Thanks, Adithya and Adithya. BTW, this image was not a part of the quiz. So, no prizes for the right answer! ha ha

I think the lack of bright green spot would have made the image less lively. The bright blue and green colors bring life to an otherwise static subject. Good job Vihaan!

very well seen and presented Vidyun. Keep practicing this skill of seeing and it will take you a long way. The green background against the orange orangutan's face works well here.

The dark tones, the odd number of trees against the even number of birds works well here, Sarthak. Thanks for sharing!

Looking at the thumbnail, I almost wanted to say that the borders are too strong for this image. :) However on a closer look, no border is too strong to nature and it can take care of itself!

The dark tones and the soft focus definitely makes it look like nature's scrible. Thanks for sharing, Ramesh!

Many a times, well learned people look down upon these tribals as unread or less sophisticated compared to city dwellers. And here you have an example of their lifestyle which shows their indepth attachment to the world they live in. This process/ritual of constructing a temple while facing a personal loss only shows how well they are connected to nature compared to city dwellers for whom forests have almost become alien land..

Scary scream Adithya. A bit more contrast to bring more depth in the eyes and the mouth may make it scarier.

Very interesting one Prashanth. The "aura' (since it's not bokeh or moon, not sure what to call it) is what makes the image unique.

From the thumbnail, I thought the bird is the horns of a goat/ Nilagiri Tar. :) Nice "through the foliage" image.

Thanks Ganesh. This is actually the foreground that is creating this effect. This was shot through a small opening in the ಅಡಿಕೆ ಚಪ್ಪರ (traditional wooden pendal on top of which the processed beetle nut is dried in the western ghats of Karanataka). Here is an image of that https://www.facebook.com/photo.php?fbid ... 1181094611 Best Regards,

An interesting frame, Prashanth. What is in the background? Moon or an out of focus planet or a street light?

Thanks, Ganesh, Sarthak and Adithya. You are correct. This is the IR version. Usually the light tone of the foliage in sun light and in shade (notice the bottom foreground) is the giveaway clue. Adithya, it is truly an old growth forest. It is the Muir Woods, California.

Thank you Sarthak, Nevil @Nevil - There was a beutiful web in between barbed wires. Those dots are debris created by debris collecting spider. They skillfully hide behind one of those debris.
