This made my day!!! What a soulful image buddy!! Definitely one of your best...u may just want to try with a square crop eliminating the legs as Dada said...they seem to be a bit distracting for the mood it is creating...overall a winner there!!

Crop suggestion from Nilanjan could work Kiran, well made.

Nicely made image, Kiran. I have no issues with legs being included. I feel including it goes well with your caption. TFS.

Beautifully made image Kiran. Agree with Nilanjan on the crop, thanks for sharing.

Very touching one Kiran, how about a square crop emphasizing the hand alone and a larger image, may be 900 pixel ?

Kiran, Beautiful. Agree on avoiding legs, I mean only leg fingers. Otherwise its difficult to comprehend the orientation or the body part.

Cheers, Shankar Kiragi

Very interesting and rich of feeling!. I'm not so distracted by the legs and foots. I feel they give the photo a bit of stability, and the contracted fingers create tension.

Thanks everyone for your kind words! I tried with various crops as suggested but the frame is losing its balance in the process... With only the upper half retained, I feel there is a need for some room on the right side, which is missing since this is almost a full frame image... I need to compose better keeping these things in mind! Thanks again!

This is a beautifully processed image, Kiran. While the naturalist in me still is not comfortable with anthromorphic emotions loosely ascribed to animals, it nevertheless does not take away from the image at all!
I *love* the presence of the legs. Its stance is beautifully defined. But what steals my heart is really the simple and unassuming, unpretentious, lovely processing.

Loved it!
