Condor, Sumo is sitting right there. Thereís no real issue with shadow either.

Those shots are real breathtaking and NO, thereís no competition anywhere.

When shot in RAW format pictures look very flat and dull (most of the time). The RAW format assumes that the image will be processed by a personal computer. Special knowledge is required to get the best out of RAW format. However, bundled software can be used to get the desired effect. But to go ahead with further fine tuning, Photoshop is a must.

Most of Robertís pictures are shot with wide angle lens. As sat mentioned about 24 mm lens, itís horizontal coverage would be around 74 degree and vertical of 53 degree. So to get a panoramic view he has to stitch his shots. I would like to assume that he was using a tripod as stitching is very difficult otherwise.

RAW image is processed according the colour matrix, white balance and processing parameters set at the time of shooting. Surreal effect is purely up to the photographer.

Overall light quality is way different from what we see in plains. Colours, shapes and tones come out really crisp. How to finally present those is up to the photographer. Going by what Iím seeing here looks like a temporary job. If these pictures are finally for a book then they need to go through lot more corrections.

Thereís no tampering here. It is photographerís representation of a place. Nothing to verify here.

Rudra,

It is a temporary job which he does on a laptop. He is not really familiar with photoshop, perhaps need to spend some time with rudra...

I will be posting some more photos of his shortly.

Yup! You are very high so there is less atmosphere, less air. Also, the area is desert and semi-desert so there is very little of that Indian plains humidity, water vapor, in the air. Everything is crisp and clear. Colors of objects sometimes seem almost lit from within. The sky can be a deep cobalt blue because there is less stuff between you and outer space. Here are a couple of pictures taken in July 2007 standing almost in the same place as susan3004 in post #26. Different day, different camera, a 5 megapixal Nikon pop gun.

Some nights up there the sky is ablaze with a million stars and the milky way and they seems so close you could reach out and touch them.

Iam sure it would be a good alternative to now the only offering, Bolero 4wd in MUV category. (Gypsy & Gurkha not included due to delivery constraints)

please paste more pics of SUMO 4x4 in action
hi vinod, The 207 4X4 is available in the market by the name TL 4X4 OR Telcoline 4X4.
We build Campervans on them. Visit Overlanders

Some states like Himachal Pradesh do not allow sale of them. I do not know why. Tata is soon to introduce the Xenon, a new pickup built on the Sumo Grande platform. The double cab version is to be available with 4wd. There are numerous posts on it at this site.

Rightly said! We live so down south and up there we feel like its a completely new planet! Imagine how our brave soliders are bearing this weather and conditions to protect us! Its everyday job in a soldier's office! and especially the BRO engineers and Army engineers who laid these roads in the first place! What can be said about them? Magnificient? Awesome? Brave? Patriots? I just have no words for them and their feat. I am seriously jealous of the Men in uniform in TBHP and sons of soldiers who have visited these places. It always gives a special pride and pleasure to travel in a olive green gypsy or a olive green stallion/tata.
