Banyan tree with roots and trunk painted white to ward off vermin
Wow.. that's weird.
While it was loading for me, it looked like the part at the top was actually the roots - like it was upside down.
How does white keep vermin away?
I have no idea. That's what I was told by our wagon driver. (he said 'rats')
I do know that in areas troubled with armed militants, the authorities paint dark fences and walls white so that people moving around in the dark can be more easily seen.
Interesting subject. My eyes are being directed to the left of the image where the highlights are and not so much on the roots of the tree, which is what Banyan's are obviously famous for. Also, it seems a wee bit on the flat side. Just a touch.
VERY cool. Love that tree. Nice capture
You are probably right about highlights on left.
I tried this a little less flat but there aren't many tones in the white part and it all became too glary for my taste.
