You have focused accurately on the mouth. Not very easy to achieve.

Nice one. What's that animal? A stronger connection between the background and the plant would have added?

Thanks everyone for the feedback. This aspect ratio was something I hadn't tried before (thanks @Saurabh), going B&W was a conscious decision while bringing the waterfall in the image.

Water on leaves and the way it leads one into the image makes it for me. You could try a B&W version with vignetting on the edges & sides to bring the set of leaves with raindrops more attention.

Freeze frame from an action sequence. The mysterious space unfolding to the right adds a lot. The OOF keeps us "focused" on the scene rather than the diving into details . Reminiscent of OOF chameleon by Nevil . My all time favorite.

I like this one. Remnants of a battle scene. I like the wing which has become a mere object. Dismembered. Over all grain, tone, feel add up.

Nice, I'd have had the bird flying the other way, so it would give the feeling that the bird had all that space to fly into.. Flying into the storm as oppose to flying out of it. Such nice experiments.

Welcome to CNP Arjun, looking forward to your active participation here! I love the graphical impressions of the cranefly. Honestly, I would have liked a little bit more space around the subject. Tfs.

The muted tones and usage of space makes this image for me, Dr Vimal. Appreciate if you could add few more words on how you are relating this to the theme. Regards

Thank you Ganesh.. This was one of my favourite dry trees to shoot for a while, from the tree alone to birds sitting on it, the perfect setting without any foliage that came into the frame. Ironically this was the last photo of this tree before which it finally went down in the lake.

This must be very small and you must have gone very close. Because the legs are in focus, but not the eyes. Since you have titled it peep, I would like to see an image where eyes or one of the eyes is in focus. Also, if you could capture this from the other side of the leaf where only the head of the insect is visible the effect of peep would be more I guess. Was there any chance to do that? I am not sure of the field conditions though.

Abijeeth, you have a very nice series of this theme. A little sharper image, without the shake, would have enhanced the effect? Also, cropping a few pixels from the top would have added to the overall impact? On a separate note, we have a policy of one image per dar per member. If you think these images have to be seen as a series you can use the discussion forum. There you can post these images as a series and seek the opinions of the other members.

Aptly said as 'purple bath' by Prashanth. The introduction of the green leaves is a nice touch. Having tried an image without having that green leaf? Or maybe another leaf on the right side of the frame? That might also look beautiful.

Yes, Vihaan, the bokeh is very nice. Is it a dead cicada? or something else? Try to google. You may find some interesting facts about them.

A moth taking purple bath. A nice image, Abijeeth. And a nice series as well. Keep experimenting. However on a side note, we have a rule of uploading one image per day per user. I can understand the tendency to share, that too series. If you wish to share multiple images (that have connection) you can still do it as a gif. Best regards

Arjun, Welcome to CNP family! We hope you will enjoy participating here. An interesting image to start with. What kind of back lighting did you use? Some kind of cool LED lighting? You may be able to guess refresh rate of your light source if you divide the number of times the legs got rendered by the shutter speed you used!

Welcome to CNP. Fantastic picture Arjun. Craneflies are too fast, capturing them in dark must have taken some effort. Kudos!! Looking forward to more pictures from you here.

Love the way the water and beak are rendered. Low key works wonderfully. The body part I was able to see wonderful faint feather details on other monitors. But on my calibrated monitor they are black. (But I have set my monitor brightness to min level 75 nits to enable satisfactory printing)

Thank you for your suggestion Nevil sir, Sarthak sir and Anders sir. I will try to remove the green cast and try to convert it to BnW as well. Thank you all again for encouraging me.

Hi Ganesh, definitely, and these days i manage to pull out 37 to 39 exposures from a roll sometimes, i think it depends on brand and also loading technique heh heh. i think for shots like this il have to try 400 film but then a little earlier in the evening, but then i wont get the golden glow, so next option is 800 iso film , he heh..and yes playing with film has so many ifs and buts and finding a way to work with whatever is at hand at the moment is quite exciting. 35 mm is the easiest and then medium format and then large format is another extreme ha ha ha i can only imagine the effort and work put into getting images out of the large format camera. Do you have any of those photographs to see , would be a treat to see.

The shot was taken from the fifth floor of a big building , the bird was trapped in to the building and was unable to find a way out . Surrounded big windows was the main light source. The white bg is a white wall and I was able to manage different light sources for the bird and bg at the same time (ie the big windows ....)one source lit the bg and another source the bird...so it was easy to add a high key bg without affecting the bird .Thank you all for the detailed examination of the image

Common cranes/Eurasian cranes, Grus grus. They are actually not so small. The weather was rather bad. Actually, in the early morning when I came, it was unusual dark and I had hard time to see the way to walk there. But it is nice to only sit on such a place and first almost only hear the sound, before the light is slowly coming.

I think, to present all three pictures together would be stronger than only this one. For example printed as a triptych. First the eyes, then the glasses, and last this one! Then the viewer would understand this image in another way than if he/she would have only seen this one!

A fine image. The position/composition is very nice as the net seems to lead us to the main character. And the pose is nice too. I think as the others say: The green cast could maybe be tuned away?! Or actually converted to b&w.
