Another view of Allen Forest.........

Established in 1971, Allen Forest Zoo was christened after an erstwhile bureaucrat of the Indian Civil Services, Sir Allen. The zoo ranks among the countries best and records a massive footfall. The Kanpur Zoo with its panoramic vistas is a much coveted picnic spot among tourists and local residents.

Hello Ranjan,
beautiful view of allen forest,nice capture and good composition,

very beautiful view of the forest.
i love the light and the slight mist...gives it a little dreamy feel!


It is a bit surprising for me to see these hill-like features in Kanpur, Subhash. It does not appear as if this place is in the plains.
I see a stream in the middle. Is it natural or artificial? Apparently, animals must be drinking from it.
The view is pastoral, to say the least. The animals are grazing peacefully and seem to feel secure.
Good view again.

There is a lovely soft feel to this image. I like the sunlit forward animals and the others fading into the mist. Nice framing with the foreground silhouetted tree.

Hello again Subhash, I realize now that I have seen your pictures and thyis is beautiful! There is something magical in this valley and the foggy light with the animals is beautiful. I really like the curved pond with the bushes and the peace of the surrounding. The animals go about their things with grace and tranquility. I feel all this looking at this picture. The tree framing the picture is real nice too. Thank you!


I love this composition, Ranjan!You give your shots this signature style softness, that it ends up looking like a painting!Lovely shot!

hello Subhash

beautiful scene, with very fine POV, DOF and framing,
i love the off-focus in black silhouette tree branch and leafs,
i love too the smug of the background, TFS


Dear Subhash,
a fairy tale image of great atmospheric beauty.
A zoo that brings you right into splendid nature - what a beautiful place to visit.
Thank you! My best regards,
