Neelu, not sure whether you edited your description. I think I liked the bold experiment of using the frame of the vehicle. We need bold experiments like these to break barriers. If this were mine I would lose a few lighter pixels at the top and also emphasize the long shadow of the elephant at the bottom. Thanks for sharing !

Ganesh, i did edit the initial description...i just rethought, " that why am i explaining what i did here", probably its very evident, as most veiwers posting on this forum , are in a "creative ,experimental mode".
so repeating..what i edited..
wanted to experiment with aesthetics..that were in direct contrast to serene, quiet,zen-like and restfull.
Decided to combine" a lot of tricks" ( as Sri harsha has called them)
shooting through glass, including a frame, wetplate style processing and "a little bit of a lot happening"
with out of focus.. circles.. grain, etc etc..
Harsha says " i missed out the, OOF and Blur
so coming up , in another post.

Ganesh, thanks for the Tips, i will rework as per your suggestions...
i see emphasizing the shadows, would add so much,
i love it, how a shadow...tells you the time of day.
