HI Arun
I like your change in composition. A lot of photos are taken as close to the subject as possible on TN. (Mine included) I guess it is the macro lenses. Your have shown a different result. Where you represent the subject well but also add the surrounding environment which brings interest and colour and allows for more creative composition. Very good colour and detail from a good POV
Thanks for sharing
Best regards
