Most of our vultures are critically endangered.. Hope they survive as long we do and longer..

I have been wondering for some time about possibility of identifying some visual grammar which can be used to portray different emotions. Obviously I am not looking for any hard formula (which I know does not exist) however those which human mind has a tendency to interpret in some ways. For example in this image I tried to use the head down posture to impart a sad mood to the frame. Why head down stimulates a sad mood ? I think in our corner of our mind we try to relate that to a visual of a defeated person with head down. Further, blur is a conscious decision here - I just wanted the form and not the details. Your thoughts - not necessarily on the image alone but on this topic of postures/gestures/.. and possibility of using them for effective communication of feelings ?

Also, square crop or this one below ? What works better for your taste buds ?

the image goes so well with the purpose, ganesh. the blur 'n vulture facing down makes it more intense 'n sad. very artistic feel to this.
