Spring time




Vijay Mohan Raj
Spring time
Getting some color going in a waterfall image is very difficult, I got lucky when I saw this Erythrina overhang on a stream, the silken flow was made possible by the Singh-Ray vari ND filter which facilitated slow shutter speed in bright mid-afternoon sun. There are small details in the frame like the touch of green and the fallen log which are clearly discernible in a larger size image,in the present presentation maybe those elements are not that clear. Time CNP had a large file size option like NPN.

VMR, love the forest feel and of course Erythrina makes this image for me. Greens appear a bit muted, may be due to shade ?

We have increased the image dimension now - allowed new limit being - 1024 pixels on longer side and less than 400KB. Hopefully
landscape images will benefit from this increase !

I love this image for the varied light falling on different parts of the fall coupled with the lovely the red of the bloom which blends in well with the soft flow of the water. The image invites me to explore the different nooks and corners of the fall and the whole experience is very cool and refreshing. Spring is in the air and its lovely seeing such beautiful trees in bloom, and even more so when coupled with lovely visuals like this one.
Nice to know that the image limit has been increased, it would definitely be a boon for landscape pictures. But having to constantly scroll up and down for portrait orientated images like this one is a bit of a bummer, and not sure how it could be over come.

I hate to use the word "clutter" in Nature Photography. There is no such a thing. W.r.t this image I would like to use the word to convey the message that you have 'crafted' a beautiful image by placing appropriate 'clutter' in the right places of the frame. Print it big and hang it on the wall. True essence of Indian Jungle is well portrayed in this image.

VMR - this is one of the most captivating images of an indian forest i have ever seen.
it epitomizes for me "solitude" and the circle of life.

simply breathtaking. have come back to it several times, thanks to random reveals!

Breathtaking is the word. Had a few non-photographers see this image recently, and heard the familiar gasp from them; a few seconds later they would exclaim how lovely it is. The reds just bring out the energy, in the image, and from within the viewer :) Fantastic, Sir!
