Ganesh H Shankar
Last week struggled for hours at TG Halli back waters near Bangalore to make an image of a water wave when it just turns over. The key learning from this experiment is human mind is very very choosy about the final effect in terms of rendering. I have images of waves in shutter ranges 1/6 sec to about 1/60s. This one came some what close to what I had in my mind with a shutter speed of 1/10s. What I found is slight variation in shutter speed 1/6s or 1/15s yield a different perspective which my taste buds did not respond to. While I am not saying this one is perfect for my taste buds, making an effective image is often a very hard work and precise execution like carving for example - definitely not a casual click and move.

As always thanks for your views..

Very tough to capture the moment what you witness there Ganesh. It's always fantastic to see those waves to 'completion'. Wish we had the technology ( THAT TURING MACHINE! ) that could interpret our thoughts and translate them to pixels! ;-) Great effort

Exactly my thoughts. Many a times we see something and try to capture this, but two things happen when it does convert into an image it is not appealing and second the technology available does not capture it precisely, few things are left which only the mind can capture.

A creative mind is a restless soul...

Another nice previsualized image from you Ganesh. I remember the kind of effort you put in for that Dandeli moonlight image. There is a different kind of feeling in this image, very calm and peaceful. But on the other hand it co-relates to the damage it had done during Tsunami. It depends on how we view it, similar to what Nikon does in matrix metering where is recalls and compares to 30,000 odd images . Our mind tries to compare it with what we may have seen in the past. Good one here.

I can actually feel the flow of water in this image. Do not know what exactly you had in mind but am sure it cant be much different than this version. Loved the composition with the still calm water at the upper right making way for the turbulent water in the left. Super

This is good Ganesh, though am not sure of the vertical shot :) , as I felt that a vertical shot would have looked extremely interesting if it covered a long stretch of area. Maybe just may be a long long distance ( shot with something like 10 mm or less ) would have got the desired results. I am not sure though, just speculating. The light too seems very strong, you are very right here, the first look its thought provoking and then when I see it again and again, the mind says maybe this or maybe that :), too many ways of shooting this. Well atleast thanks to you and CNP that now I can maybe think of various ways how the shot could have been taken. :), not that they would have looked very good, but the experiment could be done. This is hard work for sure. Lovely attempt.
