Startling! is the word that comes to mind when i view this image...probably not the best word, but does reflect my reaction.
Love the dense and jungle-like background, Photosam...this is an image that I think might be lessened by a "perfect bokeh".
Samarth: know what you mean about the bokeh...that is one rule i NEVER keep in mind...

Oh...and interesting quote you attribute to that great architect.
It seems on this occasion he is a little confused by the concepts of "God" as well as "Nature". [grin]
Samarth: lol grin...

Very stunning, Sam...and calming in green. I guess that's part of the point of Nature/God!
Samarth: true...thanks ginnie...

Surreal and very appealing. It is surprising how vivid green on green can look.
Samarth: thanks martin...i was skeptical about trying green on green, but as you say it came out well..

Excellent composition and my guess about processing - something to do with a solid layer?

When you live close to nature and start to realise all the wonders that there are, the equations involved in building it, yes you do realise that it couldn't have just happened. In my book nature proves God.

What happened with the March results and what are you busy with now? Fact of life - you have to earn leasure time. Something about work-life balance. If it comes to that, just blog less - everyone will understand.
Samarth: yup, it simply came out to bit of extra green on top, except for the flower...
did well in exams, thanks for asking...true, i do need to work harder when i have time so i can then have leisure later...

Wow! What an amazing shot
Samarth: thanks a lot navin...
Thats the nearest thing to a virus I have seen this side of an electron microscope. Very cool Sam. Great example of Fibonacci Numbers in nature.
Samarth: really didnt think about the series, but i suppose you are right...
Absolutely fabulous shot, the detail crisp and the dof really makes the green flower head pop!
Samarth: thank you alexandra...
Like the processing, superb shot!
