We don’t need a description for Lion, they are most startling cats in this entire world. Elegant, beautiful and a thoroughly ferocious animal. I must say, Lions are good examples of male chauvinism :D Just kidding!!!
A very Happy New Year to all my dear friends, followers and everyone across this globe! Hope you’ve a great year ahead :)
“Life on a farm is a school of patience; you can’t hurry the crops or make an ox in two days.” – Alain, Henri
Agriculture is the primary occupation in India. It provides almost 17% to 18% of the GDP in India and 50% of the total workforce. The crop that you see in the below photographs are – Cotton. I currently live in Andhra Pradesh and this state ranks 2nd in current growth rate of Cotton which is around 7.4 million bales. While the first place goes to Gujarat producing around 8.5 million bales.
The Farm Fields are such beautiful places to visit and think about the people living so close to nature all the time. The fresh breath of air and beautiful landscapes are a treat to watch. But villagers in India are extremely poor and illiterate. They live in a single room houses made of mud which often fall to the ground in the rains. In the way they are put to great hardship. In spite of their hard work they are not able to earn enough to provide themselves with even two square meals a day. The governments (both the ruling and opposition parties) have totally forgotten the real essence of India but have lost themselves in the world of corruption and scams.
“To any artist, worthy of the name, all in nature is beautiful, because his eyes, fearlessly accepting all exterior truth, read there, as in an open book, all the inner truth.” – Auguste Rodin
I always believe that “There is no better way to express your emotion than your eyes.”
During my recent visit to the Singur Village where these kids were so happily running around and playing. The amount of joy and innocence that I saw in them is no close to what we get, even we earn a million dollars.This kid especially had very beautiful eyes and I was very keen about his iris. I was thinking of a way to portray this in a special manner, so this is what I thought would suit the best. Let me know if you have any good ideas apart from this.
Also a big thanks for all the support and love that you people have been continuously showing towards my posts and blog. Cheers !!!

Anyway, coming to the lighting part, it was a very harsh summer noon. The lighting was so bright and heat was killing me, but managed to take some photos. I got a bigger collection, but too many photos will just saturate your interest. So here it goes.
I’ve always been a fan of Selective De saturation process photos. I did try a lot of them with cars and other stand out bigger subjects.
But once I came across Mr. Grishman’s Photoblog (http://pinterest.com/grisamiheljak). He has this Red Line Collection where the color of Red was very minimal and yet it delivered an outstanding idea. I once commented in his photos that I’m going to try this for sure. Trust me, I just enjoyed the whole process. Thank you sir!
