..Amal Sircar..

14.6.04..nice meeting you , keep uploading more photographs ..!

16.1.05 - How nicely your photography has evolved over just less than one year ! Sometimes we tend to become too technical and forget the equipment the photographer has used , in your case it is a small camera . Given the limitations , you are doing fine photography . Regards and best wishes ..

Pradeep Raghunathan , June 14, 2004; 01:47 P.M.

hello uncle

i just saw your photo, i am sorry, i was addressing by your first name with all my comments. Just a few things, you have a digital camera and you should keep shooting and experimenting more. It will be nice if we could chat on msn or yahoo messenger. cheers!

Shamik Bag , November 03, 2004; 03:02 P.M.

Thank you

Hello Mr Sircar, I loved going through your gallery, and from what I gathered, you need to pass on tips to improve to young photographers like me rather than the other way round. Not only do you have a great collection, you also have a very 'young' eye. It's been a pleasure meeting you and I'm sure its your humility and enthusiasm that has kept you going. I hope you have very long pictorial life ahead. Shamik (Calcutta)

A.K. Sircar , November 04, 2004; 02:36 A.M.

Hello,Shamik! Thanks for visiting my page and your appreciation of my images. I am also trying to imrove like you. I am sure photo.net will help you. When you see the pics of others from all over the world, you will know the trend.There are many photographers, who will help you. I have many young friends like you, who inspire me. Thank you once again for your prayers and good wishes.

Alec Ee , November 07, 2004; 07:36 A.M.

Very nice portfolio

Hi Sircar, seems like you have a very interesting vacation in the USA. Beautiful images of Yosemite and I see you have mastered the camera. Keep up showing more good work.

A.K. Sircar , November 08, 2004; 01:47 A.M.

Thanks,Alec, for visiting my page and offering your comments. Yes,indeed, I enjoyed thoroughly my stay in USA and felt lucky to visit the National Parks. But I am still a novice with camera and striving to learn photoghrahy and ps. I need your critical comments and suggestions for improvement. A young friend of mine, Mr Tuhin Saha, whom I have never met, is helping me immensely. I must mention that Mr M.Zaffar Rabbani, Mr Gianpaolo Dettoma and many senior photographers are helping me. I seek such help from others also. I shall share my collection with you all.

Jonaki Bhattacharya , November 12, 2004; 09:25 A.M.


Amal, both of us have a great love of photography, but you have gone far ahead. Your photos are indeed excellent,and I specially loved the exquisite shots of the trees. The architecture was wonderful because I've seen all those places,and you have shown Nature at its best.I wish you lots of fun in this journey,and do share it with me,as appreciation makes the effort worth it. Keep going.Jonakidi

subhadip choudhury , November 16, 2004; 05:35 A.M.

A.K. Sircar , November 16, 2004; 11:14 P.M.

Thanks and regards,

Simanta Datta , January 02, 2005; 01:52 A.M.

Your tree shots are quite interesting. You did a great job there, but some landscapes and flowers shots on your portfolio could be better, - they are anyway quite cliched, if I have to make them attractive, I would try to play with shadows and shape a little more .. or to punch some colors for landscapes...

A.K. Sircar , January 02, 2005; 09:29 A.M.

Thanks- Simanta. I appreciate your views. Will keep in mind your suggestion.

Maria Conversano , January 04, 2005; 06:10 A.M.

Fantastic Photography

Its a delight to watch the diverse photos filled with life. It seems as if each photo has something to say of its past n present. I feel it has been a previledge to have u as an uncle, but never knew the hidden talent in you. Keep up the great work. Well, i am a novice, but looking ahead to some tips from u in the new vista of photography.

A.K. Sircar , February 09, 2005; 11:36 P.M.


Arvind Akki , February 11, 2005; 01:10 A.M.

By looking at your portfolio, I was deeply impressed by the natural shapes of tree trunks.This has given a new dimension to look at the beauty of Nature. Normally photographers find nothing to shoot, when they go out to shoot in Nature. Here you have shown that out of nothing, one can create something original and beautiful.Your photographs inspires me to try out something creative.

A.K. Sircar , February 13, 2005; 01:27 A.M.

