All isn't well...




Ganesh H Shankar
All isn't well...
Restless resting deers in the grassland of Dhikala in Corbett National Park one morning. Nothing is certain - a tiger may be hiding at a striking distance in the grassland while vultures patiently wait on the top of dead trees.

And the cycle of life continues unabated....

Absolutely Ganshi, The Cycle of Uncertainty.....brushing life with visions of death, the fear of ignorance, The Call from the world of Unfaithfulness....the moment when I felt it was all coming up to the surface in Corbett, it was time to turn our faces away and get back to the comforts of seeing nothing, thinking nothing and above all feeling nothing. The trip added more pain to life....silence raised so many various kinds of questions.....
Awesome learning Ganshi, just's meaning opening up slowly

indeed, very intriguing mood 'n elements relating to life 'n death 'n life ... also like the way deers fills the space below. somehow, i feel straightening the horizon would help.

tfs, ganesh. regards.

Beautiful, beautiful image here Ganesh. I love the deep dark tones, saw these tones several times around these trees, and the mind's eye remembers this scene very well :)

Agree on the horizon line..

Thank you for sharing!

Don't you want to open a bit more ?

Commentby Ganesh H Shankar on Mon Jun 25, 2012 11:35 am

RD, do you have your display calibrated ? If yes then my answer is no ! :)

I wanted to keep the tones muted to emphasize the uncertainty..

I liked the mood in the image. The image conveys the emotion what the title says! Excellent one.

Hi Ganesh, I like the mood with uncertainty lurking underneath (and above), the vulture on the tree adds to the image. The dark foreground adds to the suspense. The plane doesn't seem to be in level, may be a slight alignment would help I think.

I saw this image and the title that came to my mind was "Free yet bounded". I think doing a pano crop with the tree stumps touching the upper part of the frame might be interesting to try out. The stumps would appear more like a fence and would give sense of boundedness to the image.

Love the ominent mood here. The bare trees adds to the tones . Well seen

Art is about what is inside rather than what is outside
