After several failed attempts over the last one year, I managed to get the eye in focus... I understand that such images are not really creative anymore :) But i thought I would like to get a feedback from you all.. Please feel free to criticize...

Kiran this is a wonderful image. It is not that these images are not creative anymore. Did you notice Shankar Kiragi's deer running image, there's so much of freedom in that image. Panning shots are a matter of practice and in no time one can execute them, but why would still a slower shutter panning shot be creative ? Varying from case to case it invokes a sense of relief in the mind of the viewer, viewers who do not wish others to be contained and fixed and chained. If the execution of panning can invoke that sense, surely it would be creative. I personally would want even less definition in these kind of images, I just wish to feel the fresh air of freedom. True that so much like these images have been made, that may not brand this image as unique but still these images can provide a lot of joy and happiness in the mind. So keep looking for what you might have missed being a little conservative :-). Talk to Ganshi, he would explain better than I could.

Thx for your feedback dada.. i understand what u r saying.. it's just the excitement of seeing something that has worked after so many failed attempts is what prompted me to post this one :) I surely will work on it..

Nice panning work here, you got the eye very sharp and well defined. I second Nilanjan's comment above. Let me add a few points related to making it a bit more focussed by simple changes to light/definitions.

1. I would slightly reduce the contrast in the highlight region (mostly deer).
2. I would open up the dark black backgrounds of the frame a bit - white on dark look so contrasty and mind seem to take very long to converge.
3. I would also adjust mid tones a bit to compensate for the changes above.
4. I would slightly loose details in the bg or I would remove the noise and then add grains !! (noise and grains are different)
5. I think a gentle warm tone may add a lot to this image - may be just a bit of red/copper tone.

Lots of changes ? :)

With your permission, I just applied those changes suggested above. Please ignore if this does not go well with your taste buds (I can delete it this post).

I have seen lots of books/tutorials dealing with levels/curves/selections etc in post processing. No one seem to touch the important aspect of the post processing - shaping emotional needs. For example what tones enhance what moods ? How do we control/enhance different moods ? Relationship between colors/tonal ranges and different moods etc. There is a lot more to post processing than just levels/curves etc.

See Kiran, how much difference this makes ? This not only looks so beautiful but the impact of the soft streaks in the background gives an entire new feel to this image. Wonderfully done Ganshi....I am too getting more and more convinced by your words about emotional responses while processing an image. So much to learn...:-)

Absolutely perfect!! Sometimes we tend to oversee the fine details that really make or break an image... in this case, my focus was again on getting it technically correct and in the process, i forgot the emotional part :( These are eye-opener inputs.. Thanks a lot GaneshaNNa and Nilanjanda!!
