An image made during my last month's visit to Westernghats. This one was taken in Yana.

Would love to know your thoughts on the image.

This is definitely one of the best image that I have seen from you. Lovely concept here actually, either way one can see it. I was in fact trying to think the gray part as an imaginary subject with the inverse pattern of black helping to give it a shape. Perfect choice to go black n white. Composition is just perfect. No nits at all for my eyes. Good images always make good prints so no point me telling you how this would look on canvas or matte :). Now I know whats coming after Sept 18th. My compliments for this amazing one and best wishes for the future, always.

Nice seeing here Shiv ! Serrated sharp edges and contrasting separation of the frame along the diagonal makes the image for me. Details in shadow region is very subtle and adds to the image in my view. I would keep about 10+ pixels more at the top so that the white edge at the left top does not touch the border. Overall a nice image which makes presence of the photographer behind the camera very evident :) Thanks for sharing..

I have never seen Yana rocks like this. Very well seen agree with Ganesh on the border

The beauty of such images is that they can be viewed even upside down! Love the duality associated with the image. The subtle texture of the rock, also fuels the imagination. This is isolating patterns and emphasizing natural designs, at a new level. Simply put I loved it man!

great 'seeing', shiva. love this minimal composition that can be inverted, as nilanjan & shriharsha pointed out ... also looks something like abstract of 'yin-yan' or 'positive-negative'.

Ashwini,this time I made a blunder . Instead of submitting the comment I pressed the submit button of the rating, which by default shows rating as 1. :(

Forget the rating, this image breaks all conventions here. Am sure none would see Yana like this. Super image Shiva!
