... as i always saw cracks in the wall as thunderbolt. it struck me not until i saw this small plant at the bottom of a crack on a white wall, and could portray my thoughts using negative image!

thanks for your critiques 'n ratings.

ps. wish you all very happy dipawali.

This works well considering the cracks in the wall resemble the natural element and the plant at the bottom anchors it well. This image is very interesting because we are prone to interpretations all through. A few words like the title helps us to think in a particular fashion. this is akin to trying to see a rabbit on the surface of the moon, particular pattern in the clouds.

A creative mind is a restless soul...

Fantastic image, Nevilji. Keeping the plant small in comparison to the height of the crack gives a realistic perspective to the image. Very nicely seen. Thanks for sharing. Wish you and your family a very happy deepavali too.

Brilliant conceptualization Nevil ji.
I wish you hadnt disclosed the nature of the subject just yet! Lovely seeing and beautiful execution

Happy Diwali to you too :D

Ah Nevil!
A cracker of an image on diwali! what a way to guide viewer's gaze to the object of interest. I agree with Sriharsha about revealing the image too early. You should've let us play with it for a while :) Lightening effect has a dual meaning could be a bolt from the blue as also a revelation.
How about opening it up a lil bit from the bottom?
Thanks for sharing

Super seeing sir.
From the thumbnail I actually thought it was lightning, the top crack looks just like a cloud with a sliver lining.

thanks everyone for appreciating with crackers!

@sriharsha & nirlep,
may be you are right about disclosing too early, but then i also didn't wanted it to be overlooked, as i am moving away for vacation.
regarding opening up from bottom, i kept it this way as it reflected perfectly the way i see night sky with little noisy glow of the distant towns down the horizon and reflections in bit of nearby things due to lightening! coincidentally, i didn't had to touch much as green of the leaves perfectly fell near the midtones!

thanks again for words of appreciation. i will be missing 'n envying you all guys meeting for CNP meet; wish, next time it happen in academic vacation period.

What makes me think this one special is the feel that the things are getting blown out because of the lightening strike. Wonderful seeing and execution and thanks for sharing.

Amazing seeing here Nevilji. I second Ashwin and most of them have already talked about this. Your thought behind the image is simply superb. *Getting Blown Away* feel is icing on the cake.
I am wonder-struck! ;-)
