Desert and a wild ass

Desert and a wild ass
It was quick and unplanned visit to LRK, last February. When I first saw the desert I was spell bounded by the vastness of it. Everything looked small and dwarfed. Made some images trying to portray that feeling. I would like to know your views.

The vastness is very visible here, do you also have a frame where the sky is just 1/4th and 3/4th bottom has the rann ? Just wondering how wud that look ?

This is stunning. Not just vastness but also, that feel of endlessness. If you were to scream in this place, there would probably not be any echoes.... that is how the feel is for me..... Truly amazing.

Love it Aditya, its a true Living Landscape! The BW conversion is adding to the minimalistic feel of the image. The ass running towards the end of the frame on the RHS has set up a nice conflict in the mind where I would have wanted it to go left towards the empty space but it is going the other way towards the end of the frame. Makes me think of the end in more than one sense.

The ass really looks like an ant in the vast landscape.

Adithya, whats your thoughts on ass going outta frame? I am sure, you would have had ass walking into frame. But, you must have chose this for some reason, right?

@ Samyak,
No special reason behind keeping the wild ass going out of frame, I thought at this size that would make no big difference. Also in the images where the subject is going out of frame the the empty space tries to pull the subject inside the frame and creates a sort of tension.

I have posted other compo in the illustration forum.

your thoughts of open space screams in this image, not sure of the placement of the subject.
