  1. This is beautiful, Bhavesh! Yesterday, my friend, Jo ( aka Poetic Shuttebug ) and I spent a few lovely hours at San Francico's Asian Art Museum which houses several nice objects from India. I had a picture taken with a small statue of Ganesha, one of my favorite of the Indian deities!

  2. It is indeed beautiful – the golden orange against the gray background is very powerful.

  5. Bhavesh,

    Why spoil the photo of Ganesh ji with that stupid cross.
    You are sitting on top this materialistic world.
    Please spare God out of this

    1. If you dare, please give your name and contact details. I'm sure that the most precious things in your life are not stolen yet. I have invested hundreds of thousands of rupees in taking such photographs, which people steal from my blog. If I would not have put that cross, I am sure you too might have thought of downloading the photograph and not give credit to me for putting time, money and efforts in taking the photograph. Imagine you saved some money in some years and bought a car, and somebody stole it. I still think that you will not understand the importance.

    2. Bhavesh,

      I understand your concerns completely. I am just saying keep God out of this. I am sure you are a good photographer, it reflects in the picture too and I really wanted to download this for my wall paper but the cross on God's face does not look good but I live in Jaipur so I can anytime visit the temple and that seems to be an better idea.

      BTW you have very poor temprament and challenging me will not help which I am ready to expect any time any place.

    4. You have still not dared to name yourself here.

      You have clearly stated your intention of downloading the photograph for your use without my consent. Your intentions are not genuine, and you don't even know this. In cyber world, this is equivalent to a thief in the real world. Had I not have put the watermark on the photo, you would have copied the photo and would have spread it everywhere without any payment to me [the original photographer] who has spent a big amount in creating the art.

      May GOD give you some logical thinking if not peace Anonymous GSF.

    5. To keep you happy, I have removed the cross-marks, and have kept only the copyright notice. I hope this makes you happy.

      Just something you may want to read and understand — here is a straight expression by one of the photographers. I have no idea of his identity. He writes…

      This Photograph Is Not Free.

      So this was the first sunset I captured in 2010. It cost me INR 3,99,700/- to take this photo.

      INR 200 in petrol to go from work to this spot and then home. The camera I took this with cost INR 2 lacs. The lens was another INR 1 lacs. The Singh Ray Reverse Neutral Density filter was INR 8000. The Lee Wide-Angle Adapter and Foundation kit was another INR 4000. The Manfrotto Tripod was another INR 12,000. The shutter-release was another INR 2000. When I got home, I uploaded it to a computer that cost me INR 40,000, and then I used Lightroom 3 which I got for INR 3500. I then exported it and tinkered with it in Photoshop which costs about INR 30,000.

      200 + 2 lacs + 1 lac + 8000 + 4000 + 12000 + 2000 + 40000 + 3500 + 30000 = INR 3,99,700/-

      So if you’re a magazine, website, corporation, sports team, or advertiser who wishes to use this photo, please don’t come and ask to use it for free, or in exchange for credit or “exposure”. You found my photo so obviously I have “exposure”. You have an advertising budget, and this is what it’s for. You obviously don’t expect your writers to work for free, or your secretary, or your boss. No one is going to publish it for free. Just because the picture is digital doesn’t mean it was free to make.

      As someone mentioned, THIS single photo didn’t cost me INR 3,99,700/- but if you wanted to create it, from scratch, that is what is involved. So I consider it the replacement value if it’s stolen, or how much my lawyer will send you a bill for if it’s found being used without my permission.

      If you give your photo away for “credit” then the best possible scenario for you is someone will see your photo, contact you, and ask if they could borrow one of your photos… for credit. Try this… next time you’re at dinner, tell your waiter you’ll tell all your friends how good the service was if he gives you dinner for free.

      Hi Bhavesh,
      Thanks for removing the cross from the God's face but now I don't intent to 'download' or use this image anymore. I have a better option, visit Ganesh Ji whenever time permits.
      You got it little wrong, at any point, I had no intention to 'steal' the God's pic from you or any other picture as a matter of fact.
      But as an Indian it looked bad to keep 'God' in this loop. Which may be a beacuse of our different views on this, for you it's just any other picture, a commodity.
      Anyways thanks again for removing the 'cross'.

      Cheers,
      GSF

    7. A commodity is also GOD for me. You will neither understand the real meaning of GOD, nor of art. Leave it.

    1. The pink one may actually be an elephant. This orange one is Lord Ganpati. Story tells that his father Lord Shiv cut his head because of some misunderstanding. And then put an elephant's head to make good.

    1. The world is so different at different places! The scary and fascinating photo is of the lord of first worship in India :) He's the elephant-headed GOD. Before starting any important task, the people of India worship him. He is Lord Ganpati.
