Brilliant image !!! Will definitely remember this dusting image for a very long time. For me this is a winner Abhisek. Much better than what any one of us could create. Congrats !!! Don't want to pick nits, if this is not perfect then beauty does not lie in perfection :-). God bless you.

Brilliant picture Abhisekji.... Loved the tones and composition. A very rustic feel of the elephants and the forest. Multiple visits needed to absorb that feel.

Fabulous creation, Abhisek! The dust, the elephants, overall tonality, everything, so well captured and presented. The tree in the background is just brilliant. Tree alone could have been a winner :) TFS

On second look, the upper part of the dust looks itself like an Elephant head with a truncated trunk to me...:-D...The tone is just what is required!!...Amazing effect.....

Wow! An amazingly powerful image. The background, that tree, the elephants, and of course the dust - creating magic together. This is marvellous!

What drama here... love it. Amazing setting and effect.

Work of art - a very interesting processing and handling of tonal ranges. Best of your images seen so far. Make a nice print on a Hahnemuhle Photorag 308 paper.
Thanks for sharing Abhisek..

One of your best Abhisek. And as Ganesh says, make a print, you will love your creation even more.

Fantastic image Abhisek and such a great title to go with. The dust from now where, tiny high light on the baby's face, leafless tree everything adds a lot to the image, thanks for sharing. I am now sure if it can be still be bettered with processing but will leave that for the experts to comment.

What a shot! Terrific work! All that needs to be said has already been said. I will however just say if you could have spaced the tree a little more to the left.... But I guess I will just sit and admire.

super one Abhisek, awesome moment perfectly captured, love the tree in the image.
processing is also amazing. this being amazing compostion, have your tried diffrent crops to bring more focus to the subjects?

Thanks all for your views/suggestions...

@ Neelu... This was Corbett indeed...around the same time when I guess we met there...
@ GaneshAnna... Kiran & me were discussing the other day about printing and he was narrating the discussion he had with you!!! Guess that's an even more difficult ask to understand the nuances of printing... May be one more of those sessions with you some day :)
