And miles to go..
I kind of liked way all these elephants going away from the grassland in Dhikala, Corbet National Park. The scene there was spectacular. I decided to emphasis this by leaving a lot of space in the foreground to lead the eyes towards elephants. Love to know your thoughts..

Bold decision to include so much of the foreground and the results are amazing..
perhaps space on the right, with the elephants on the left would have looked better?
would love to see the color version too if you have it

Excellent image.So for the best of Corbet from you. Liked the wide angle feel very much. Foreground grass, distant mountain everything is perfect. Nothing to say about 'Eleph-ants'. An elephant in the middle left/upper left corner of the image would have added a lot to the image, I guess (which is not at all in your hand). Does the image require 1 degree CCW rotation? How about placing the elephants a bit high in the frame? or cropping a few pixel from the top?
Waiting for your views.

To my taste, this is an excellent image and effective use of wide angle. Back of Elephants makes it more special. I think Dhikala grassland is more uniform these days.

Liked the way grass lead to elephants and miniature elephants in the frame. Tanks for sharing. Dhikala is one such destinations i should plan. BTW, i'm curious about your tiger images from there, you want us to wait more?

awesome feel to it Ganesh. Loved the vastness depicted here. I am however debating if a color version would be better or a BW one. I somehow think a color version can also be equally interesting. I think the dark of the tiny elephants sprinkled amongst the green of the vast foreground grass and the distant hills is also worth a look. Would you mind sharing the color version too please?

Commentby Ganesh H Shankar on Thu May 27, 2010 7:34 pm

Harsha, Majunath, I will share the color version soon. Hope to upload them to my site asap. Life has been hectic these days..

I wouldn't change a thing in it. Not even the tilt. Seems fine by me. The intent comes through crystal clear. Would love to see this in colour as well.

Fantastic feel of the vast grassland here. Great work during the conversion as usual. Not easy to handle the contrast in these kinds of cases. Liked the sharpening as well. Compositionaly I would prefer more of the bottom than the top sky. I would crop a small strip from the top and yes in spite of s little distortion (curvature feel of the grassland) it requires a very slight CCW tilt as well.