Thanks-Arvind. You are already an accomplished creative artist and photographer.Welcome to pn. Please upload your creative images at the earliest.

Ilse P , January 04, 2006; 09:05 P.M.

I have recently discovered your photos and have been here a few times since. But before I come to look at your portfolio, I stop to listen to the piece of music on your starting page. It makes me forget my troubles and sorrows for a moment and it clears my mind so there is only room left for the beauty and the little wonders you present here...

Dilip Kumar Singha , January 08, 2006; 09:10 A.M.

Master & Masterpieces:

Amalda & Sirkarda, I am watching your photographs may be last one year or so. Hence, I am not aware of the transformation what a few others have mentioned. Frankly, initially when I read your comments I found nothing special. But when I started looking at your photographs I was really amazed & overwhelmed by the un-fathomed depth. I commented on one or two of your photographs. But, later on I was searching for language and courage to comment on the art works of the master and his masterpieces. Your photographs in folders 'Single Photos', 'Nature', 'Leaves', 'Flowers' & 'Others' are splendid. With all my respect & sincerity I wish you a successful continuance and successive development. Congratulation!

A.K. Sircar , January 09, 2006; 11:44 A.M.

Biplab- Thanks for viewing my portfolio. I am glad that you liked my photographs. I shall extend my best wishes to you for success in your photographic venture.

Anjana- Please visit photo.net more often. Thanks for viewing.

Avishek- Thank you so much.

Ashutosh Rajekar , January 11, 2006; 01:07 P.M.

You obviously are a person in love with nature, and your work to portray it is certainly different from other styles I have seen elsewhere. Your pictures are sombre, and have a deeper meaning to them.

Amazing work, and keep it up!

Mr. Sircar

First, many thanks for posting a comment on my picture. I took the occasion to stroll through your many galleries and was rewarded by a multitude of striking images. Any photographer who can attract even the slight attention of a master of the camera such as yourself would be pleased. Regards, Jack

A.K., did you change the music on your entry page?? It is the same song, but it sounds stronger, more confident and the transitions seem more fluent. I listened to it only 3 times just now. It made the sun come out from behind the clouds...

A.K. Sircar , January 25, 2006; 07:47 P.M.

Ilse,No. I am glad to know that. The purpose of the music is served.

hi Mr. Sircar

you should be given a life time achivement award for all the content of your portfolio. you are so versatille. capable of handling any subject, any location. at any lighting condition. the photos on your portfolio is a mass learning materials for the next generation photographers. im glad i discover your gallery in this big community. one of your biggest fan DSC.

Lee Guthrie , July 16, 2006; 09:38 P.M.

Lovely site A.K. I enjoyed looking at your lovely and diverse portfolio. I like your eye for color. I tend to not appreciate the black and white photos as much as a photo that capture strong primary color.

I wanted to let you know that I have uploaded more Whirling Dervish photos. It is a rather eclectic selection due to the American Sufi influence I have to work with. I have many photos of Zikr; much more than Sema due to the frequency of Zikrs as opposed to Semas.

I have government sponsored Semas and Sufi Semas in my portfolio. I would be curious as to which ones were government sponsored Semas and which are Sufi Semas.

Thanks for commenting so nicely about my portfolio. It gave me more courage.

A.K. Sircar , July 19, 2006; 05:21 A.M.

Demosthenes,let me thank you very much for your generous appreciation. You are too kind.I do not deserve all the praise. I am learning everyday and have miles to go.

First of all thanks for your kind comments on my gallery, I appreciate it. Your porfolio has grown since I visited last.

Best regards. Massa.

Andy de la Cour , May 18, 2007; 03:17 P.M.

It would be impossible to say smething that has not been said already by the many people, who like me admire your work. Your landscapes are truely beautiful, and every portrait tells a storey. I look through your portfolio with a feeling of awe, it makes my work look ordinary. But it does inspire me also, which is what it is all about, I believe. Sharing our images with others encourages not only conversation but the forming of ideas. I look forward to trying to achieve the level of mastery you display so often. Thanks Andy

Sally Delacruz , May 18, 2007; 03:46 P.M.


Wowwwwww! A.K., your portfolios are impressive as well as splendid. You got a lot of numerous interesting compositions.

