[Iqbal, I am cut pasting my comment on the same image you posted on "Young photographers' gallery". Next time please post a given image in only in one of the galleries] Welcome to CNP, Iqbal! I hope you will enjoy participating here. A fine composition to start with. I love the tiny ellipse within the large empty rectangle. The scale seem to work very well. Looking forward to more of your creations. I did see you Instagram profile and pictures. You have a very promising vision, Iqbal. Since you have posted here in young photographers gallery I assume you are a budding young photographer. I take this liberty to share a few words about what we do in CNP. This may help not to get frustrated in future! We are a small, very conservative forum, unlike groups in Facebook or Instagram. People take their own sweet time to think and post critiques, views. Please be patient with us! Some of us will finally say a few words. When we do that we normally share some genuine words (more than just useless 'Ohs' and 'Ahs' that you typically see in other social media sites). You will not get lots of comments on each of your posted images. We will not count number of comments here! The forum is full of wonderful, extremely talented nature photographers. You may also learn from their images, discussions that happened on some of the images. We have forums to discuss topics of interest in photography. You may browse the past threads. There are some treasure in our forum threads accumulated during past 10 years. Take your time and browse! Over the time I think the time you spend here will be very rewarding. Also, please feel free to post in other galleries. Having see your Instagram profile I was pleasantly surprised to see your image here in "Young photographers' gallery". I hope this sets right expectations :) Welcome again!!

The wall is always limited, life is always unlimited....! No wall can imprison nature. Nature conquers all. This image is an amazing depiction of modern man today....he is walled around and tied up in physical and psychological slavery of all sorts. He is leading leafless and lifeless life.......like a twig in the image....urban colour adds a lot to the mood of the image.... Thanks and regards...

In a very weird way the red oof light on the left looks like the rising sun and the white grey circle on the right looks like a setting moon and in between is life... :) the whole thing makes it very interesting.

Thank you Ganesh, RD and Prashant! @ RD: You read my mind sir, those are exactly my thoughts. Glad i could convey. @ Ganesh: This is inside my apartment (next to lift lobby). This portion perpetually devoid of sun light and rain, which resembled a prison cell to me. Though the plant is alive, its just hanging in there...

Gradation of the wall makes it very interesting for me with the dried twig. RDs description guides further. Brilliant image Madhav.

That plant is a prisoner, The marks on the wall are from prisoners erstwhile. They made the marks trying to grow beyond the wall. Indeed CNP is ART OF SEEING. Thanks Madhav. - RD

Intriguing image, Madhav. Please explain the title, why "prison wall"?

I think this is the best of all the images I have seen from you so far! Is that the stem of rose plant? I think human tendency to "grow Nature" at home appears very aspirational to me!

Wondered about those long connections. I hate dumping all these mystery under one word called "evolution"/"random mutations"/"natural selection" etc. How distasteful those are!! We the human race seem to be under pressure to explain everything with reason, why can't we just wonder about it instead of being compelled to invent a hypothesis and take shelter under 4 billion years and statistics? Just wondering...

@RD Sir Feel elated to hear you on my image. The previous link was not working to play, but now this one is doing. I listened to it, enjoyed it though I didn't get the lyrics, but with the help of your context I could do it rightly from its melodious notes. How sweet and romantic it is to listen to such music in some 'Solitude' where there is no chattering of whatsoever, but sheer poetry, music and eternal bliss. Thank you very much to share lines and vocal. O that I were able to understand the meaning of it! Thanks and regards...

A fine note, RD! Enjoyed the music too. The language of music belongs to heart, not head. I think no background music added a lot.

Beautiful image. This reminds me of your image from Corbet of a pug mark alongside jeep tyre traces. Two images say that photography is about light than subject.

Very nice image. I would have preferred much darker zone for the ducks than those three big darker patches. Those three darker patches, if could have been avoided it probably would have been much better.

Thank you everyone for the comments and welcome. I have reset myself for a new beginning. "Any words to elucidate why it is under the monthly theme.i.e.philosophical nature photography?" The colors of the leaves change to indicate the onset of the season. Although our calendars may indicate the onset of the new date, month or year with changing climatic conditions, we can only rely upon such indications of the nature. The colored leaves among the greens is a clue for onset of a new season.

Ghanshyam, This image reminds me of the following poetry in Kannada by a very young poet "Kavanatanaya" these four lines : " ರಾಧೆ ಮುಟ್ಟಿ ಬಿಟ್ಟ ಮೇಲೆ ಕೊಳಲಾಯಿತು ಬಿದಿರು / ರಾಗ ಹುಟ್ಟಿ ತಟ್ಟಿತೆದೆಯ ಸಿಹಿ ಮಾಧವನುಸಿರು // " which i can translate to (to the best of my understanding) Context : Radhe is waiting on the bank of a river yamuna and scribbling on the sand with a bamboo ... translation of above four lines : the bamboo became a flute after Radhe touched it, a Raga is born and touched the sweet heart of Madhava (Krishna) complete poem is here : i am not sure if you can understand the lyrics but effectively this relates to your image. -------------------------------------------------- Lyrics: Vishwanath Kavanatanaya Vocals: Dr. Latha Damle Lyrics: ಮಳಲ ಮೇಲೆ ಅಳಲ ಬರೆದು ಬಳಲಿದವಳು ರಾಧಿಕೆ / ಕೊಳಲಾಗಲು ತೊಳಲಾಡಿದ ಬಿಳಲಿನಂತ ಗೋಪಿಕೆ // ಜಗದ ಚೆಂದ ಮೊಗದ ತುಂಬ ತುಂಬಿ ನಗುವ ಶ್ಯಾಮ !! ಬರಿದೆ ಬಂತೆ ಬೆಳಕಿನಂತೆ ಕೃಷ್ಣನೆದೆಯ ಪ್ರೇಮ ?! ರಾಧೆ ಮುಟ್ಟಿ ಬಿಟ್ಟ ಮೇಲೆ ಕೊಳಲಾಯಿತು ಬಿದಿರು / ರಾಗ ಹುಟ್ಟಿ ತಟ್ಟಿತೆದೆಯ ಸಿಹಿ ಮಾಧವನುಸಿರು // ಇನಿತು ಬಿಡದೆ ಬಿಡುವ ಕೊಡದೆ ಕರೆದವಳಪರಾಧವ / ಇನಿಯನಾಗಿ ದನಿಯ ಕಡಲ- ಲಡಗಿಸಿದನು ಮಾಧವ // ಉಳಿದು ಹೋಯ್ತು ಇಳಿದು ಹೋಯ್ತು ಯಮುನೆ ಮಣ್ಣಿನಾಳದಿ / ರಾಧೆ ಶ್ಯಾಮಗಾಗಿ ತಂದ ಕಣ್ಣ ನೀರ ಹಿರಿನದಿ // *ಕವನತನಯ* ------------------------------------------------------------ to listen to Dr. Latha Damle's rendition : https://youtu.be/b5tFif4TiFg best regards, -RD

Sir, I thought none will look at this image as I looked at and none will feel the way I felt, but I have a very few names, in my 'Diary of Nature', who have the same vibrations on the same plane of perceptive visualization otherwise nobody takes care of looking at my images that are in a way nothing to take a note of it. But for me, it is my flowering and blossom of my 'solitude'. I have nothing to share anything more than this. I often watch my images with music I embed when I am all alone and I get engrossed in my own world of my own imagination. Thank you very much for your motivating words......
