Hi Manuj,
Welcome back to TL!
A splendid wide angle shot of sunset with such an original silhouetted FG. I like the camel and his master as a composition. Good use of the blue hour. Excellent exposure management to obtain such neatness in this presentation.
Good work.

Beautifully composed and well thought out shot, Manuj.

Excellent light, with still just enough of it to colour the distant tents ever so slightly.
The wide angle has given an excellent perspective and even at f3.5, a razor sharp outline to the silhouetting.
Perfect graduation in the blues of the sky.

I'd have been impelled to remove the overhead power lines and the pole just to emphasise loneliness in the desert, and the banners advertising your photography does nothing to the shot for me.
I can understand you wanting to copyright your shots, but on such tiny images on TL, do you think it's worth it?

Still, like I say, technically an excellent shot and I've spent a great deal of time admiring it.


Hi Manuj, I like the low pov under the camel and the strong silhouettes with the sun over the tents. Like Martin I may have tried to clone out the wires but with the light in the sky it would be very hard.The names do spoil the view a little. Fiona

Ditto Madatit's comments. A few notes would be welcome.

Hello Manju

A starry night as the wise men came from the east....I like your take on a classic view of the camel. A great image for the season. well done on using the silhouette as art. Bravo


I like the composition in this shot Manuj, it conforms well with the rule of thirds. I like the triangle formed by the camel and its rope with the sun setting above the campsite? below. Good silhouetting of the figures against the blue sky. I do find the power lines a little distracting but more so your signature which does tend to spoil this good image.


HI Manuj..nice shot...great light and tones...excellent focus and exposure.


Hi - great picture with beautiful light and silhouettes - nice and warm atmosphere and a sense of loneliness.
I do not like the printing on the pic, it distracts from the lovely presentation.
And it would be nice if you would have a little note with the picture.
Kind regards Monika
