Made this image in kerala couple of days back. Looks like high key images are good candidates for B&W conversion.

muted patterns of subtle strokes in the bg makes this image for me, mahesh. wish, you could have got some hint on bottom-right edge too.

Mahesh, Excellent image (are those dust spots on sensor or dust on web?). Defocussed Palm leaves are just amazing. Thanks for sharing

Cheers, Shankar Kiragi

Beautiful, just thinking would a little more dof of the palm leaves better the image ? love these kind of images Mahesh, thanks for sharing.

subtle strokes, defined spider, dust on web (?) - have made this image. Thanks for sharing.

Thanks guys for the feed back. Yes that is dust on the web. Made a lot of images with increased/reduced dof differing positions of spider and the background palm leaves. During PP only two images stood out for me. Final choice was more directed by feel than by rationale.

One of the best spider images I have seen. The oof palm leaves really is adding a lot to the image. In particular the placement of the spider inbetween the two oof palms is really taking the cake!

I love the way the spider is balancing the frame! Those two palm leaves are amazingly adding to the feel of it. Thanks for sharing this unique image.

I echo Shankar's views here Mahesh - the coconut tree leaves gives an artistic backdrop to this image. High key makes it for the rest of its beauty. Thanks for sharing.

Who said photography is not an art? You have portrayed here that it is seeing that matters and how the image renders not just on browsers but also on canvases and papers!

Fabulous creation here.

To the CNP team:

Just like Harsha who mentioned elsewhere, it is indeed raining some fantastic creations ! Sorry for being away for a long time, too much of 'professional' commitments and travel. I am chewing more than I can swallow.

to me this is contemporary pictorialism.....the green leaf in the bottom is slightly off balancing the image i feel....good attempt...thanks for sharing....
