[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
at mondarmoni, a hotspot for short weekend trips, it is difficult to find a place to stay. if you are a not-to-take risk type you would probably want to reserve a room beforehand or else you could just take a ride along the beach, there are plenty of hotels and resorts to suite your taste but chances are they might have a ‘no vacancy’ board hanging at the entrance.

you ought to be careful while driving down the beach, for there are muddy grounds and your wheels could very well get stuck. on our way back that was what just happened with us, we were too engrossed enjoying the nature we didn’t realize we were driving on soft surface, and before we could do anything about it, we were stuck. It took us almost an hour and a muddy bath before we could move again :-).

pp. >> desaturated, created a high pass filter layer and the played with curves to convert the image to b/w. used dodge/burn tool some of the areas.

Hello Mayur
Excellent POV, good choice of B/W

Boa tarde
Good b/w in this good composition. I like very much the way you work the B/W. A singular approach to a interesting plce.
My regards

Hi Mayur,
Very interesting B&W photo vith excellent POV, light and perspective.TFS.
Have a nice weekend.


Good photo though and slightly more than it is necessary dark, on my taste in the bottom third of picture....
The description interesting, thanks.
Good luck.

Bonjour Mayur.
J’aime bien cette composition noir et blanc qui attire le regard vers un horizon place très haut dans le cadrage.
Bravo pour cette belle photo.
Bonne journée.

Hello Mayur,
I like the endlessness of this photo, enhanced by the massive "foreground" (somehow occupying 4/5 of your composition). Looking at this scene makes our mind wander alongs the tracks of the jeep and even beyond.
The grainy B&W, with the dark bottom part of the photo echoing the dark sky, creates a fascinating atmosphere, as does the random presence of the jeep and the dog in the "in-between space". Quite surrealistic a photo, but it nevertheless looks coherent and even makes us fully accept the slightly tilted horizon ;o).
TFS & kind regard,
