After Sunset
I made this image about half an hour after sunset. I think lighting during late hours provides us with lots of opportunities to try create different moods. Such images are light on eyes, soon mind takes over from eyes trying to associate the image with some feeling. To me it is similar experience of listening to melodious hundstani night ragas - ears don't have much work there those ragas have a very soothing effect on mind.
If you have heard some tracks from "call of the valley" or similar collections you probably can relate to what I am talking about...

Hi Ganesh
This is just too good. I do not know if I would combine this with the call of the valley series or not, but definitely to go with the Evening series, imagining Ustaad Wasifuddin Dagar sahab preparing himself for a malkauns recital. A few drops of rain would add. :) :). Your image created the mood.

Nilanjan, in particular I had Piloo rendition within "call of the valley" album. Of course "Call of the valley" being a master piece I can't relate this image. Just wanted to point a similarity between hearing music (moody ragas) and seeing images of nature...

Beautiful association of music with art here. Reminds of me Pt. Hariprasad Chaurasia's "Sristi" composition. Coming back to the image, the slow shutter is indeed creating a serene mood here.

This is Really Soothing image Ganesh ... I feel like listening to some soft Raaga from Pandit Hari Prasad Chaurasia's Flute ... Feels Very Blissful ..
