Thanks mate. Every corner of Lalbagh is interesting in its own way. This is just one of them.

good start with the black-and-whites. i loved the mood of this picture, the silence, the stillness, the light. however, i think this picture could have been slightly better composed. you could have taken the frame a little towards the top or the bottom. this way you could have laid emphasis more on either the trees or the foreground with the fallen leaves. in this picture, i think, the viewer's attention is somewhat divided. nevertheless, a beautiful picture..

Vivek has a good point in terms of composition... the light and the mood are wonderful and brings a sense of warmth to the heart

This tree reminds me so much of one I was in love with throughout my teen years... really a tree that I miss so much. Who would think one could miss a tree.

I hate posting after vivek and kishore because there is nothing left to say but that I agree with them. Composition a bit off, but nothing tragic. The lighting and mood make up for it (IMHO) and I remain drawn in.

Amazing picture...
Light fills up the empty spaces to create that perfect mood.
And that emptiness pulls me into the picture

@A, Vivek, Kishore,Uber, Jess, Sri, Satz: Thanks guys.

I wanted to capture the play of light at the tree's background and at the same time didnt wanted to miss out on the fallen leaves....maybe should have composed both ways...thanks for your suggestion guys

Do you have one with the focus on the empty bench? Would love to see that.

I rightly said, you must not stop posting your landscapes. You do them just beautifully. One thing I agree with Dr Vivek, that I wanted to see more of the tree. Now I wonder if that'd mean too much of the bright sky that'd spoil the image. You don't know until you shot that

i liked this picture a lot too sudarshan. The empty bench and the trees with the light streaming in is a great subject.
But you needed more of that lovely texture of the land or more of the trees, meaning to shift the horizon away from the centre. Good going... congrats. I saw the full version kousik, and the focus is on the bench. the clarity and the magic of the picture is so much better there.

@A: The focus is on the empty bench...but I dont have a close up of that..as I said I really should have tried different shots as Vivek and others suggested.
@Kousik: this one I couldnt resist ..Thanks Kousik!
@Lavannya: Thanks Lavannya. I know now that I really should have tried different shots....bad miss I guess.

The vastness and emptiness in the picture add the depth to the image. The sun streeaking down from the top looks really good. All in all, a beautiful picture.

I disagree with the comments about the composition. Even though this photo does not follow the classic "rule of thirds", I think your composition works well here. Any more of the ground, and you'd lose that wonderful lighting in the treetop. Any less ground, and it would take away from the core idea of the shot

Hi Abhi. Thanks for your comments. But i thought I should have tried different angles when I had the opportunity.
