Misty Landscape - Bharatpur

Misty Landscape - Bharatpur
Color version of the image is here. Which one works better for you?
You may want to see this more as a 'landscape' image than as a 'sarus crane' image.

I think capping the whites at around 220 in this case (plus added Ilford FP4) grains) is a critical decision to retain the misty/moody feel (for my taste buds).

I like the composition and the pano take. The FP4 grains add a lot and integrate the sky to the land. Muted contrast works. The glint of light in the wings adds. Wishing, for a bit more of that glint !!!! But I know field conditions

Art is about what is inside rather than what is outside

I like the wide scape and compo. Moody as usual. I would choose B&W and grains effect.

Cheers, Shankar Kiragi

The moody tones add a lot, Ganesh. I think the grandeur of the scene can be enjoyed only when viewed in full size.

Best Regards,

There's something truly special about the space in between which conveys a lot. The colour version is so different from this one and I will choose the BnW one.
I was just wondering how a different pose of the Sarus pair would have affected the overall mood?

Even though would love to see it as landscape, cannot miss Sarus. if Sarus would have got exposed little bit more... I can see the bent tree and Sarus on left side leaning towards the straight tree and Sarus!!

I think I will go somewhere between this version and the color image.

The misty morning mood is fantastically brought out in this image.