Thanks for sharing,sally

A.K. Sircar , May 19, 2007; 08:15 A.M.

AM: Thank you very much for your visit and appreciation.

Andy: I am grateful to you for your kind comment. I am in the process of learning.I know I have to endeavour a lot to reach a good standard. Most of my images are shot with a compact camera.I agree with you about exchange of views and ideas.I have learnt a lot from my friends in pn,who encourages me to improve.

Sally: I am glad to know that you like my portfolio. Myriad thanks for your kind words.

Lynne Ross , May 30, 2007; 05:29 P.M.

Thank you


I thank you for the time you take to comment and rate my photos - it is much appreciated. Your body of work has grown since I last checked it out - you have some wonderful photos here - very nice work. All the best from Australia, Lynne

A.K. Sircar , June 03, 2007; 10:46 A.M.

Thank you,Lynne. Greetings from India.

Atanu Ghosh , June 05, 2007; 10:44 A.M.

Amal-da - thank you for taking time to have a look at my portfolio and leaving your comments and ratings. You have an amazing portfolio. But why you do not have postings after September 30?

Regarding your query about one of my photographs (The Lion) - no, it was not taken in night safari, it was taken in daylight. I played around with the levels and tone curves in PS and got a very satisfactory result!

A.K. Sircar , June 08, 2007; 12:32 A.M.

Dear Atanu, I am uploading images regularly every week for critique only. Members are also commenting. I am not interested and happy with rating system.

Mahen Konwar , June 10, 2007; 06:34 A.M.

A true artist you are....

Its always an honour to visit your portfoliio...so much to learn from you. I am also grateful that you have visited my portfolio and commented...I am blessed...

With regards


A.K. Sircar , June 13, 2007; 08:52 A.M.

Thank you very much for kind words, Mahen. I am learning photography.

Samrat Bose , June 18, 2007; 01:00 P.M.

Thanks for leaving a comment on my portfolio.

In this day and age of DSLRs, it is great to see someone taking such great shots with a "simple" digital camera as mentioned above (of course I do not know if you have changed preferences since then!)...it also encourages me as my camera is not a DSLR. I have been in touch with some others like Prabhasda (Prabhas Roy) and Atanu (Ghosh) who are quite good and have been very helpful and generous in providing tips to a starter like me. Needless to say, your portfolio has been a learning experience for me.

A.K. Sircar , June 23, 2007; 09:30 A.M.

Thank you,Samrat.

A.K. Sircar , July 05, 2007; 07:03 A.M.

A.K. Sircar , July 23, 2007; 01:45 A.M.

Over the last year many times I have seen your comments as I traveled around to various portfolios on Photo.net, but until you left a comment on one of my images today, I had not taken the time to see who was this person that comments so frequently in all the places where I go. So this is to tell you that I have been strolling through you many marvelous images this morning and have been most impressed and entertained. I've traveled all over the world, seen great beauty and strange things. You show excellent technical and aesthetic ability. I shall make it a point to come back more often. Kind regards.

A.K. Sircar , September 24, 2007; 02:11 A.M.

David, I am honored by your visit and kind words. I am learning photography from all of you. I do not know grammar of photography and have only a first-generation digital compact camera. Best regards.

Hello Friend!

Well here it is another year is passing away and we are coming into the holidays. I think time starts to go faster as we get older, it was just yesterday I wished my friends Happy Holidays and here it is again the end of a year. The holiday lights are starting to be put on some of the trees here in Dallas, we were out last night and some were lighting the trees. I wish for you all a holiday season with family and friends, after all is said and done all we have is each other.

I want all of you to know just what your comments and ratings on my work means to me, your words are my motivation, my drive to discover, to learn this art that we all love, thank you for taking time and thank you for caring about my works. At the same time thank you for letting us see your world, our lives are so much the same, we all care about our families and friends and we all share the same things, maybe someday our photos will help make for a lasting world peace. May you and your family be blessed this season.

Happy Holidays and Happy Shooting

A.k I am constantly amazed by your portfolio, your talent is second to none. I am still trying to capture the sunsets with limited and no sucess without a big orange blur, but they say practice makes perfect. I think I really need to get to grips with the manual settings on my camera then have another go. You Inspire me to keep going though. Take care. Ali.

