Print it Falak! Love the aesthetics of rendering around the contours and how it merges with the rest of the frame along with grains!

Hi Falak, The posture of the beast has a strong impact, about its presence. TFS.

Some posts on CNP wake you up. This is one of those.While agreeing with Ganesh about the aesthtics of the image I would like to talk about the photographic journey towards making such an image, and, prior to that the conception that an image as feebly visible as this justifies our quest for creativity. I guess being photographers we are bombarded with surfeit of images making it difficult to pick up creative ones from the not so creative. The creatively endowed, you being one, always attempt to stretch the visual discourse to its limits. Your image is a fine example of that. But does it stop at merely unique visual experience? I don't think so. It has connotations going beyond the canvas. The maker of such images not only sees the clearly visible but also the faintly visible and in doing that transforms sight into vision, knowledge into wisdom. The maker of such images does not discount the imperceptible as insignificant but tries to read the imperceptible however much it takes which is the hallmark of inquisitive, probing, questioning mind. The truth is not always clearly visible nor is the visible always truth. A probing mind makes truth visible by peeling away intervening layers. You just did that. A big hug!

Ganesh, thank you. I will be sure to print this!

Hrishikesh, I agree, thank you for your feedback.

Nirlep - You're too kind, and wise. The journey to reaching a point where capturing the easily perceptible becomes almost arduous, is indeed interesting. As our mind develops and asks more complicated questions, the images that come out as answers become less and less defined/comprehensive. Someone told me, if you already know the answer to a question, ask a different question. And the answers to those are what interest me most. Thank you for all your kind words.

Amazing work, Falak! Love the impression of the beast.
