I took a photograph of Montane Trinket. This is a non-venomous and non aggressive snake. These are very common snakes in hill areas of Western Ghats. Exposure details: 56mm, 1/60 sec, f4.0, ISO 100, Center Weighted Average, -1EV.

superb capture, nice work!
Beautiful creature, great focus.
I like this a lot. Well done.
Nice capture although I did alter it in a mod. I cropped away some of the excess and then altered the light and contrast in levels and curves. Hope you like it.
Thanks for comments,
@Graham-Mead: thanks for the modification. it looks a lot better.
Hello, Chaitanya. This image in the CG prompted me to have a look at your portfolio, so I now know that you love and rescue reptiles. There are some very good pictures there, but I have to say your backgrounds, natural as they are, could sometimes be better for your subjects to stand out better. Then you present one with a lovely dark background, perfect. I think you could study composition a little more and then, with the advantages you have of closely encountering all these beautiful creatures, you could come up with some stunning studies.
I would put this one into the category of one of your best and can only echo what Graham has said. I like the twisted shadow of the snake upon the branch, and the way you have the snake's head in focus and yet the branch is nicely blurred. I think this may be because the snake has lifted its head above the branch, whereas I at first thought the head was touching the branch. Very effective. Your focus is on the head, with the eye nice and sharp, so not a lot to critique really.
nice one and nice work