Joao Pereira , November 20, 2007; 10:27 A.M.

A.K., I am so pleased now that I found your gallery and can astonish myself with your work. Amazing photos, great talent and technique. Your "Trees" folder is precious, what a great idea superbly executed. I've much enjoyed your portraits and abstracts but, most of all, your work on India. I've only been to a few places in India, but your photos make me think that I need to go back urgently.

You are now on my list of favourites, greetings from Portugal.

A.K. Sircar , November 21, 2007; 07:26 P.M.

nabarun bhattacharya , May 18, 2008; 01:31 P.M.

hey amalda !

remember me. not very likely. well i am back after a prolonged hiatus, to see u going great guns ! had a quick recce of your large collection, was impressed to see the least. your effort and your unwavering love for photography shows in your work. The pieces on Tabo and Shravanbelgola were highly informative and very well done. Heard from Shubhadip you had been to Shillong. Missed u there narrowly. May be next time. In the meanwhile keep on shooting. Cheers.

A.K. Sircar , May 20, 2008; 05:45 A.M.

Steven, thank you very much for your visit and kind words.

A.K. Sircar , May 20, 2008; 05:50 A.M.

Of course, I do remember you,Nabarun. Many thanks for your kind words. Hope to meet you someday somewhere:-) All the best.

B.K. Srivastava , May 21, 2008; 11:30 P.M.

Total Collection

Your entire set of photographs create a colorful and mystical aura around the visitor and he finds himself/herself totally stunned and immobilized for a while forgetting all about the outside world and thinking only about these artistic photographs.

Madhushree Basu , May 22, 2008; 05:21 P.M.

the figures and colors in trees are beautiful. congrats. among the other photos, i loved the portrait of the nartaki. thanks for sharing.

Madhushree Basu , May 27, 2008; 06:53 A.M.

quite an abanindranath :), the difference is essentially in the level of morbidity. enjoyed that 'figures and colors in trees' folder a lot. also some photos in the abstract folder is marvelous.

A.K. Sircar , May 31, 2008; 12:11 A.M.

Srivastavji,I am very glad that you had time to view my portfolio and record your appreciation. Myriad thanks for your visit and encouragement.

A.K. Sircar , May 31, 2008; 12:56 A.M.

Madhushree, let me first thank you for your visit and comment on 22nd May. Your next comment on 27th surprises me. How can you compare my photographs with the excellent and original works of such an eminent painter, Abanindranath Tagore? Do you mean his `kutum-katam`? :-) The shapes & colours on trees are HIS. I have only seen and shoot. Now I have to worry about my "level of morbidity" :-) Can you kindly suggest a cure?

Naseer Fedaee , May 31, 2008; 01:08 P.M.

Hello Sircar - Excellent and WOnderful Folio !!! Congrats -

El Porte-Bonheur , June 07, 2008; 11:23 A.M.

Hello A.K. Sircar

First and for all, thank you for visiting and commenting on one of my recent critique forum submission - which in fact- gave me the opportunity to discover your works. I follow your postings to the 'critique forum' since quite a while - and generally speaking, they always attract my attention. I now took a good look at your exhibition and want to summarize in one sentence: I found a variety of scenes, moods and color combinations which you converted masterly into attrative, high class photographic documents.

Pankaj Purohit , June 08, 2008; 09:08 A.M.

Thanks Sircarji, for motivational comments on my 'Grills n Shadows'

Madhushree Basu , June 08, 2008; 01:55 P.M.

beg your pardon for any kind of precociousness sir :). what i meant is that the expressions on your kutum-katams are more...what should i say, they and their expressions and movements are more crooked and complicated than abanindranath tagore's. i greatly admire his paintings, as in, i love to see paintings in general, but that does not stop me from being a fan of yours. in art, morbidity is a quality i guess. besides, honestly i am too inexperienced a photographer to be taken seriously :). best regards. thanks.

A.K. Sircar , June 10, 2008; 07:05 A.M.

El,many thanks for your visit and appreciation of my images.

Pankaj, thank you Bhai Sahab.

Thanks Srkarji, for comments on 'Folk Music'. I don't find some new uploads from you, or may be you are not submiting those in critiques section...

