The photo on left was taken near Gopalgad (Guhagar) during a bright sunny morning. It was a two day biking trip Satish and myself had just after celebrating Diwalie. The original photo is cropped from left, almost 50%, to bring it in portriat mode. The new photo gives a direction to the viewer from the deep blue sky to Satish walking towards the tree on right. The light streaks of clouds fill just enough life into picture avoiding the emptiness that would have arised possibly if they were not present.

Please note the blueness of sky and a very short exposure and try to relate them. This effect can be more prominent if one uses a graded blue filter for the top quarter of the image.
