love it. For me it is also golden situation for large format and BnW. The DOF to cover the right hand side BG dunes can be easily done with tilt . Desert national park ?

A lovely setting. Love the tiny elephants and scale. Any other shots by any chance with lesser elephants ? Different compo? May be even a vertical pano ?

Thanks all. Yes, film comes with its own aesthetics and aberrations. On the border. It is the as-is edge of the film as it sits in the film holder. Many 4X5 photographers like to retain it as a part of the final, especially in contact print 1:1 size. I started making Analog prints of these in the darkroom and this is how it will print. A bit of taper in edges is my bad. Just careless mistake

thanks both for taking a look. Yes 4X5 and swing gone wrong. Not sure if happy accident ?. Only right portion is in focus. See how the grains show up more in OOF areas. A learning. Cropped with a heavy heart. Sin to crop 4X5 ( I am shameless cropper in digital !! :) ) Vageesh you got the minitiarization effect. Not my intent though . Ganesh - as of now printing only 4X5 size direct contact print. Will show you some when we meet next. Thanks again

love it. ( I always dreamt of shooting dunes. Not done so far :) ) Varying tones create a illusion. Excellent play of light and shade .

Like the circles as a context. I would loose a large part of the RH tree to match the theme ?

IMHO this will work as a part of a set of photographs that a artist makes as a visual journey. With this the artist engages in a conversation setting a context. Those play of lines has merit for a visual journey.

Thanks Ganesh. These Zen Koans are like puzzles and more about wondering about them than solving. Anyways , I was thinking about infinite variation in say a tree formation. ( Unlike like a human made product like say a particular model of mobile phone. Which are clones ) each of them perfect and imperfect at the same time. Also I added further imperfection with an extreme tilt on 4X5

Actually will work very well in BnW . Emphasizing those dots and the bird bottom middle left. The interesting Paradox will be that seeing that bottom left bird we assume all other dots are birds...may well be true....but still an assumption...

I love the play of the roots and grass. Strikes me that all the democracy and "isms" we invented is inherent in nature

Cropping the elephant creates a very special one for me. Good now but will be great with that crop

A lovely situation. That BG row of the face off works well. For me this one is about shapes and tension. IMHO both will be heightened in a BnW version

Thanks both. @Adithya I visualized like this very similar to the Japanese Sumi-e painting to create that stark shapes and pattern. The thick bamboo clump below this did not add anything
