Mudbath - play of light
During my last visit to Corbet I spend most of time making images of elephants. The play of light and opportunities are something unique to grasslands of Dhikala inside Corbet National Park. Here is one such, thanks for your views..

wonderful play of light 'n dust here, ganesh. also love the play of various forms 'n sizes ... having fun together. how about cropping little upper dead part so that just a little dark band remains as a visual limit?

regards.

B&W conversion is a nice choice for this scene where the emphasis is on the flying dust in the air thrown up by the elephants.
Liked the way the elephants are looking in random directions.
Might provide a bit more room towards the bottom for my tastes.

Liked the unique body language of the elephants, especially the calf.
Made me feel that they were individuals with different personalities.
Also loved the bird at the edge of the frame.
Cropping a little of the top might help.

Ganesh, I like the sharpness/contrast in the second image. Any reasons why you opted for a thin border (in the second image) and not a thick one?

Commentby Ganesh H Shankar on Tue Aug 03, 2010 7:19 pm

No specific reason Rajesh, just wanted to keep the image smaller..