Pankaj Purohit , June 25, 2008; 10:13 A.M.

Sirkarji Namaskar,

I love to see your pictures, but now you have stoped your photos to submit in critiques section so this is hard to find your new posts.

I would request you one thing, please make a folder named : New posts or any other similar, and put your newest 3-4 photos and move olders from it to suitable category, where you want, So it would be easy to find ypur new pictures for us and we can see those on slow internet speed days...

Thanks and warm regards...

A.K. Sircar , June 27, 2008; 11:07 A.M.

Mr. A. K. Sircar

Thank you so much for your generous rating and comments on my photographs. I have visited your portfolio earlier, and today I have visited it once again; I am overwhelmed by your contribution. I am new to photography and your encouragement means a lot to me. I am astonished to find that you do not contribute pictures these days; I think we all miss something very much valuable. My best regards to you.

What a beautiful and varied portfolio to spend time browsing through. I think you have had a very successful search so far in your "search of Truth, Beauty & Harmony." I also have photography as my cherished hobby in my retirement and have been able to enjoy it for many years prior. You've obviously been able to capture many sights from extensive travel and I also admire your eye for the up close details, shapes and patterns you have photographed. Seeing that smaller detail in the overall scene is an attribute of a fine photographer. Thank you for visiting my page and the time you spent commenting. I'm glad your visit led me over to this location.

Rose Wade , January 21, 2009; 09:57 P.M.

Samrat Bose , April 05, 2009; 09:54 A.M.

Thank you


Thank you for visiting my portfolio time and again and encouraging me through your kind and generous words. It has been most ungrateful on my part for not thanking you enough all through this time.

As things stand, I upload these photos but sooner rather than later, I am dissatisfied with my own work. It has of course to do with the wonderful work of others that I can hardly hope to match. But there is also this feeling in me that I am in search for that one photo which will enable me to admire it myself, but I fear that it will also be my swan song. Such is the restlessness for that elusive recluse. However, I think that as in many facets of life, it is the journey than the goal which provides infinite richness.

Enough of my lunatic thoughts. Here's hoping that you continue your hobby and in the process enlighten and encourage others like me through your work evermore.


Paolo Bevilacqua , April 05, 2009; 05:01 P.M.

You have a portfolio full of images important and well made. congratulations. Ciao Paolo

A.K. Sircar , April 08, 2009; 09:55 P.M.

Samrat, Many thanks for your visit and good wishes. I appreciate your quest for excellence and agony till you reach your goal. Though I am not a critic and/or expert photographer, I felt that your images are of different dimension. Your choice of B & White tone, evinces your taste. I am sure that your aim will be fulfilled. All the best,Doc.

Paolo, many thanks for your visit and appreciation.

Manu Deshmukh , April 23, 2009; 08:48 A.M.

Samrat Bose , May 30, 2009; 02:45 P.M.


Can I request you to please critique a few photos of mine? I have requested both Sonali and Kaushikda to do the same. These are "The Bend", "Guest", "The Portrait". Most people have been kind to provide positive comments on some of my photos but I am kind of stuck at a place with regard to quality.

Can I add that I found the photo you have uploaded as your portrait for your community page amazing? I was totally blown away by the concept. It now adorns my laptop as the desktop image. Hope you won't mind.


A.K. Sircar , May 31, 2009; 06:37 A.M.

Samrat, you have chosen a wrong person for advice. I am in the learning mode. However, I have offered my feedback on those images, to the best of my ability.

Regarding the self-portrait, you are the only person who has noticed and commented. I was entering a restaurant. I saw my image in two doors. I clicked and found myself transported to UK and admired by a physician:-) For your information, I have a pacemaker and stent implanted in past 3 years, to keep me shooting and enjoying this beautiful world.

iMAGO aQUA , June 19, 2009; 11:34 A.M.

A.K. Sircar , August 09, 2009; 03:05 A.M.

Ryszard, you are most welcome, dear friend.

Christal Steele , August 15, 2009; 08:09 A.M.


