Lovely image praveen. Slow shutter speed coupled with some of the egrets in focus has worked wonders here

Praveen, this is something extra ordinary!! What a great thinking here!! Absolutely fantastic!! The feel is great and eyes just roll around the frame... The only thing I wish for my taste is a slight boost in the contrast which slightly separate the birds in flight with that of on ground... But as it is presented also I am totally in love with the idea... Thanks for sharing...

Beautiful ! One of your unique and amazing images. I love to have wider perspective. Agree with Ashwin on extra bit contrast.

Cheers, Shankar Kiragi

I have never seen an image like this ever, and am sure no one would get to see an image like this everyday. All I can say is this image deserves to be preserved. However I like it the way it is.

i did process the same image with bit more contrast....but i liked this more due to the muted feel.....once i print them i'll decide which i like most and that i would make a big blowup...thanks for the comments friends....

simply mindblowing, praveenji. once again i'm lost for words. everything is so perfect, like an illusion from a dream of an impressionist. i think, this monotone-like high-key is all that makes this image more than excellent.

Awesome! Cant take my eyes of it. Very well executed shot. I love the fact that despite the slow shutter and white subjects you have managed not to blow up the details.

This is Surreal, This is un-Believable, This is Outof the World, This is Unique.
I really liked this one. I have long term dreams and desires of photographing flocks of birds in such manner where few of them are stationary and few flying - using slow shutter speed. This image adds additional inspiration to me. I personally feel it would look really good on a large print. I would like to lay my hands on a copy of those when possible :)
The monotone - moody feel in the image takes you deeper and deeper inside the image.
One of your very best execution Praveen.

Oh my this is stunning. Ever since I saw this image, it was extremely difficult for me to digest this frame as well as stop thinking about it! Stunning image praveen and very very unique image this. A HUGE print would do a fantastic justice to this image. Just love it!

Commentby krishnan v on Sat Dec 27, 2008 7:26 pm

Ah this is unique. The partly sharp mostly movement and the almost monotone look really works well.
Congrats on a top class image ! Sure will make a wonderful large print !

Best Regards
