Barking Deer

Barking Deer
Normally barking deers are not seen inside grassland of Dhikala but one evening we saw one for a few minutes before it retreated into woods..

This is like a dream sequence Ganesh. Amazing use of DOF. In a lighter vein the Deer seems to be asking "Are you taking my pic or the elephants ?"

Art is about what is inside rather than what is outside

Am in two minds Ganshi, an image which has no flaws but the hog deer here is pulling me back to reality from a very opposite mood which is created by the rest of the my mind the elephant and those dead logs as presented is creating a much deeper impact.

Excellent Image. Even the crop just including the oof elephant with logs will also be too good.
Thanks for sharing.

for me its a very good composition which contains 2 images of a walking elephant in a dreamy effect and a sharp deer. I liked the tonality a lot and amazing DOF
Please share the image if you have the logs in focus and rest all are out of focus.

Hi Ganesh,
It's barking deer and much more with elephant and trees adding to the play. deer framed at the edge fits well with your description of the moment.
Thanks for sharing

Beautiful capture, Ganesh! Love the OOF elephant and the dry trees. The tusks and the posture of the elephant makes it very special. TFS

Love the way the blur is adding to the image.Blur images till date were entirely blur but this one is new, presenting it with a sharp infocus subject seems to have a dual effect on the mind. While the strong presence of the elephant and trees in the BG is dreamy the sharp deer is opposing the dream and bringing the viewer into reality. Even though my eyes wants to rest on the blurry trees and elephant I am aware of the deers presence. Intresting mixture.

Has the barking deer stolen the mood created in the background? This is what I am asking myself. I like the background image, it is fine work by itself. May be you can make an image of the elephant and the dead trees by cropping this image. Just my thoughts.

This is fantastic Ganesh. Just right DoF is all making the difference here. Image even flies without the deer :-)

Cheers, Shankar Kiragi

Loved the image Ganesh. A small part of my heart initially craved for a colour version with a square crop of deer and the elephant in the frame... but then settled.... then again... why not..? ;-)...

Love the shot.. BW and Shallow DOF with the trees and the elephant adds beauty..
