Mountain goat in mist




Mountain goat in mist
After about 7 hours walk in "paradise", I got the opportunity to witness the Nilgiri Tahr. What takes about an hour for me to walk just takes few seconds for these beauties to cover. Was amazing to witness their agile and was astonished to see their intelligence.. the way they camouflage and run while fog/mist shows up to flee away from humans. Before I could raise the camera, they are no where... but this one guy alone understood my eagerness and gracefully showed himself for couple of minutes (but that too away by about 100 meters).

Bharath, I love this so much :-), this is the beauty of Indian or the subcontinental ways of expressions, subtle expressions, nothing loud, allowing the mind to slowly fill up the space in the image. I agree with your way of showing paradise :-).

I like the misty appeal of the frame, just wondering a bit of reduced exposure would have emphasized Tahr further. Your thoughts Bharath ?

Great mood here very much Vincent Munier like, I would go with Ganesh suggestion of reducing the exposure and popping the contrast a bit.

A creative mind is a restless soul...

Love the image for the mood it creates while watching it. One of those images, which transport the viewer to the scene !!
Agree with Ganesh and VMR's suggestion of reduced exposure and increase in contrast.

Thank you all, appreciate your time, views and inputs.
I did try reducing the exposure and increasing the contrast Ganesh and VMR sir but in a way it did not reflect "mood" I had witnessed. I have come with another image (which was shot few seconds later to this) with slight under exposure and increase in contrast here: viewtopic.php?f=9&t=462 . Please have a look and put forth your views.
