Thanks Ganesh sir for pointing out the mistake. It is not a robber fly. I did some research and I think it is also not a cicada but possibly a horsefly. The proboscis is short here. Cicadas have a longer proboscis which is folded and kept along the undersurface of the body. And as i remember this fly flew around real fast. It would disappear and reappear near the same perch and my eyes couldn't follow it's flight. Cicadas I guess are relatively clumsy fliers.

'Vanrai' as we call such temples deep in the forest in my part of Maharashtra. I saw my first pit viper close to the deity of such a Vanrai.

My compliments to you Vihaan. A beautifully executed picture. We can just about make out the tulip in the background. Maybe a little wider frame to include more of the tulip for better definition. Not in depth or sharpness but in form. I like the depth as it is.

Yes the robber fly along with the odonates is also among the fastest flying insects, thus another reason for similarity to a bullet.

Thanks Mr. Wahlund . I tried your suggestion of a square format. In my opinion the square isolates the subjects well but restricts the wider interpretation. The balcony signifies my space ( mind and thoughts) which, by the use of the net, I am trying to protect from unwanted intrusion (Pigeons - signifying information) . So I felt that the other cluterring elements also contribute to the picture. Though I do agree with you, aesthetically the square crop does look better. Thanks again.

Thanks Sarthak and Nevilji for viewing and encouragement. Yes the pattern is created by rain on the dusty skylight of my home. I only had enough time to whip out my cellphone and click this before the rain came pouring down and washed off all the dust.

A message subtly and brilliantly put across. A tiger asking the human for help....

Yes Nevilji, a very keen 'eye' you have to spot that eye in the reflection off the water in motion.

Interesting visual Aniket. The thumbnail seen on the small screen of the cellphone reminded me of ' bhindi' printing on coloured background that we used to do in primary school art classes

You have achieved a difficult task of visually capturing the fourth dimension in a still image. If you let the imagination flow you can actually see it in a fine zone just after the froth of the plunge and before the water eases out to the periphery. Regards Vinayak

Thanks everyone for the appreciation and encouragement. Forgot to mention the most important lesson learnt. This process stains everything, so if you are using the kitchen for your experiments, be very sure to spread some newspaper on the kitchen platform. I forgot to do that and my wife was neither encouraging and certainly not appreciative of the mess and stains on her white kitchen platform :)

How would a tighter square or vertical crop work?

Samyak I think you should put it in the other gallery. I am unable to understand the source of the light arc. The curved branch balances the image very nicely.

Spreading hands is also an interesting take on this Ghanshyam. I visualised it as a duster wiping off the artwork on a canvas.

Very powerful image Nevilji. Man is mining for a different gold . Rubble over the golden labernum shows the humans' blindfolded search for a different gold. Real estate is the new gold for humans in cities like yours and mine.
