I find this processing extremely extremely interesting Neelu, this reminds of the antique style of processing images called WET PLATE, this is again becoming so popular. I think since this tone and style of processing has interested you, you should further explore going deeper and deeper. In fact this technique could be unique in wildlife and you can try putting various kinds of images made in various conditions and see how it goes from here. I am seriously looking forward to see you pick it up. Personally I get glued to these kind of results. Fantastic dear.

Nilanjan...i have been fascinated by the magic of the handmade image...and been reading up on collodion Wetplate and other techniques...i wonder if there are any workshops in india? there is a select movement of revival of alternative photographic processes.,.which will be exciting.. you know.."..GOING BACK TO THE FUTURE"........
meanwhile im enjoying experimenting..so early on in my journey,.some hits , some misses..a lot of learning, the journey is exciting.. would love to delve into this seriously, as echoed by you,..do let me know some good resources if u come across them... like i say " THE JOY OF LEARNING IS UNPARALELLED".....

Nilanjan da, i too am fascinated by the Collodion wetplate process, especially after delving into mann's work. but i am less interested in getting that effect digitally than actually learning the process ~ the "portable dark room" necessary for this sounds so incredibly challenging, given the subjects i like to shoot.
i want to learn it but am not sure of the feasibility given the need for camera equipment. Are you, or anyone on this forum planning to indulge in this? would love to hook up.

Unique and impressive processing, it gives a varied feel to the common tones we come across in wildlife images. The grass next to the deer is a bit of a dampener or if the deer was a little taller, it would have been more appealing but in nature can't always choose, can we? Thanks for sharing.
