Charge
When we experience a charge like this in wild we only see a rough shape. Details if wanted can only be seen in a photo. If we don't want those details but want only the visual account what we saw then here is how it appears :)

I love the entire frame in de-focus for this mood, the elephant's charge appears to be created out of blotch of ink on paper. Incidentally many outside Bengal may not know, Rabindranath Tagore was a master of this, while writing his poems, songs and stories he used to cut the words in a line in such a way that later he used to create many abstract drawing of shapes of flowers, animals, people using those pattern of cut words. Many publications were made later, such was the level of art in them that they were showed in galleries in UK and Europe. Now there is a school which conducts research on those paintings. :-). This frame suddenly connected me to his work :-).

Seriously I cannot ever come to terms with this Image Ganesh. Its 100% true that when you say this is how we see it in the real life. The blur is perfect here because it gives enough room all around the image to imagine this scenario while still keeping in the flavor. You remember the time when I had asked you how a person who has no idea on the context of the image may respond to, when presented with a blur? Well this image blows that question right out of the water, cos this image dosent need to have a context in place. I am sure everybody who sees this can feel the tingle in the spine!
Hats off to your execution. Its not easy to create shots like these in moments like these.

One of my favourite image of yours Ganesh, not much words to add.

I believe your explanation was not required, most of us would have felt the effect/impact even without that :). And, I feel cropping slightly from top and in the left would have added further by excluding the extra space on left top corner.

The last time I experienced a charge it was combined with a load trumpet, I froze, did not get of a single shot, this shot totally defines what I felt.

Sensi,

Superlative frame. I think I would like to spread vaseline in front of my filter on all my lenses and take all shots... ;-) ! You are kinda ....blurring our minds you know !

Question to you.... was this frame incidental since an elephant charge is mentioned ? ( ....now ducking !)

Krish, all my blurred image from this trip is mostly made using a tilt-shift lens (85mm), so no vaseline on the filter this time (I tried vaseline last time, but it was tough to pull off, we needed a small hole of clear region. Controlling the location of that was a bit tough). Was this incidental ? No, I was holding my breath and trying to do my best when the Gypsy was speeding. Using tilt-shift lens needs lots of accuracy when it comes to focussing. Probably I could have done better but then this is what I got...

Thanks Ganesh :-)
Good to know you were "focusing/ focused" , that to with a TS lens, a not so happy "ele" in the frame & a galloping gypsy with a mind of its own (mostly) ! !
Came out pretty grand Id say.

But now that you mentioned it, what other rendition did you have in mind as in "better" ? I am curious to know how one can better this.
To my limited Vaseline smeared small mind, this is a 10/10 :-)

Krish, I think it would have been better to get the elephant just a bit more focused - not at all to see the details but to get the structure and outline a little more defined to emphasize the dimension better so that the blurred elephant pops out further in the frame thus increasing the impact of the 'charge'. Anyway...
