habitat of this dragon fly ..
Macro world has myriad beautiful patterns, Slowly discovering the new genre ...

Thanks for looking
    Shot this long back and remembered to post it after seeing the Dinesh's image..
I like how the bird is flowing with the lines .. I have one more image where the bird is against the flow .. but chose this one to post..Its amazing how well the birds fit even in chaos..

Thanks for looking
    I found this reflection interesting in the dawn hours.
Thanks for looking
    Shot this today morning... 
saw a dove couple sitting on the rain drain below my window..I was careful not to disturb them, so  slowly took the camera out of the window, but one of the doves caught me and started looking at me with a hint of fear in her eyes..
The blur is of window frame and used it to intentionally create a dreamy effect..

Thanks for looking

    I went out with a camera to shoot the citycape after twilight which is next to a small river, but found the patterns on the river to be beautiful in the light..
Luckily saw this duck and her duckling land nearby and start swimming in this well lit scene..
The raw file had more saturated colors but had to tone it down...

Thanks for looking
    Found this little one yet to blossom like his neighbours..
I was lucky to have selective soft sun light just on these flowers.
Thanks for looking
C&C appreciated

shot with a 100 mm macro on 7D
    Shot is dedicated to early pioneers in astronomy who would look up the sky and amazed to see the brilliantly lit milky way, comets and the uncountable stars...
I shot this fall in Great sand dunes national Park
The image turned out to be noisier due to camera and physical constraints..
12-24 on 450D
f/4, 30 sec , iso 1600 

Thanks for looking..Let me know if inclusion of me in this picture would violate any rules..

Manoj
    Witnessed this grand performance of nature few months back when I was trekking in central Illinois...The winter fog amplified the mood..
Thanks for looking
C&C appreciated..
For better viewing, look from a distance

    Used a top view shot to shoot this ant over the freshly bloomed spring flowers...Envy these little creatures that can get so intimate with nature

I had been inactive over the past few months, I will be regular now and share my pictures for the critique

Thanks,

    Nirvana in Sanskrit means freedom from the complex web of life..
The patterns blowing out from the center of the stump symbolized nirvana attained by a fallen tree in nature..

Thanks for looking..
    Recently I have been working on creating OOF subjects that still contribute to the mood in the picture..Finding the subject and the lighting conditions is the main challenge.. I shot this Robin perched on this tree in fading light...
Feedback appreciated

    Was experimenting with low shutter speeds to create the pan effect on this bird.. 
Thanks for looking
    Saw these robins returning back to the nest..the branches seemed stretching their arms welcoming the birds back home...
Thanks for looking
    Been witnessing the fresh footsteps early in the morning  outside my window for couple of days....Some mysterious animal in the urban environment..
While shooting this, I saw a man cross over these footsteps, his footsteps adjacent to the animal's.. that reminded me of Nirlep's 'Evolution' image.. the imprints on snow  are not so strong as that  of on concrete, so did not post that picture here..

Thanks for looking...

    Was lucky to get a near dark sky in sand dunes national park 
30 sec exposure @ISO 1600
    Just a lone dragon fly on this big planet..
    Lost Valley Arkansas trail
Accomplished this monet look by camera shake
    The insect shown in this picture is very small ( tents of a millimeter) and they are found in thousands hovering in air, over ponds.. I dunno the technical name. What amazed was the motion tracked by these insects.. it's helical in nature. This is a shot taken at 1/100.
After many shots I found this one to be good. A lone insect following  the light

    I wanted to share one more picture of the dandelion I shot recently. I was surprised to find the aura around this
Thanks for looking
Click on this http://www.creativenaturephotography.net/forum/phpBB3_0_1/gallery/image.php?album_id=1&image_id=3232 to get a sharper version
    The complex pattern of a dandelion 
Thanks for looking
    Due to a construction activity of erecting new homes,  2-3 old trees were cut and their trunks uprooted. Its a sad thing to see..especially when the same trees offered shelter to many species of birds...
Today I saw this little fellow growing and blooming  on the same trunk that was uprooted..... I guess this is the cycle that goes on...
I wanted softer light but no clouds in the sky ...
Thanks for looking...
    One thing  that made me shoot this picture is how everything runs diagonally, Even the posture of bird adds to the lines...
I find it interesting so thought of sharing it with you...

    When I clicked this picture I had in mind to show you all the tiny space the squirrel occupies in the vastness of a tree.
Living harmoniously with nature unlike we humans.
