What a soothing collection of tones, Raj. Keeping it low key makes the image for me. Just like Tabla: if tabla dominates the vocalist or flautist etc, harmony is lost and mood is gone!

What a rare gem this one is, Ganesh! Magic created by Bharatpur and Sarus Crane combine?

Yes Ganesh! BTW, what they claim in that video is scary! While we are creating synthetic life on one hand, we are driving many species to extinction on the other! Isn't it ironical, the ways of man?

Thanks all! Raj, I went thru several revisions before I settled down with this. I had similar thoughts when upped the contrast. But I stayed with this one as it directs one easily to the highlights. Will share the other version in Illustration forum...

Thanks, Ganesh. Yes IR helps, if you chose the subject and lighting carefully...

Thanks, Ganesh. D700 may not be the best option. Please go through this website: https://www.lifepixel.com for more info...

Thanks, Ganesh. Having a converted IR camera gives another creative option...

Vikas, Raj and Ganesh, thanks for your views. Ganesh, Everything in the frame was green, but leaves and the snake reflect IR differently. Snake does not reflect IR much and hence appears darker. And BTW, image is monochrome whether B&W or color(red).

Raj, here's my take on the questions: Which is important intent or content ? Important intent makes the content important. No intent no content worth showing. In nature photography is nature the artist or the photographer ? In nature photography, artist nature is the photographer. Only camera handling is delegated to us. Is photography art of choosing or art of seeing ? Art of seeing is nothing but art of choosing. When we see something, choice is already made Do we fill objects in our frame or remove emptiness ? We fill objects in our frame to remove emptiness. Frame is empty to begin with.

Thanks all for your views. The title, "Mushroom Cloud" is an expression as used in https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mushroom_cloud. Nothing to do with the actual subject, but its appearance in the image. Unfortunately, the expression and subject happened to be the same!

Ganesh, I had looked at it in color though I had shot it in B&W. In colour, the effect of top light, and the shine of the droplets is lost. It becomes another shot of gliding frogs...

Thanks Ganesh. This was at Fringe Ford, Waynad, last monsoon. Agree. It was raining on and off that day. I have others with streaks of rain. Unfortunately, this specific one didn't have any..

Have been coming back to it many times. Very simple yet powerful frame, Nevilji.

Yes, Ravi. It's a multiple exposure (one with tree in focus and another slightly out of focus)...

A fine frame, Ashok. I like the way you have presented it: glowing flower among the ruins of plant matter. Conveys a feeling of "down but not out". TFS.
