An object as small as this holding the frame on its own makes the image for me Ravi!

Interesting Adithya! For me it is nature in the way it is titled, and art, the way it has been treated and appropriated to say something more than a snake. Burning little more colour in the lighter part of the frame would bolster the artistic intent further. As it is, the snake mimicking nature's braid tying various strands into one moving, sleek intent has something Chinese about it, especially the green colour.

Does the appeal of all enduring grass ever fade?...Those tiny thin in focus brows make it for me. Wondering if lightening birds'perch would help... Thanks for sharing

Reflections make us reflect so you're right in saying "nothing to say...". I believe quietness is the eloquence of visuals. What we see depends not just on us but the intervening space in equal measure which is water here. Applying the image's metaphor to life in general our perception is modulated by the rippling environment of society. Paradoxically, while we like the modulation here, objective seeing would demand filtering out the ripples. Thanks for a thought provoking image

Ditto Nevil, Gaurav. Nostalgic title finds strong echo in the visual with washed out colours and a precarious down the witness to the passing tale. Thanks for sharing

Raj has hit the nail on the head. I too believe art is about the artist and his/her vision ( further elaborated by Ghanshyam) whereas natural history is about the object. Art by nature if subjective, natural history objective, of course with variations here and there. In the end what Ganesh said is true that we can not have consensus about what is "fine art". But Ganesh with some uncertainty isn't it possible to locate art? The shot in question posted by Saurabh to me appears natural history in spite of the back ground for the very fact that he has let the moment be, without any willful attempt at portraying his intent which is other than what is visible. Having said that A fine image Saurabh! Your question really stole the thunder :)

Revisiting...on second thought is this an experiment? Looks like an exercise in seeing...is it? or am I dreaming :)

A fine image Nevil. Love the way the animatedly-inaniamte form balances out the frame visually. Of late I've been thinking about titles and how they affect interpretation. If I don't look at the title, beheaded might be one thought crossing my mind alongside others like a striding, animated & sculpted form, beautifully textured mid tone balancing out the frame, and, many more if we dwell on it further. In this image particularly title restricts it for me. Thanks for sharing

What a choice of speed. Makes water a bird and bird water. To me the image appeals better square cropped with left half excluded. Also a bit lighter beak might improve merger of bird and water. Thanks for sharing

Thanks for your suggestion to open up the image a bit. Will try it out. Saurabh regarding the philosophy part..well it is difficult for one to ascribe philosophy to one's own image for it has been clicked in an instant. I believe that we all have our sweet spots which resonate with our creative impulses. When the moment arrives to capture us we are there to register through camera. At the most what I'll say about this is that life as it existed at the moment of shutter release appealed to me. All I did was maybe not foreground any particular aspect. It is twilight as twilight. Not sure if it answers your question....Sorry for not responding early coz I was awfully busy at work.

Thanks Ganesh... "where does this ladder lead us to" 'Other side' of the Nature? A pertinent poser. Well it does seem to suggest presence or existence on the other side but at the same time the ladder itself got intricately entwined, even partly rooted in ground. Verticality of ladder affording deeper, farther vision broken by lateral stretch of vines; strands of time here and now... Big thanks Adithya! We all have reasons to take/make photographs. For me it is unease as you say you too feel. Where language deserts camera comes handy. Raj maybe ladder was placed there as a cue...yes if we keep holding on and don't actuate the cue, we are stuck then.. Ghanshyam the Rad!! Ladder to climb down whoa... No better re-invention than this.

Evocative image Ganesh!Love the genteel blur on the reeds. Softly rendered bird would go better with the bottom half in my opinion. Thanks for sharing

....Visually speaking do you have a variant with different positioning of tree? and denser population of birds on the top?

Whoa! How subtle the veins of life with green and gold, nascence and maturity. Totally agree with Nevil with you trying out radical out of things mundane. To me the visual is significant in its appeal enhancing our understanding of unity of life undivided by birth and death. This sort of binds all thought on the subject through creative sleight! Lots of love!!

Deeply metaphoric visual Thirangini! Sharply defined Araucaria leaves/bristles seem to have a silent connection with phantoms in air. The tree did travel! and birds found home walk up to them. Thanks for sharing

Now this is something Yallapagouda! A small being anchoring entire frame. Very smooth flow of gaze starting from the insect, over the ridge to the left, roof on the top and closure given by vertical branch just behind the ant. Home it is, comforting and secure. Thanks for sharing

Earlier post was better in my opinion as it truly captured the insect in its environs... Tad too dark this one Thanks for sharing

Age is just a ring or ringles :) All those scrathes, bruises, blisters, calluses, rings and wrinkles alike signifying life fully lived and what a way to bring it out. Thanks for sharing

Nice attempt Dhaivat. Progressively reduced chatter of mind makes a fine statement through triptych. Wonder if intermediate stage is required between !st and 2nd... Thanks for sharing

Welcome to CNP Dhaivat! Wish you a creatively pleasant stay here... Beautiful image as opening shot. In my opinion left side of the frame is grabbing more attention due to overwhelming white on the crest. Personally I'm ok with the speed and believe the whites have room for texture to bring out character in the tubmbling wave. Thanks for sharing

How your muse catches you! Throws up many questions. Are we looking at opposites? or where opposites dissolve? how does brown earth produce green and myriad other colors?
