The Winning Photograph!

In the midst of thousand waves 

In the midst of thousand waves‘This is the time for a new beginning; to get into a new set of movements. Before chasing the horizon, comes the time to prepare. 

Some of his brothers have already left the land, drafting their way by putting up their sails. The sky is also preparing itself to brighten up for the journey of a new day. 

For the sake of survival, all are preparing for a habituated and continuous activity, without the thought that there is no hope of coming back; delivering the sense that life goes on…’

Statement – Like every art form Photography also contains creativity. It is not only a mechanical process but also needs a good visual sense which helps a photographer discover new spaces, shapes, distortion, dynamic ranges, colours, motions and vibrancy, and sometimes, a combination of all. The only limit is your imagination and the reflection of the world which you see with your own two eyes but comes from your soul.
