Had messed up with the resizing, hence reposting.
Brickbats on execution awaited :) However posting just to know whether the viewer can relate to the portrayal of the story...

abhisek, would be lovely to have your portrayal of the story, the aesthetics of the defocused , blur, is a style, thats lovely, and one that ive come across only on this forum, its intriguing and interesting allright.

Abhishek, i have come back to this image several times. sometimes hoping for more of a clue from you, sometimes trying to determine how i feel. finally, i decided to comment. i like the blurred image. i made a bunch in Sri Lanka following a train of thought in my mind ... but that is another matter.

Here's what i take away from it, based on your title. The large elephant (closest to camera) seems to have a defiant stance ... almost stomping away ... but elephants dont do that, so here i am speaking anthropomophically. An inherently social animal leaving the group ... to me, the title would be stronger had there been more of a group in the distance. with just a sprinkling of elephants, the "non-conformist" is a bit of a stretch. Now, in non-conformist if you meant *you* :) then there are many here!

So in sum, am interested in hearing your "story." Bring it on, please :)

Neelu...would completely agree that it is only CNP has given us this "blurred" vision :)
Coming back to the portrayal...
Arati..really appreciate your stretch of imagination... that was bang on! I indeed wanted to show that social disjoint this elephant was creating, rather choosing for herself, with probably leaving behind that last binding relationship...
I told you the execution could have been far better... those black spots further back was a small group.... the one closer to the elephant is the baby... wish I cud have kept a bit more definition out there...

i think you nailed it with this bit:
wish I cud have kept a bit more definition out there...

i like this kind of layered interpretation, Abhisek (sorry for mis-spelling your name earlier). As a storyteller, i like delving into the mind of the creator. keep these coming!
