arati, i took some time for all the interesting discussions and links on tonalities( totally new to it all) to sink, before i express myself,
and then Ganesh adds forth an added association of musical raagas..Phew!!!
Have some basic exposure to classical music, and i must say, one looks at the mood of the image now in new ways,
and i heard the Ragas/raginis in ur image, of course "which raga" ,is very subjective,i could not connect it to ahir bhairav, for me it was more an evening mood in the image, and of course the "Pakkad/ bandish" is the musical notes of the delicately lit radiating branches ..overhead, though the "little egret" vies for attention first.
nevertheless..i love ur enthusiasm and excitement, its very inspiring,the quick experiments on tonalities, and lovley results... and the huge learning when an image sparks of a flurry of discussions...repeating my mantra.."the joy of learning is unparalled", on this forum.lapping it all up and hungry for more!:):)
