Vine snake- a perspective

Vine snake- a perspective
One of the many advantages of having a own garden amidst western ghats and getting chance to work there is you can spend a whole day with vine snakes :)
Tried to make some different perspectives of vine snakes.
Would like to know your views.

Thumbnail did not do any justice to this image. Excellent macro work here, well composed. I would have loved to see the texture on its head - slight adjustment of contrast/brightness might get you the missing texture and depth. Thanks for sharing.

Totally agree with Ganesh; this is a cracker. The serpent's body slithering in and out of focus just like it would in real life, and in the process ending up looking like just a result of two simple brush strokes - one one either side - is what make this image unique and special.

indeed, a genial perspective, adithya. like the way it comes out of nowhere! and that blur curve of it's body makes the image very gripping 'n powerful!

I remember we discussed recently in CNP about how creative images can be made with snakes and what could be a better example than this one ? :-). Mysterious, patterns on both sides, the head in the perfect position, what else could one want in life ? I think the processing can be improved to make it look much better, this one is worth spending time on as am more or less sure that not many will get to see a snake image like this quite often. Brilliant garden you have Adithya :-), brilliant eyes and mind too. The bent patterns made the image for me along with the mystery attached to it.

Lovely Aditya. Nothing more to say but to sit and admire it. The sudden emergence of the snakes body through the leaves at the left seems to be diluting the punch if you ask me.
