Canvas Painting ?

Canvas Painting ?
I photographed this Oriental Honey Buzzard at Bharatpur. We were there for a week and I believe even 1 month is not enough to capture the mood of Bharatpur. I liked the canvas painting like effect in the background. The spotlight on the raptor added to the image.

Ganesh, I am trying to imagine how this print would look on your new printer :)

It has a nice feel Sudhir! The forest shade and the spot light did the trick! I was just wondering how it would have looked if there is a little noise on the whole image! That may give it a better 'canvas' feel. But thats just me! :) Thanks for sharing!

Sudhir, I like the eye here, the use of natural elements for burning some spots in the frame is a good concept. I would love to see the INW version of the OHB on a canvas print. Recently saw those lovely prints at Ganesh's house. Its worth getting one done and putting it up at Canon lounge.

Beautiful spot light here Sudhir, love this one. Interestingly I love the light just behind the head of the bird too which makes it interesting in my view. Wish the bg at bottom of the frame could have been smoother but then you don't have control over it !

Coming to print, I *think* (could be wrong) lustre/semigloss kind of papers may be well suited for this than canvas. I have been learning/experiementing a lot with different kind of medium so far, it is new learning curve all together. On canvas, images look extremely natural. For example mud on elephant head appears as if mud is pasted on the canvas! Hope to share some of those knowledge on my site in the near future..

Wonderful image! On canvas I am sure this will look like a painting. The spotlight has worked wonderfully well. TFS.

the selective lighting is sublime Sudhir, and illuminates this beautiful buzzards face perfectly..this has such a wonderful mysterious feel that I really enjoy.

Hi Sudhir, I think you did a superb job of capturing gorgeous lighting with a great DOF.
A great job.

Hi Sudhir,

Your image shows great patience, wonderful light, and a perfect DOF. I imagine that a larger image would print beautifully.
