Nice one. Hanging on to the past which is dried and twisted ....but past creates a identity ....but past destroys present ....life is love only if there is pure " present" ???

Thank you very much for making my day, too, Sir. Yes, this one is my personal favorite for may reasons. It depicts the spiritual journey and the ultimate state of Nirvana that happened to Buddha. Yesterday, I happened to make this image on the way to the University farm where I usually spend my time........ In this wonderful season of monsoon..... A leaf dipped in rain-water gathered In utter silence after a rain shower.... I saw Buddha meditating... And a leaf in the state of no-mind In a narrow trench full of water covering the leaf With a layer of mud over it Created a timeless poem in the deepest recess of my being... Resonating eternal music........ Thanks and regards.....

Hey Vidyun! Welcome back :) I hope your (online) school has started now. Yes, an umbrella for the bugs. Nice image.

Looks very mysterious, haunted and a fairy world, Anders. First I thought a bit of definition would have added. Later when I read about slide I think it is better kept this way. It also adds to mood of image. What is this? The light and the "door"? If I may ask..

Very artistic, Raj. I think a fine large print on Hanhemule Baryta will do a better justice this image. Thanks for sharing.

It seeded a thought in my mind - I think every arrangement in Nature has a purpose of its own and makes sense (to Nature). It is just that we may not know and try to reason them them in our own limited ways, with severely limited abilities. Thanks for sharing, Vageesha.

Looks artistic, Chinmay. Love the color palette. May be keeping it slightly de-saturated may add further to the abstract appeal. Just my 2c..

This is wonderful, Ghanshyam! The first look was intriguing. I spent half an hour staring at the image, reading the wonderful words of philosophy by Dalai Lama rooted in reality and listening to the wonderful music till my soul got bathed in gentle waves and chirping faint poems of birds in the background. Thanks for sharing. My day is made. God bless you..

Thanks Vageesha! I've not used burn tool on this, in fact this is almost the output from the raw converter. Other than levels I've not used anything else. Best regards, Prashanth

Love it . The posture and wingtips seem to make this . That slightly opened beak too . I like the treatment of grass . I can still see the details while the carpet has indeed added to the ethereal impact.

There are a few images here with same caption and this one does the most justice. No complains on another green-vine , no such thing as too much of good. Thanks for sharing . P.S : If there was burning/ dodging used for other parts on snake you may want to attempt at a finer brush , or else just skip the input.

The leaf seems to be on the same plan as water not floating on it . The dark water and the stillness is making this a stopper . Thanks for sharing

Congratulations Vageesha! Initially I didnt spend much time the image, when I did I started enjoying the scribbles. Especially those random strokes by the insects. Very apt for the monthly theme Raag Malhar. TFS Regards, Prashanth

Thank you Vageesha, Raj & Anders. @Raj & Anders: Agree with you, in fact i changed the title couple of times myself. Now, since this image can be interpreted/perceived in different ways, i think its better to leave it to viewers discretion. Thanks again :)

A beautiful picture, I like the mellow tone. The effect of moving the camera is well done in this case. Rajkumar have a good point, often it is better to let the viewer dream a little and chose the interpretation. And here I first got rather confused: "lucky one" did not match with the dark feeling the picture gave. (If the tree is lucky, shouldn't the tree look happy?!?) I had to read the explanation to understand the title.
