When last year's rains had felled a number of trees in Lalbag and were subsequently converted into really interesting figurines by various artists, the number of people who queued up to see them were in plenty. I was specifically asked to go and see them. But somehow I could not appreciate the beauty of these as well as the modified and designed plants as much as I could connect with the living breathing trees with all their raw beauty. Another reason why I avoid Lalbag during the Flower shows and I've always wondered is it so difficult to appreciate something as it is unless it fits into our specifications of beauty? As Ganesh sir has rightly pointed out Beauty is an Irony... we have plants shaped like animals in the parks and the real animals get poached in the forests, and their homes destroyed on a daily basis, what are we trying to do/show here??? this has been my personal view for a long time and this post just brought all the sentiments out.

Thanks Adithya and Prashanth... This really helps. Sorry, I guess I still have to find my way around the forums and let me see if I've some real candidates for this section. Also do let me know if this image has to be/can be moved to the 'Creative & Fine art nature photography' section. @Prashanth - I've some more clicks as the sky changed colors through the evening. Let me see if I've something with a better balance of blue and oranges, or if slightly different processing can help this image.

I just love the depth in this one , the way the road and the sky seem to move to the left to meet (and share their stories? ) I could just get up from my seat and go for a walk down that road...

Thanks Adithya, the main reason of posting it here is because I felt it looked more like a painting than anything else. But on the other hand as I was asking Prashanth also tha if there is a small description below 'Creative & Fine art nature photography' and 'Nature as photo art' , it will be easier to know what to upload where. At least for me it is still a bit of a fuzzy part to understand the fine line that differentiates these categories. Thank again..

I also like the geometric effect in this pic...and the contemplation of the 1st ant to take the next step in the urban path makes it even more interesting.

Thank you Ganesh Sir, yes Nature is synonymous to God and I find myself praying to the skies, clouds, Sun, moon, trees, birds and all of nature around us very often. When the call is really strong, it feels like a irresistible magnetic pull, like there is a message being conveyed and it has to be heard. True we will disappear someday not knowing them and ourselves, but in the time we have with them I hope I'll someday be able to hear what they say. Thanks so much again for the intense and meaningful words.

A really beautiful painting by nature. Exudes such a feel good positive vibe...beautifully captured, the swirls and the flow add to the softness.

Yes the urbanisation is clearly evident...very well seen and presented...this is not something that is easily observed in the daily life though it is always in front of us...

The moment I looked at this image I felt I was looking out of my balcony. The minimalism is stunning and this falls in my favorite type on images. But it is also saddening that this is the kind of view most balconies offer these days with rampant constructions all around. In addition to what I've replied in my image to Harsha, I guess these kind of scenarios challenge us to look beyond and still strive to bring out the best in nature.

@Ravi - Thank you ...It does seem like something you cannot escape, but it also seems like a conundrum. Are we getting urbanized as a photographer or are we learning to see the beauty in everything? @Nevilji - Thanks so much and so true, it is impossible to look anywhere without a tower in the view. This time I decided not to fight it ...Glad the Moon still can shine on like a gemstone even when [b:2irk9hid]caged[/b:2irk9hid] in modern jewelry. @Madhav - Thank you, it does feel like that biut in the heart there is always a hope for nature to take take over again... @Harsha - Thank you. I guess I am just following the age old saying - what you resist will persist. I used to avoid anything like this in my images fervently, but then now all I can hear is non stop construction noises all around here for past 3 years without a break. Sometime when we accept and let go, things change for the better, so that prayer will always be there. I still believe nature will find a way to take back what is truly hers when we least expect. I saw Saurabh's image and the 1st thought that came to my head was, this looks like I am looking out of my balcony. But the bottom line is Mother nature still rules in my heart and soul. @ Ganesh Sir - Thank you so much. Even I am wondering how else could I've made this better. I did not get much time to think here. I was actually waiting for bats but that did not work so well and I got this. I may have to wait till the next full moon and check on how much the moon has moved and maybe figure something out. But any and all ideas and suggestions will be really helpful. Thank you.

It is a lovely concept and very well presented. Agree with Madhav on bit of a gradual transition from dark to light.

@ Prashanth - Thanks, yes stars would have made a definite impact, unfortunately I did not have the access or the possibility to do it at that time. Maybe with some pre-planning it can be worked on. @Nevil ji - Thank you, yes it is in Hampi, I agree, details on the moon would have really added to the frame. But it was a bit tough since I was shooting hand held (since they do not allow tripods and monopods on the rocks) and the guard rushing us to vacate the spot. Maybe with some special permission to use tripods and stay a bit longer a lot of magic can be added to this image with both your valuable inputs. Hope to get some opportunity soon.

It is a beautiful and an interesting image and the first thought which came to my mind was how will this look in Monochrome, then I saw Ganesh sir's comment suggesting the same., and your reply to that too. But being a monochrome addict a part of me is still really curious about the effect. :) Tfs.

@Rajkumar - Thank you so much and also thanks for appreciating the process. There are some people for whom creativity comes effortlessly, but for me it is almost a process of meditation to get in an idea. Sometimes there is a light bulb moment and at others not. Just glad it worked out this time. Thanks so much again. @Harsha - Thank you so much and am really glad both the image and the poem resonated with you. The joy when that connection happens is immense and again really glad that you could connect with what I wanted to convey. Thanks again...:)

A very interesting and intriguing frame....also indicates an acceptance and adaptability to the way of life now where natural perches are not always available.
