And THIS is what they're REALLY for! by dudler

And THIS is what they're REALLY for!

Totally agree with you. When my daughter was young my wife breastfed her in public. Most people didn't notice, and if they'd have made a fuss I'd have told them to get a life.

Butterfly, Again! by IshanPathak

Butterfly, Again!

Hi Ishan, I think that the processing means that this has become a photograph of the flower with a butterfly on it. Looking at your original I think that you could tone down the flower so that this becomes a butterfly photo. When there is a very bright colour in an image our eyes are drawn straight to it as the eye/brain tends to concentrate on the dominant aspect of what it's perceiving. Try putting your hand in front of your screen so that the flower is masked and suddenly the spotted body of the butterfly becomes much more obvious. The background here is absolutely perfect for making the colours of the main subject stand out, it's just that you have accentuated the dominant colour and so taken the viewers attention away from your principal subject.
You seem also to have masked the head with one of the petals, so I do hope that you have more versions with the whole butterfly.
Keep working on it, you are getting there.

Well observed. I'm always looking for something different with this sort of place.

I think I prefer v2 as it is so true to life and the colour of the scarf is so vibrant.

Lovely. I remember these in my parent's garden in Northern Ireland back in the 70s, such beautiful little birds and relatively tame.

A wonderful set of photos Prabhas. It is so wonderful to see wild tigers, and you were very fortunate to see her for so long.

Sub Adult Tiger by kanhatiger

Sub Adult Tiger

A fine shot and I sympathise about not being able to get a wider view. I'd be tempted to do a portrait crop just behind the shoulders. It would make for a stronger image.

Hi Prabhas, again these are lovely, but they're still plum headed parakeets.

Ring necked Parakeet by prabhusinha

Ring necked Parakeet

Hi Prabu, a great shot and these are lovely birds, but they are plum headed parakeets. The ring necked parakeet is the plain green bird. I was pleased to see several pairs of the plum headed parakeets in Ranthambhore two years ago. I'll be in Kerala in a few weeks so I hope I'll see some more.
All the best,
Alan

Taj reflection by alansnap

Taj reflection


Quote: I exactly know from where it is taken.. agra is my wife's city and i visit the taj once every year.. every time i visit i find a new experience.. sometimes it overwhelms me to find together people of so many nationalities, origins, ethnicities and fills me with a sense that boundaries are being broken.. silence too is enjoyable here, but you are not likely to find it (but i see you got in very early and a bit of loneliness).. though i have never visited it on full moon nights, i have a feeling that they do allow tourists on full moon nights.. what a magical experience that would be.. i have to explore myself..
best of luck.. good shooting.. india is a wonderful place to take pictures.. cheers. Smile

Thank you so much Pamab, our only sadness now is that we waited so long to visit your wonderful country. Not only is there great beauty, there are wonderful people and overwhelming cities. This time we are spending most of our time in the countryside and we're looking forward to it so much.

mark of love by shashank4567

mark of love

Yes, I agree with the others. The crop is too tight, so the building doesn't have any scale or position in its environment. The temptation is always to shoot square on to the building, but, unless there's a foreground lead in such as the one you get from within the complex, there is no apparent depth. You seem to have a white balance problem. I know that the Taj Mahal isn't white, but is a wonderful set of pale colours. I took a shot form the gardens across the Jamuna and you can see it here. Have a look at that and see how it differs.

The Grand Gallery by 213hardy

The Grand Gallery

A fine shot of what was, in its day, cutting edge engineering. The airiness of the structure belies the underlying strength.
As far as processing is concerned, for me it's spot on. You have captured detail throughout with shadows and highlights handled extremely well.

Snow Born Sorrow.. by BURNBLUE

Snow Born Sorrow..

A fine shot with a definite "Ah!" factor. Fascinating to think of nomadic people still living so remote from what we take for granted in the westernised world.

Spitfire at Duxford by TT999

Spitfire at Duxford

A fine shot, but I would be tempted to take the F-15(?) out. It's not distinct enough to contrast with the prop driven aircraft, so it has become a bit of a distraction.
