Wow, should be picked by the spotlight. Love it.

@Diana: Thanks Diana. Saw your clicks and I was spell-bound.. Stunning they were.

Basile Pesso from Barcelona, Spain

Masterpiece (spotlightable again), with a stunning movement of the water in the area of the man, and also about the lovely delicate ripples behind him.
One day, I'd be curious to know which skills Sriram taught you, how long you have studied with him...you are a wonderfully talented pupil and you've got everything to drive on your road with your creativity and knowledge. It's gonna be a fine path.

11 Mar 2014 8:40am

@Basile Pesso: Thanks SO MUCH Basile Pesso. Instigates me to attempt more.. and different...

Sriram from Chennai, India

Basile, Its actually the other way around. Sathya's dedication and sincerity is matchless. He is bound to shine in any field he steps his foot in. What he might have learnt might be limited but what I have learnt from him is immense. Sathya has just started to shoot with such rigor and there is so much poise already. You can take this frame for example.

@Sriram: OMG! Thanks Sriram. Read my "About" page and that says it all.

I'm in agreement with Basile. The most striking part, to me, is the splashing of the water in front of the figure. You captured it expertly in this light. And the "cleansing" splash and your title "A fresh start" makes me think of our ability to start anew each day. Wonderful combination of image and emotion for me.

@Photos by Frances Berry: Thanks a lot Frances Berry. Very encouraging.
