It was close to the festival of lights when a sudden spurt of life brought a large number of these insects to congregate beside a soft lit lamp. They were flapping away incessently while one was walking.

Very unique image indeed Ravi ! Love those magical blurs of wings. Good there is a fly showing up at the center adding some reality into the image. May be cropping a few pixels off the bottom (may be a very few at the top too) will strengthen the composition. I would also dodge the dark short strip near left bottom corner a bit.

Congrats on this one ! Looks very nice without a border, with one it will look even better.

Extremely nice perspective here Ravi. Loved the motion blur blending so well with the orange colors!

Ravi what an image, so well seen and executed. The colour tone is so magical and as you said this is most often seen congregation but never photographed. I would agree on the cropping some on top and bottom

A creative mind is a restless soul...

Common subject and very uncommon perspective. Really liked the presentation here. The image really depicts the sense of chaos in the place. A slightly wider perspective would be even better i pressume.

What an image! Who would have thought that the blurred out wings of these insects would have given such a beautiful feel to this image! Lovely! Very nicely done.