Having been a member of PN a little over a year now, I'd like to share my observations with you. I have been so impressed with a few people.....and you are at the top of the list. You are a generous and valued member of this community.....so giving and forthcoming with your time and comments, yet virtually never asking anything in return. And I just spent awhile looking through your portfolio. I think you have one of the most varied and interesting collections I've seen. I also think you have a real gift for photography. Most people can take a decent photo of some spectacular natural landmark, but not everyone has your eye to find the beauty and/or interest in the more common and ordinary. You've created a beautiful collection, and I just wanted to thank you for your generous contribution to this community of fantastic photographers. Have a good weekend!

A.K. Sircar , August 21, 2009; 11:36 A.M.

Christal, thank you very much ,indeed. Your encouraging comment will make me forge ahead in my autumn years.

Randall Ellis , September 03, 2009; 08:09 P.M.


One need not consider themselves either an art critic or a photographer to be able to voice worthy insights. Thank you for taking time to contribute your feelings toward my photographs, and for the kind words regarding my biography information - they were both thoughtful and inspiring. I very much enjoyed your work and I will certainly check back to see what you have new regularly.

- Randy

A.K. Sircar , September 06, 2009; 02:34 A.M.

Randall, thank nyou very much. You are welcome.

The greatest gift I have ever given myself is my membership to Photo.net. Not only am I learning more about photography (and hopefully becoming a better photographer), but it has allowed me to meet such a wonderful community of people. To all my friends who have helped me, consoled me, praised or criticized me, and above all inspired me……I offer thanks to all of you for playing such an important role in my life and therefore my happiness. I send you all warm greetings for a wonderful holiday season and Happy New Year! I look forward to many more interactions with you in 2010.

Samrat Bose , January 08, 2010; 03:20 A.M.


Just had a look at your photo on the community page. Very well conceptualised. You seem to be lost in a collage of photos. This one photo seems to capture the entire spirit of your work. Regards.

Kallol Majumdar , January 08, 2010; 01:30 P.M.

Brilliant portfolio, Amolda...excellent journey to art through photography...amazing beauty lamented with poetry...love it... warm regards, kallol

A.K. Sircar , January 10, 2010; 11:33 A.M.


When I joined photo.net few years back, I never dreamt of so much support and appreciation to an amatuer photographer, with average standard. My biggest gain has been your goodwill and good-wishes, which inspires and encourages me to continue the journey and enjoy every bit of it. Best regards and my gratitude to all of you.

Andrea de Bonis , March 18, 2010; 01:47 P.M.

well... very nice photos and very kind person! i love your country

Suvendra Chandra Dasgupta , April 06, 2010; 08:29 A.M.


I have recently joined PN. As I was browsing through I came upon your portfolio. Going through the pictures I realised that I will be needing more than a single day to fully absorb the essence of the beauty that you have captured here. I didn't comment on any of your photos because technically and otherwise they are way above my level of proficiency. I just wanted to thank you for being here!! Your photographs are a tutorial for a rank amateur like me. With warm regards - Suvendra.

A.K. Sircar , April 16, 2010; 10:52 A.M.

Andrea, thank you very much for your kind words.

Suvendra, many thanks for your visit and appreciation of my portfolio. To tell you the truth, I am in a learning process and do not know about grammar of photography. Photography helps me to keep myself engaged and enjoy doing something creative and learn from the works of others.

Jim Tipton , April 23, 2010; 11:43 P.M.


Thanks my friend for a recent kind comment. Your portfolio is rich with life and a joy. Hope this finds you well and in good spirits. Best wishes-Jim

Marjolein M. , May 04, 2010; 11:36 A.M.

Dear Amal, I took some time today (which was still too short :-) to look at your impressive portfolio, and I really want to congratulate you on it! -- There are so many very beautiful photos there, and it is also immensely varied. I can sense a real love for nature, people, and places everywhere in your pictures. I sure will come back to visit you from time to time, and I look forward to your future postings! With kind regards, Marjolein

A.K. Sircar , May 14, 2010; 04:01 P.M.

Vladimir, you are right. Many of friends advised me not to upload picture-post card type of images. My only intention is to show my friends in photo.net, about our country and culture. Thank you very much for your visit and feedback.

Marjolein, you are too kind. It is true I am an worshipper of Nature, Beauty and Harmony. Thank you very much,indeed, for  your encouraging feedback.
