the whOle picture!
Rafting down the river Jia-Bhareli in Nameri was one of the highlights of our recent trip to the NE. It was so pretty that a conventional landscape was not sufficient to capture the splendor of this magical eco-system with a pebble strewn river bank . So I decided to take the whOle picture ;-)

<Still new to this form of photography and I see a lot of scope for improvement, hopefully will get better with more opportunities.>
Thanks for looking

Thanks everybody for the overwhelming response. Nirlep Ji you have nailed the thoughts I have had too, with your usual flair for words.
If you ask me (after reading the post by your brother Dr Harpreet) all images must be made up of two elements, a Creative bit and a Technical bit. A 100% creative image would require no post processing, no modification, etc. It would look mind defying straight out of the box. The biggest task for images like this is tripping the shutter. On the other hand a 100% technical would involve a lot of work after the shutter(s) is (are) tripped. The creativity comes in way the image is finally presented. Both sort of images however requires seeing the image in the minds eye and executing it. But I dont know which form of images are worth more, is a 100% creative image more exciting that a 100% technical image? I do not know, but would be interesting to know.
Based on this theory I just proposed if you asked me the question where this image would stand? I would classify it as a Technical image more than a creative image. As my efforts in the technical front were much more than in the seeing front.
Would be nice to see how others feel about this theory / point I just made upstairs.

Harsha to me technology is a means to an end. There was something in your mind ( which we can call the end) or else you wouldn't be stitching 150 images! You achieved that end with the help of technology. This image is a very creative one in my opinion for it achieves and articulates a complex thought.

Great Work Harsha, i too thought it as another fish eye thing but your explanation make me wonder the kind of thought deployed in the execution. Kudos for superb execution
