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.

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.
Pamela.
