This is a very nice photo, which is giving cool effect through lush greenery. In my opinion green colour is too much. If it is natural then this is like a heaven. Congrats.

Ciao dear Subhendu,
beautiful image where the green is present in all of its tonalities. Perhaps it is an a little too much saturated, but in every case the chromatic effect is pleasant and relaxing. Compliments!
Ciao, have a nice day!

Wonderful landscape! The monochromatic tones of green, broken by the strong colors of the flags, are wonderful! Must really be a quiet and pleasant place! Good job!

What nice explosion of green tones in this capture! The leafy vegetation of this place, its reflections on the lake, such a special light, and the contrast created by the prayer flags in the left side, compose an extremely attractive image at sight.
It is a scene that inspires a lot of peace.
An excellent work.

A very 'green' image with even the reflections joining in. The colourful prayer flags on the left make a good contrast. It seems like a quiet, peaceful place

Wonderful symmetrical reflections in this emerald green forest setting. Good sharpness & contrasted lighting. The prayer flags at left add a nice splash of color. Tfs. Have a great week!
Angshu (56450) 2009-08-26 23:23
Like the green, so lush & covers almost the complete frame. Simple compo., but the inclusion of the prayer flags did the trcik here with their contrasting colours
belido (19934) 2009-08-28 4:43
love the intense green of this shot. It's such a pleasant seen. The reflection adds a lot to the compo. Very well executed photo and post-processing.
Have a nice weekend,
Urs (14082) 2009-08-28 5:04
Wow this is a brilliant symphony of green hues, congrats Subhendu, except the little flags at the left there are countless green hues, even the reflection is in the same color hues. Due to the pond your DOF is at its best and so is the sharpness. Well done

The colour of the water is really impressive. I also like this simple, but very effective composition with the little reflection on the surface of the water.
Fis2 (88763) 2009-09-02 11:32
I like the frame and reflection in water.
mauro61 (52631) 2009-09-14 2:31
bella immagine quasi monocromatica di questo angolo di natura.
Colori accesi che bene rendono l'ambiente con i suoi riflessi nell'acqua.
Giorgio (11279) 2009-09-17 10:32
