It is strong, but simple.
This photo was taken in my favorite place- The Bayon Temple in Siem Reap, Cambodia. The sculptured heads of Avilokeshavara makes for a surreal setting in this exotic location. I was hanging around taking in the energy of the place when these little monks walked in to the frame and this made for an ideal shot, you couldn’t have asked for more. Shot with my Canon 5D Mark II and 24-105 lens and at 400 ISO at f/4, 1/100 sec and 105 zoom.
Amitava Chandra Annakut
This is one of the rituals performed towards food-security in which boiled-rice are tossed and several-thousands devotees gathered there, try to collect even a bit of the same under a hysterical ambience considering the same as a pious one by god’s grace and with a popular belief that consuming a grain or two will ensure the life-long food-security.

Vienna Opera House
The original theatre, located on the Ringstrasse, was built in 1869. The Opera House is one of the most majestic pieces of history in Vienna. And a show is a piece of art. Guests are arriving in limousines, red carpets are out, the woman in the most beautiful evening gowns. The Orchestra is flawless and the Flying Dutchman in theatre left me breathless.
This shot was taken during my trip to Pin-Parvati Pass which is also known as Louis Dane Pass. After 3 days of trek we reached here in the afternoon. Particularly, this place is called Tunga-Bhuj. I noticed the falling sun’s rays on the mountains. In this part of Himalayas, mountains are mostly rocky and that’s what makes it resemble the famous Yosemite. Though I saw everything in colour but I imagined this frame in black and white due to its closeness with the famous shots of Ansel Adams from Yosemite. After returning I processed it in black and white and felt quite satisfied with the output. I like the different shades of grey in the picture and this is what makes it so special to me.

After taking a color theory class, I wanted to experiment with new color combinations. With a limited palette, I found that I was able to capture the drama of the afternoon sun and the cool shadows in my digital painting “Cold Afternoon at the River.” The power of the color in this image was pivotal to how I now approach my palette.
