One of those images where both look fit Ganshi. We were at point a little disappointed that these lovely birds were not exhibiting their dancing rituals, but looking at this image am feeling such thoughts arose only from the rigidity of my mind. It was indeed a short coming to assign a role for the cranes. Nature in every form is lively and great images are possible no matter what the conditions are. Thanks buddy :-), lot to learn about nature and art. Am just looking at the shades of tones and colors in the colored image. Taking away nothing from the monochromes I must confess, am a little tilted towards the colored one due to the subtle shift of tones :-). For a moment the light breeze in soft rays of the sun touched my face just the way it touched those delicate feathers. Extremely well made portrait I must say which depicts the characteristic of the bird in this season just so well. These visuals are exemplary in changing the concept of portraits, a category for which sharpness and details have been dominant for a long long time. If the personality and the character of the subject is depicted so well, where lies the need to see how sharp is the beak and the eyes ?? Would love to read Nirlep's views. For me this is simply a revolution in the world of photography. Compliments from the heart dear....

Just got back from a stint in the desert to a wonderful bouquet of images here. I am leaning towards the color image, ganesh ... such a lovely gentle image this is. really like the watercolor effect of the tones. it seems to have been a nice time in Bharatpur ... enjoying the outcomes.
thanks,
A

From the thumbnail, I thought it was one cloud trying to burst out of another! And was pleasantly surprised to find a bird in the frame :)

A very soft, gentle image.. I cant make up my mind between the two, but the B&W is more appealing to me right now..

Ganesh, earlier, I hit the wrong submit button after typing out my comment, and ended up submitting that default number 7 rating on this image. Is there any way that can be undone? I am sorry!

Both are different visuals Ganesh, i would tend to go with monochrome than color. But, but ,
Color takes the image more nearer to the word "bird" in the viewers mind.
There is lot to understand from these set of visuals that you have created Ganesh, and as Nilanjan says, this is a new way for 'portrait' work. I am sure, soon world would follow you.

Radha, don't bother at all. All that matters is a few words of wisdom on the image..

Ganesh, I was confused by the B&W image then the color one clarified my doubt. Tones of the bird standout in colored version. The gentle movement of the feathers make this image for me. Very nicely seen. As Nilanjan said these image teach us to look at nature from different perspectives breaking out of our preconceived notions. Thanks a lot.

on a side track. Important learning for me from the point you make Nilanjan. Going with a preconceived notion in terms of what nature should or should not be doing and therefore failing to “see” what is in front and enjoy it for what it is. A sublime insight . thank you
@ Ganesh : Unable to appreciate the pic correctly on my laptop will take a look this evening
