Comments: Very nice image Amrita. The top angle worked wonders. I love the saturated blue in your landscape. In fact you have a very nice tonal rage of blues (different shades of blues). The image has been composed well. Overall a very good image.

Comments: That’s a very interesting image Sumantra. I like the angle that you have selected for the shot. The color of the leaves have come out quite well. Also the peek-a-boo with the clouds look interesting. The leaves against the sky make an interesting pattern.
Good shot Sumantra.
