I made several images keeping this tree as focal and birds. This is one of my favorites.

Shankar, nice visual. Now for initiating another discussion, don't you think this image has a predictive distribution of the tree and it's reflection ? I know this place and waited there nearly every day thinking how to create an image which would somehow lower the predictability of the visual offered. Tried tilt and shift too,some aggressive compositions but they look forceful deviation. This image ( visual ) is so smooth and no forced application will suite it is what I felt after failing to create a decent image. Perhaps nature only had to provide to make it different, as humans we are sometimes so limited. Lovely proportion by the way....hahahahaha :-), just pulling ur leg dear. Jokes apart, would love to hear your thoughts about predictability in art.

Nilanjan, Classical way of looking at things will never get faded by new ways of looking at things. One need to adopt new ways of looking at things based on old school way fundamentals or parameters. Nature, base subjects, landscapes etc. remain same for the next few decades or so. I always make attempts to create images with feel good factor (good looking :-)) or for viewing pleasure (for me and the viewer). However to be creative one may change the variables slightly so that environment around subject, overall mood changes a bit.

I do not think predictivity is outside the art or creative art process. To attain the perfection artist may repeat the process until his level of perfection is achieved. One has to create image or visual art closure to what a bare eye can see, then only viewer can co-relate the image to reality. Sometime high expectation or extreme creative urge will supersede the your gentle way of creation even by using 50mm lens. As you say no forceful deviation was required here to show the nature as it is :-).

I agree with ur thoughts that the classical ways will never fade, specially not every image can become experimental. I love Steve McCurry for that reason. He makes one wonder with his classical methods how one can create new themes. But then he is into exploring human themes and expressions which needless to say is more closer to the human eye and mind. Nature perhaps has a short coming here and many good visuals may end up as being repetitive. Nothing wrong with that but still the mind wished to look for a creation beyond what we have done in the past. Though I did not find the right answers in Bharatpur all the time. After coming back a few ideas sprung into mind. Hope to find the answers from somewhere one day. Completely agree that forceful applications might not have the answers all the time. Thanks for your comments dear...

Loved the visual appeal here, Shankar. More over the discussion has been good. Insightful perspectives there. Thanks Nilanjan and Shankar for that.

Wonderful hues and a beautiful image. Perhaps lower few pixels could have been cropped. They kind of distract to the view by not adding any effect.

Hi Shankar, its a beautiful image. I totally agree with you on 'classical views' which if I may call "Mainstream". IMHO, we often tend to try something different from mainstream and I guess CNP is such a forum and we love it. Sometimes we wonder if going 'out-of-the-box' in image making would be mainstream one day, I don't believe that but at some level there is a thin layer of difference between mainstream / classical view and in creating an experimental image. As you mentioned we have to see new ways to portray subjects. Coming back to the image, I am not too sure about the bottom right hand corner but if you think otherwise in a natural environment we often "see" a landscape or any other subject for that matter with our naked eyes with some clutter in the vicinity. In that sense I guess your image shows how we see scapes 'normally'. Thanks for sharing.

Commentby Shankar Kiragi on Tue Jan 22, 2013 10:13 pm

Nilanjan, I completely agree with McCurry's example. It's just that we have to adopt to methods in making various themes with minimum variables. After our trip I looked at Nick Brandt images and you can see his images have classical touch, just straight portrait or scapes themes. Situations can be more, but I feel classical techniques are few. I love to take U-turn earlier than later :-)

Vikram, Yes intention was to add the surrounding as is to scape. I'd love to defocus more the foreground but the distance and lens limitation allowed to do this much only.

HOw do you achieve such quietude in your images, Shankar. that is what i love about them. i could watch them for hours and not be bored or jarred. it seems in perfect harmony. really liked this frame, especially the feathery look of the tree - top right.
thanks!
