Stood at the end of this protrusion about 15-20 ft above the water below taking pics (for someone who’s NOT happy with heights – that’s an achievement)

HDR using 3 combined images in Photomatix and then moved into CS3 for more fooling around to keep the birds static (by the third shot, they were out of the frame).

Shot at a lake on the outskirts of Bangalore, India

Nikon D80
Sigma 10-20mm at 10mm

    Absolutely superb, Vikram. All the elements are perfectly placed. The clouds in both the reflection and the sky lead the eye, and the flock of birds and the vegetation stop the eye from wandering outside the frame, and then back it goes to the subject. The lighting and colours are the icing on the cake. A favourite.

  • Thank you for the most fantastic compliment Samuel!
    I love it when someone tells me what they like about a pic of mine. It provides me with the most amazing feedback!

    Stunning work buddy, love the pov and colours and comp and kudos for being brave ;))

  • Thanks Simone!! Finally found there are sunrises (and I’m fairly certain – sunsets) that are worth capturing around the city!

    Ohhhh, I so love this Vikram! The colour, the composition, the birds! Good for you for pushing yourself to get over some personal fears… paid off buddy :)

  • :-) – I find with my eye to the viewfinder, I pretty much forget anything else around me (which isn’t always a good thing as I’ve found in the past LOL!!)
