NirlepJi, Nice visual learning from this image... And i totally agree on your point that the only confinement for our visual boundaries, is the imagination limit...looking forward for more of this :)

A very appealing hierarchy and lovely presentation for my taste buds Radha... Do you need the 1/3rd space on the top? A pano would be more suitable i believe...

Hello Doc, Let me see if i can work out something with the admins.. or try to club the images in to diptychs, which requires a new processing altogether, which might not happen sometime soon.. I had the same concern in mind when i started the photo story, and hence instead of posting one image per week, i am posting one image per day, breaking my regular trend...

Ashish, a visual treat this.. If i were you, then i would have opened up the tree region a little and would have done a square crop where the bright region would be on the top right and the tree at the left bottom..

Sorry I was not well these days and hence the delay in my reply. I have tried to quickly recollect what runs in my mind these days photography per se. So here it goes… Primary triggers for an artist(in this case - Photographer) are: 1. What he learns from his environment: - This is a choice that the individual makes and not what is given to him as a part of his day to day interactions with the society. o These are the primary interests of an artist, which he seeks to explore/express. o This can be an imitation or improvement of somebody’s work which the artist closes associates himself with and tries to express through his images. - The transactions that he makes/observes around him, which triggers a specific thought/feeling inside him. o Commenting - with in the forum or through some ways of critiquing his own work and that of his peers. o Discussions – that the artist holds, when showcasing his work or as a matter of general exchange of ideas, philosophies and thoughts about his work and that of his peers. o Social interactions of any kind: Any kind of such interactions not pertaining to artists work, can still have a great influence on his work - an act of rejection, or that of love, guilt, failure, innocence, 2. What he learns from the work of others: - It is important to connect to the works of others for any artist to find his own sweet spot which initiates the dawn of new thoughts in his own work. The effect here stops at the successful connection between what the artist wanted to convey and what the viewer felt. o Images that gets registered to his mind instantly. o Some takes their own time to sink in. - Influence of a particular style or genre on artist and his thought process. The effect here is long lasting, sometimes the hangover is so strong, the artist might incorporate these styles/genres in his own work, o Nilanjan’s lost world series: o Biloor’s mind series: o Ganesh’s death series: o RD’s art of clutter. o Sacha’s style. 3. Finally what he wants to express through his images: - Objectively(An artist’s act called ‘self-expression’) : o Feelings that are buried deep with in him. o Emotions that are triggered by the visual. - Subjectively: o Expressions that of his subject( I agree this is a tough task given the challenges of wildlife photography.) o A tale/story related to the environment or a particular situation. With these points if I had to elaborate the process of creation, then below are the questions that arise in my mind: Am I creatively expressing what I am feeling using: a. Use of light. b. Use of camera shake, blur. c. Out of the box composition. d. Shapes and forms. e. Any other methods of creation which would elevate the result from an ordinary image to a piece of art. What is that I should CREATE? - Why should I create? - What is ART? - Can/Will my creations be termed as ART? - The style, which makes the end product. At times the execution is so unique it’s not repeatable. Sometimes the end product is visualized and executed and sometimes a pleasant surprise. - What is the right technique which conveys the feelings that I experience while making the image. - What is it that I feel while making the image? - Will my creation trigger, the same emotions I felt while making it? - Can my image grow in the eyes of the viewer? - Should it be an abstract? Or a B&W? - Will that be a square crop or a regular 4:3 or a 16:9? - And finally, the created end product, does it satisfy your expectations to be termed as ART? I have just noted down the points and have not gone in depth to elaborate them better, as each one of it will be a big discussion in itself. There are many more chaotic thoughts/confusions that I have in the process of creation, which I am not able to recollect now and maybe I will write a small article in CNP in the coming days.. Just before I end, I would like to mention that making images has become even more complicated as the creative hunger is increasing day by day. And I hope one day, I will find meanings/answers for all the weird questions that arise in my mind.. Would like to hear your thoughts too :)

Nice frame here Ashish... But i think the blacks are over powering the image, there by taking away the evening feel.. how about a square crop of just the right half of the image??

Doc, i get a feeling that the lover's world is lost in fire and the one on the right is reaching out to the elephant on the left to console/provide support... a great reflection visual for my taste buds!!!

I do have made a few images on the same lines Nevil..but what struck me with your image is the way in which the feeling is conveyed..its not just through the lonely Pelican... but the group of grass blades below which intensifies the feeling :) very well thought and executed!!!

Nice perspective here NevilJi. I think the blue pants are competing with the fading autumn mood here... I think desaturating the blues would enhance the visual appeal...

Thank you all for your comments and critics: @Harsha: Yea its a fun to work miniature subject portraying there world. @Nevil Ji: I had intentional kept it soft. I guess its not working for you ;) @Ganesh & NirlepJi: This was a broken plastic water pot that i found when Me and Ashwini were taking a walk in his uncle's farm. The moment i saw the pot and the ants roaming on them, i knew i had a perspective here, i just had to wait for the right expression from the actors in the scene... The have posted the color image in the illustration form. Here is the link: viewtopic.php?f=9&t=540" onclick="window.open(this.href);return false;. Hope that helps... Thanks again for all your critics...

Radha, how about a 90 degree CW rotation and cropping 20% from the top of the vertical image? I think that would convey your thoughts better :)

I like those 2 leaves at the corners of the image Shankar..Very creative concept and well executed i must say.. Going by the title, how about a vertical presentation?
