endless lines vanishing into the horizon of bare expanses,
miles to go and miles to come
the daily trudge, across the rann
for water...
domestic animals, :) but i liked the way the lines vanish into nothingness
and thought i could post this in this forum..
and the title "MIlES TO GO BEFORE I SLEEP"
is a reflection of how i feel about my life
so much more each discover, unfurl, awaken, absorb, learn and soak......
and the line of verbs is unending....... :)

I feel you struck gold once again with this image. Fantastic usage of high-key and the way the composition has been made gives a lovely depth to the image.

Loved this one too Neelu. You are on a roll ... keep it coming.

Looks like a charcoal sketch, very nice. It can be made as a large print.

Sacha... thank u .im having fun on this journey and inspiration of course is from the "masters" on this forum.. " u included"..!!!!!!

Vikram....thank you..will explore.. but i wonder if in a print it should have the faded blurred look or "Strong bold charcoal strokes"??

The high key makes it look interesting, but I think the key aspect of the image lies in the pattern of the horns. I would have personally preferred a little more definition of that pattern. Probably possible with another round of processing Neelu ? Some more depth of field ? I like the way the cows are distributed but am trying to think if going more to your right would have helped in getting some better patterns of the horns. But it's a nice image.

totally agree..its the profusion of horns and the way they criss cross that caught my eye, and the lines fading deep into the horizon.
