Vultures on a cliff
Made this image at Ramnagar from a far off distance (this one is an 840mm perspective). Wish I was closer, not that I wanted to make close up of this but I wanted to use shorter focal length lens to get better definition of the same perspective. Love to know your thoughts!

The texture of the image is impressive so as the light here. But as you have rightly said it lacks in the definition. But a unique image in the sense that I have not observed this behavior till that day!

from the thumbnail, i thought this was image of bark of a tree trunk.
lovely image & the vultures look like tiny butterflies.
very unique & i liked everything in this image except for harsh contrast in the cliff (at places) - little tough on my eyes.
placement of the vultures in the frame is very nice & the fact that they look so tiny in the frame + all exhibiting same behaviour makes it interesting.

i might be tempted to crop off a little portion from the left of the frame (just about 5mm or so) which would remove the protruding small green bush on top-left-corner.

This is has a different feel, I wish you could move in a bit closer. But I like it as shown here as well. Never thought of shooting the vultures like this. They can be seen in this perspective in Bandhavgarh as well.

Lovely perspective Ganesh. I liked the freshness in the image in terms of perspective. I've been to Ramanagar and I've not "seen" this :) I tool agree on the closeness. If you were closer, I think it could have been more dramatic.
