Hey Psych,

Hope you are having a blast! Don't get lost in the beauty of India, do come back soon, we miss you here!

Hi All,

Cheers,

Metroguy, very nicely taken, I didnt notice that there was a bee in it :) lol

ok, here is my novice shots under the guidance of Metroguy and Indilens..

first one is a reflection of clouds and trees in water, next pic...i think tis a
Lizard or may be a species of dinozarus ;) and the third one is a credit to
indilens for giving tips to take this pic....

Ok Metroguy, its dissection time for your pics!!!! C'mon folks take your sharpest available scalpel and have a go at his pics!!!
:twisted:

Metroguy, i was kidding. :wink: The pics are nice. I liked the water droplets on the lotus leaves. Nice Macros they are!

The swan lake:
-has sharp exposure with appreciable depth of field.
-Perhaps those leaves on top of the swan lake pic could have been avoided since you already have people on the right corner to show the scale. Overall, well taken pic.

Natural reflections:
- Very sharp in exposure, light contrast is good with clear reflections. Composition wise, well again, those leaves on the top of pic kind of interferes. Leaves on the right side of the pic appear a bit under-exposed. Overall, an interesting and well made picture.

My vote goes to lotus2 for those lovely details like water droplets on the leaves sharply focussed . Very nice Macro shot!

Thanks for sharing the digital pics Metroguy. Looking forward to other pics as well.

Cheers!

Thanks for the feedback Indi Lens. I didn't notice the hanging leaves in the small screen. I was a bit disappointed when I saw them in the big screen. Thanks for the constructive feedback and vote :P . It helps to have better eyes next time.

Indico, I've seen your yahoo photos, interesting pics they are. Nice editing :wink:

Hopefully pics in the film turn out good. After all, that's where the effort was.
