This is a photograph of a slot canyon which is known as Antelope Canyon. It is located near Page, Arizona. The erotion due the water flow has transformed the Navajo sandstone into remarkable forms of complex beauty. You can only enjoy this spectacular view of nature at day time in presence of the Sun. No special effect or enhancements were added. I see here two human faces coming together - a sign of romance created by Nature!

Okay..I have seen lots of these on photo sites, magazines, etc...and I have to admit this one is very unique. Nice capture and very creative with the looking upwards angle. Looks like a head on the upper right.

Hi Dipak, Welcome to TE, you have begun with a great earth inside shot. The light is really impressive, with blue and red tonalities. I like to see the illuminated part surrounded by this dark zone. This increases the effect of the light.
Congratulations for your very good first post, keep posting!

kaud (1840) 2005-06-06 8:12
What a shot to start with TE!
Great light, exposure and silhouette.
verge (1242) 2005-06-06 8:56
i really thought that this is a textile with fire in the thumbnail. I admire the POV, the sharpness and the color. well captured...rgds
caspita (395) 2005-06-08 13:12
Hi Dipak. Very impressive. THe colours are vivid. You show great depth. Yes, appears to be faces here. One of my favorite photos on TE. Thanks.
eugeneahn (298) 2005-06-23 11:17
Great eye imagining the profiles of faces. Makes looking at this rock formation like looking at clouds.
Carlo (260) 2005-06-23 23:11
Cant' believe this doesn't have way more points by now. Beautiful colors and textures. I hope to make it up there sometime (was in Page recently but didn't get to Antelope Canyons).
Also in your shot here I like the appearance of the face in profile.
The only negative I could see is the intense light bleeding over the shadow with a purplish tinge, at least that's how it looks on my monitor, but these are tough exposures.
sn00zie (2384) 2005-06-24 12:14
FANTASTIC... truly a masterpiece.. really stunning picture.. well seen and captured.. i too see the two faces..
erdna (5711) 2005-06-24 17:00
I have seen photographs similar and for you to capture as good as tem is a triumph in for you as an amateur hotographer. The play of light is beautiful with an added beautiful accident. Ver nice Dipak.
pnphan (3957) 2005-06-24 18:30
this is a very interest photo, I really like how the light created the affect for this shot, I been to slot canyon many years ago without a camera, what a big mistake. Hope I can visit this place in the future
thanks for sharing
Marlis (2298) 2005-09-06 10:54
I can never resist a photograph of Antelope canyon.
Congratulations, what a great start as a new member!
I would have been tempted to reduce the dark areas slightly, but that is a personal preference.
PauloAJPires (294) 2005-09-06 10:59
Dipak, great photo... Congratulations...
I sugest to put an black passepartout with a white line... And an pretty signature
prumod (8300) 2005-10-14 8:18
you're a brilliant photographer... it's a really a masterpiece capture... it's tones, details and sharpness are very fantastic...
partha (14020) 2005-10-17 13:59
I think this is your best work.The composition, colour everything is so nice.
gebala (0) 2005-11-12 13:26
hello, beauty is this shot, really this is true romance, I see it here, nice colours with great point of view, exellent work
Salil_B (737) 2005-11-14 20:13
An excellent imaginative photograph you have here. Very good point of view. You must have taken a lot of trouble to get the angle just right. The exposure is also very well done.
One point. Where did the nose (a shodow? Or, a cut in the rock behind?) on the 'male' face come from?
HNIK (1104) 2005-11-16 11:26
What an amazing shot,Dipak!
Great POV,with so nice colors,what nice curves with so nice light,I can't tell more about it,i'd like just watch this great shot,
Perfect and Excellent look you have,Dipak.
clic (14374) 2005-11-18 18:27
So graceful natural shapes!
Perfect exposure on a difficult subject.

Wandering_Dan (3449) 2007-08-20 10:19
I've seen a lot of slot canyon pictures, and this is one of the best. A unique angle and composition - and the heads are a bonus.
You are bleeing a little light, as Carlo said. The one on the left doesn't bother me, since it adds that nice blue, but the one on the right (under the "chin") could be toned down. Maybe the light in the opening could be yellowed a bit.
Overall, a lovely play of light and shadow, and a new perspective on an old classic!
manatee (4658) 2007-08-20 10:57
Beutiful, amazing picture, I like the ligth and the angel you use in thsi pciture, we can see the texture and color of this canyon, I would like to visit this place I live in the South San Diego, maybe soon I can visit this amazing place.
Thank you for Sharing
