Lovely frame here Abhisek, agree with Ganesh on the toning. The highlights on the elephants and the trees in the background give a 3D effect to the image :) Thanks!

Harsha, thank you! I did make a frame like that too, but to me, this straight line looked like a 'journey' :)

Hi Nirlep... Shot it on a very sunny day and didn't have a hoodloupe handy to review images on the field. This one turned out a little soft, but the grainy golds kind of appealed to me, so decided to post it :) Soham - Thank you!

Nirlep, Rahul, Ganesh - Thank you all for your comments and feedback! Here's the alternate crop. Does this work better? [img:39lhc53d]http://1.bp.blogspot.com/-DEwfjJNaWww/UZpwa8hIsCI/AAAAAAAABqE/bdA-SkM7pSY/s640/_DSC0535_2_pp_900.jpg[/img:39lhc53d]

Ramesh, thank you for your feedback :) I see what you are saying, agree that black is taking over the image quite a bit.

Ganesh -- The point you raised gives room and opportunity for a lot of introspection.. "Is our ability to respond to non-human life forms is limited?" Many of us here are going to dwell on that point and explore ideas.. Neelu -- Food for thought, definitely.. I think images of primates and elephants strike an effortless, deep emotional chord in us, one for the strong physical resemblance and one for a stronger emotional resemblance.. Arati -- The first time I saw Flach's work, I gaped in wonder at the image quality and range of expressions he captured, but the naturalist in me sounded off an alarm that these were studio shots of wild animals :) But, when I disassociate that trail of thought and look at the same image, I see how we can relate to many of these expressions.. Those Bat images you liked, their coy looks.. and that fantastic one of the Great Grey, giving you an 'I know what’s on your mind’ look :) and that bewildered look of the dancing/leaping Salamander .. That look on the baby aaney's sister is unforgettable, also that watchful look of the matriarch just before they did the circle sweep motion :) In a way, we also tend to relate to expressions of Owls, thanks to their large eyes. But, its hard to relate to a Salticid, thanks to multiple eyes around its head! Getting rid of anthropomorphic labels from our minds while we shoot is definitely worth a try, it could make a huge difference.. And you bring up that important point on "why do we look for us? why cant we see the animal's emotion in the image?" .. Can we not enjoy and like an image just for what it is, without looking for an 'us' connect? I am not sure.. Do we do that with landscape images too? I think so.. A photograph of a sunrise over Hampi probably makes a deeper connect with me than an image of an iceberg in a blue ocean, simply because I have never seen the latter. So, this 'us' connect is definitely a limitation that is worth overcoming :) thank you all, for your insights :)
