Hello Sir, Strongly agree on nothing is right or wrong. Purpose of joining this forum is exactly to get "opinions" that will lead me to get more ideas to experiment. While cropping out leaves from the frame was becoming very tight for me so I kept them in it. Your input is definitely has learning value for me. & expecting in future also. Thanks a lot, Jagrut

[i:1c92hu4n]"I hope this will work."[/i:1c92hu4n]. Hi Jagrut, I think if something works for you then don't change it because we gave you a suggestion! That said, at times we when we hear another view we may get more ideas to experiment with. There is nothing right or wrong. Everything is an "opinion" (not truth!). That said, I like this presentation. Further, I would not divide the attention between birds and leaves. If this were mine I may crop it something like this. [img:1c92hu4n]http://www.creativenaturephotography.net/illustration_images/bird_illustrate.jpg[/img:1c92hu4n] Here is my composition grid for the same: [img:1c92hu4n]http://www.creativenaturephotography.net/illustration_images/composition.jpg[/img:1c92hu4n] Those lines, curves and intersections are visually strong points. You may note the lines/curves that pass through areas of interest. I hope this has some learning value. If this does not make sense, please ignore!! Again, there is nothing right or wrong!

Thanks Adithya. May be yes, Not having Leftmost twigs alone would have added I believe.

Love the image Ganesh! IMO if you had not have given out the presence of Bats and instead let us realise their presence, then it would have been "Their" world. As it stands now I think its "Our" world this time ;)

This is excellent experiment. Some more order/disorder in the shapes and colors would have added?

In malnad and coastal part of karnataka people reserve some par of the forest to their deities. They won't cut those forest/ trees. Even the thieves afraid to enter there in fear of deity. One famous deity is Naga or cobra. That small idol is of Naga. People won't even litter there.

Thanks Ganesh, Adithya & Raj for the encouraging words! @Adithya, I think that's a bird. @Raj, recently have been working on processing especially on tonality & tonal separation. I'm referring lot of CNP images, especially yours and Ganesh's images for the monochrome conversions. Understanding technicalities is one thing and understanding aesthetics of an image is another thing. Most challenging part and most important thing has been '[i:o2m6sker]knowing where to stop'[/i:o2m6sker]. As more and more I dig in to this more and more I'm understanding that my knowledge is very very limited. It becomes frustrating at times, no it's frustrating most of the times. This image is among the ones that gave me little satisfaction. But I know that there is lot to learn than what I've learnt so far. "[i:o2m6sker][u:o2m6sker]Miles to go before I sleep[/u:o2m6sker][/i:o2m6sker]" feels apt at the moment. Raj, would you mind bringing in few of your prints to the CNP meet. It would be a great learning for all of us for sure. Best Regards, Prashanth

Thanks Ravi sir , and ganesh sir you are very much right in saying that the posture of the bird made me confused while composing this way , i had both the images , the square in the middle and the posture of the bird facing in front .... but finally like the caption the disturbance of this posture being created within me was the thing forced me to see the image this way .....regards

done many times...Still the posture of the bird, the shape of the branch and the distribution of tones makes it special...Great choice of the way the image is processed

Nice, direct depiction of monsoon. Less of plants would have added to the image? Not sure.

Welcome to CNP Jagrut! A nice image to start with. Liked the mystery in the image. Agree with Ganesh on saturation and black and white. Hope to see many more creations from you.

A simple, moody image. Is that a bird or a spec of dust in he centre of the image?

Very well made Gourav. Just thinking how would a square cropped image keeping the inner square at the center would like?! Not sure whether the posture of the bird makes it a bit imbalanced if you compose that way.

Welcome to the forum, Jagrut. A fine image to start with. The posture of the bird, silhouette works very well. If this were mine I would try 3 things. - consider reducing saturation a bit, blue tones in particular - consider square crop of right side of the frame, leaving out green patches on the bark - consider converting the image to B+W presenting it again as a square crop. You may try these. Welcome again!

Thoroughly enjoyed the image, Raj! Initially felt it's too tight a crop but when I looked in full screen I could enjoy the tonality & the grandeur of the falls.

I think that will have some learning value Raj. If you can bring some prints and share with example why it looks the way it looks! I mean to emphasize the fact that tonal management is not accidental. First of all you need to educate some of us on how many stops of light has been captured on the print and how you managed it. Without this crucial info the prints will look beautiful but people may not understand why!

thanks Ganesh... this was a 5 min exposure. Reflectance was carefully studied with a spot meter to achieve optimum exposure . Side note: Do we look at meet theme as " Photograph as a print" and build some topics around that...

Very pleasing color scheme, in particular I like the whitish bg contrasting with color of the flower. Well chosen dof. Overall looks very artistic. Make a print!
