It was a smoggy morning. The crow was waiting to be shot. I was the only soul there with a camera. I obliged him.
Shot near Dalhousie Square, Kolkata.

Though it has been captured no ones sight will go to the poor crow, because of wonderful effect you have captured on the top of the frame.
I like the way you have hidden the sun, but at the same time used its light to highlight the dust and the fog. Very well thought out and executed. I would have loved to see a bigger pic of this spectacular moment.

your well chosen view point has enabled you to hide the sun and retain the rays,well done,it has a magical effect giving the shot lots of drama and interest,oh yes,I nearly forgot the poor crow is lovely!

Très intéressante explosion de lumière matinale et belle atmosphère brumeuse. Une belle présentation et bien vu l'oiseau en avant-plan. Je me demande pourquoi la photo a été publié à 540 pixels car maintenant on peut publier à 1500.
Tous mes compliments,

This is a very interesting and fscinating composition. You have handled the morning light very well to create a scenery filled with hazy sunrays and the actual sun seen like a hand-painted star between the branches of the tree. But why did you make this fine picture so very small? It would have had a much greater impact at a larger size.

light in this photo makes it very special. The way the sun shines through the branches of the tree and how it casts the golden color on the road is priceless. You managed it very well and the result is really good.
Thanks for sharing

Great... It is just great in the sense of light... in the sense of colours. It would be better if you had wait a bit for any person (in foreground) with a long shadow created by morning sun... That would created a 3D atmosphere. Though, it is also a great one with the beautiful sun burst through the branches. Love it a LOT. Khub sundor hoyechhe. Tfs.

Hello Alekhya - Marvelous light and a well managed exposure are the key to the success of this shot. The actual composition becomes almost secondary when you have a fabulous back-lit shot like this! Warm regards rosemary

top marks for originality and intrigue here. This is a creative and wonderfully executed shot, with an irresistible commentary accompanying it. Well done on both fronts. I like it! It works superbly.

A shot that focuses your attention on the main interest, the dusty situation in the early morning beams of warm light and almost the best composition you could hope for rendering it real atmosphere and help you to imagine being there as we imagine it. The colours, contrast and the effect enhance the picture which is further beautified by the starburst effect, Well done my friend, Congrats

A pity a very small picture with a wonderful subject.
Maybe a advice for future for make a bigger picture.
Everything wonderful sharp and clear.
Excellent depth and perspective picture.
But your picture is very well taken.
Nice done, TFS.
Enjoy the day ahead,

The light is interesting and has created a magical mood. As for the crow, I am not sure it deserves to be shot, after all, it is one of God's creatures, it has a right to live, too.
