The Thinker

The Thinker
This is my first post on CNP; Thank you Ganesh sir and Vijay sir for giving me this opportunity to learn.

This picture was made on a misty morning at Nandi Hills. The contemplative stare of the macaque looking into the light was the inspiration for this shot

Welcome to CNP Prithvi !

Nice image to start with :) Love the mood and composition here. Not sure whether you are on a calibrated display. I would gently open up the shadow region to emphasize the "thinker" more. Thanks for sharing and looking forward to see more of your creations.

Ganesh H. Shankar
Wishing you best light,

This is beautiful composition. Very Peaceful. I loved the pattern but at top thick branch distracts the eyes. A change of angle would have eliminated that branch. Just my humble suggestion...

That Monkey Monk is heart of the image :)

Cheers, Rahul

Certainly a very beautiful first image. Very well seen and photographed. Bit more details on the macaque would put this image over the top.
Ganesh already suggested it.
