This is second one in the series of shots clicked from train in an attempt to capture differential movements of near and far objects.

Looks very artistic to my eyes Nirlep. Going B&W made it more artistic in my view. I am tempted to say black at the bottom seem to overpower a bit, but cropping it will hurt the composition.

Having tried various random experiements with different kind of camera motion I had (rather still have) difficulty in accepting that as a right approach to create unique perspectives. Most often than not we end up tagging a meaning to the final output which was not pre-conceived. But in this case your experiements are not random - it is driven by relative movements of subjects far and near while you are in motion. Looks like you have found an interesting possibility. I am not confident of pulling this off however :)

Thanks for sharing.

Thanks for your comments Ganesh. I've thought about this perspective for a long time before actualising it. Right now I'm gonna post a starker example of what I mean by graded/relative motion. That should be able to drive home the point better! :)
It's like sitting on a flying bird and trying to photograph a stilled photographer. A sort of reverse of panning?

Nirlep, This is amaging. I had tried something like this last year from a moving train in US. This is beautiful and B&W suits very well.
This is what all about seeing different.

Cheers, Shankar Kiragi

Pencil sketch it is! Splendid effect you had brought about in this image and uniqueness personified. Superb series Nilep.

I had missed this image completely by my friend Nirlep, may be it was rated a paltry 6.4 due to our lack of maturity, and CNP too was in early days.We have traveled quite a distance since then and now when am seeing this image, I think this is one of the best works of art I have seen in CNP. No nits for me, these are images where the artist has complete freedom, the role of the viewer is to try and fit into the artists angle of vision and just enjoy.
