A large framed canvas should look fabulous Nilanjan. Love the contrasting light and subtle blur. Everything comes out nicely. I think you have a set of images with similar feel - may be you should print all of them together..

One day I would learn the art of printing from you Ganesh, I have that in my mind :-). Then I will surely print them. We can think of a way to arrange the images in a very interesting way and print it. Presentation is another major weakness of mine :(.

Lovely lovely. A classic. "Better to have a blurr picture of a sharp concept rather than a sharp pic of a blurr concept " Ansel Adams this pic proves it (not meaning intentional Blurr in a derogatory manner )

Art is about what is inside rather than what is outside

this could be a good print on a paper print ? Start printing, it is tough, challenge, challenge to your pocket, but fun for sure. you will enjoy it.

RD, I have no idea about printing, how to select the right paper, then what is the right size for a print , what paper tone etc. I need to really understand all this before I take on to printing. I am dying to make some prints, hopefully some day, I would understand this part of the art as well. Need to sit on this with Ganesh. The best gift to myself would be a proper printer which would be able to make 60 x 40 inch prints. I dream of owning it some day :-).

Nilanjan, if you are sitting with Ganesh for this, i would want to be a silent listener & learner. Hope Ganesh doesn't mind :)

Vikas, there is no reason to take it otherwise :-). I completely agree that often one single image does not help in understanding certain aspects in nature. Recently in CNP we were discussing how challenging it is to understand the emotions of the subjects in nature. Before I tell you more about why I called it FEAR, I would like to know what do you think is the image depicting ? This would be interesting actually.
I surely have the color RAW but I did not process the image in color at all.

i would like to give some background about myself before explaining further. Being a son of Vet Doctor (who was also working as a wildlife doctor) i have spent around 20-25 years of my life around animals. We had many pets at home and i was also exposed the wild animals for some time. Its very difficult for me to understand the animal behaviour and their emotions. For me, imposing human emotions to animals does not look correct most of the times. All the animals (including humans) have some basic common emotions. But all of human emotions may not get mapped to animal emotions (this is my assumption though) :)
For my eyes, your photo is depicting anxiety more than fear.....I am NOT saying what I am seeing or saying is correct....but this is what i felt when i looked into the photo.
Animals spend most of their life time being very alert to any change in the surroundings and their anxiety level increases with the changes in the surrounding. Fear may become the next level of anxiety. Anxiety is the most common feeling that I have seen in animals…
May be i dont have an eye to look into this photo and understand what you want to convey.... :(
