Dazzled n Dazed
This wild Boar just escaped from the jaws of death but it could not save its litter from a Leopard. In this image I tried to illustrate its 'possible' vision and state of mind at that terrifying moment, ‘Dazzled n Dazed’.

A causal stroll into the forest for this Wild Boar and its litter suddenly turned into a nightmare. A Leopard ambush, sent the family helter-skelter, we heard some piercing squeals and saw something running out of the shrubs. I was hoping to catch a glimpse of the Leopard but it turned out to be this terrified Boar.

With all the commotion around I just clicked a couple of frames. I was not aware of my camera settings and the result was a blurred image. So for me, this image just happened without any pre-visualization.

To create the illustration of its vision apart from standard post processing I have ‘extremely’ over sharpened the image and turned the semi-blurs to scratchy lines.

I hope you like it. Comments, Criticism all welcome.

This is a nice effort Sree Kumar. I like the colours and the wavy patterns in this image. But I wish I could see the entire boar in the frame. But knowing your constraints, this is good.

Oversharpening often leads to bad results but not in this image ! I like the sharp green wavy lines and the 3-D feel in the image. The prominent colored border seem to seriously compete for visual attention - I would personally consider very dark grey border here. Agree with Gowri on cropped boar however it is just not easy to get everything lined up in forest. Thanks for sharing..
