During last year+ we have seen a strong tendency to interpret Creative Images as mostly abstracts and B&W images. This is excluding several other creative expressions of nature, namely - night photography, stereographic images, unique visions which are results of using special techniques like remote triggers, use special lighting techniques etc. etc.We felt there is a need to make it explicit that creative images are not just B&Ws and abstracts. One way to do that is to separate all images into two streams, namely - Creative Visions
: Mostly non-abstract unique images of nature. This may include night photography, wide angle macro perspectives, remote triggered unique perspectives, stereographic images, images with unique creative lighting etc etc..
A few examples that we think are appropriate to this gallery are (you may click on these thumbnails to see the larger versions
We have moved some of the images to this gallery to seed this gallery. There are lots of images that exist in the critique gallery today that may

You decide where you want to post your image. Please post a given image to only one of the two galleries (not to both galleries).

will contain images picked from both the galleries. The front page
contain a few recent thumbnails from both galleries and links to both galleries.
We hope this will widen our horizon and enable us to explore far more creative avenues !
Please let us know if you have questions. Looking forward to more unique visions of nature !
We have been very busy doing some of these changes. We have just completed 5 years as a forum. We will announce the images of the year 2013 soon !!
Please stay tuned !
Thank you for your support !!
