Ramanagara - a verticle panorama
Life has been hectic these days and I was away from home for couple of weeks on an official travel - could not post images for last few weeks. Back from a quick trip to Ramanagara today morning and here goes a verticle pano perspective from the same. Thanks for your views.

Now what to say about this ? Just a little whisper of Ohh My God ? I'd rather keep quite and just enjoy this one buddy. A life timer for me. Are you sure God made us all with the same ingredients ? :))

Fantastic artistic composition!
Personally looking at your images, is a great learning curve.

I have been always a great admirer of your images Ganesh, Your minimalistic approaches are a great source of inspiration.
However this image is not appealing to me.
You have tittled it 'Ramanagara'. But I can't connect this image with Ramanagara (Though I have not personally visited that place, I have an 'idea' of Ramanagar through your's and others earlier images.) Instead this image has a graphic elements and can be seen without the context of Ramanagara. It's looking more like an abstract art work. But then it is failing to make strong impact in that sense.
. May be it's just me who feels like this.

I am very curious to know your views.

Adithya, thanks for your candid views. I would like to know whether the image is not working for you for the title you can't connect (ie Ramanagara) or the image itself ? If I had excluded "Ramanagara" from the title would it have worked ? Just curious to know..

Very simple & very neat. I feel that the precise moment at which the shutter has been clicked matters in this image with that vulture being well-defined (with spread out wings, legs and the leaning-fwd head). If it were'nt so well-defined, the image might not have made same impact. For personal tastes, I might crop off some portion from top. I understand that this might not make the image a pano anymore and that you probably wanted to show the scale of the massive cliff.
That apart, desaturating this image completely might remove the blue patches (around the vulture) & warm patch (towards ULC).

No Ganesh, even without the title I can't comprehend with the image. As I told it's a graphical image and looks like an abstract art work. That's what I 'saw' in this image. But it failed to make strong impact as an abstract work.
Irrespective of the flower(/ the subject used to make images) below images are very 'strong' to my taste.

But the above image fails to produce such strong emotions in me.

I did see the blue cast after post Kaushik. I this is silhoutted "color" version. So B&W version should remove that. THanks for views.
Here is another version with vulture slightly away. It would be interesting know which one you prefer (this one has been converted to B&W so no casts). For me proximity of the vulture to the cliff made lots of difference between the two and I went with the one closer to the cliff. Would love to know your thoughts. You may want to see it 100% since browser may shrink and and display which may reduce the sharpness.

Thanks for your views Adithya.

Good, God made us all with different ingredients. Life would be boring otherwise. Nilanjan, hope you read it :)

Very minimalistic and nice Ganesh. The extreme contrast between stone and sky gives a nice sense of optical illusion similar to Rubin's vase. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Rubin_vase

Commentby Nilanjan Das on Mon Nov 15, 2010 8:21 pm

Read it Ganesh, :), I think the ingredients are all the same, but he left a few controls in our hands too :). That's what made it all interesting.

powerful planes 'n forms, ganesh. esp. love the form of the vulture that smoothly flows to the curve of the weed, hence the cliff.

regards.

Hi Ganesh,
I like the shot for it is bold in approach. Would you believe it that I tried visualising the shot without the bird and found an echo there. Some more details of vegetation will definitely add to it.

Commentby Ashwini Kumar Bhat on Tue Nov 16, 2010 12:22 pm

I see a human face in the image! If you see the image from white portion's perspective you can see a subtle form of human face.
A very interesting image indeed.

Both look good in their own different ways. The second link portrays more dynamic nature - or to be precise - more speed & action.
I liked the grass that's there in the original post which is missing (sort of) in the second link.
