Sri,

Assuming the actual Nandi Hills road is to the right, straight at that junction and then a left at the next (and only) T-junction; this leads to D'pur. I discovered this backdrop about 20 kms before D'pur on that route.

I can show the exact location next Sunday

Dear Mahesh,
Super pictures. I loved the first picture, specifically those clouds and their reflection on the hood of your swift. Brilliant!
I am learning to take pictures in my DSLR. So, a super stupid question MAG, are those clouds straight from the camera or was it after some post-processing?
Cheers,
Deepak

Thanks.

Straight from camera. I use post-processing to "polish" the RAW images (pun!) mildly, but am an opponent of digital rendering. I like to think that composition of a shot while shooting is pure photography.

Meanwhile, the last of that set.

Even if you process the hell out of your pic, how will the composition change my friend?
Digital Rendering is what you are presenting from the time u capture using a sensor, so what exactly are you talking about here?

I forget that we have professional photographers here! Irrespective of terminology, what I intended as a personal distaste is "creating" a picture without having actually taken it, by pasting-arranging pieces in software. The end result might be fantastic, and great credit to the creator, but it wont technically be a "photograph" from a camera.

Of course, its artistic freedom for a photographer to post-process a photograph he has taken in any way he deems worthy!

Aaah, now i get it. Waht you are talking about is compositing ( which in itself is another art, hollywood thrives on it )
And yes altering what you shoot in post is not what photography is all about.

In other words, post processing does not only mean compositing. When someone say 'I don't like to process my pictures to lose originality', they often think that post processing is mainly compositing. Fact is that there is a lot of things you can do in PP without any compositing.

As TG, said, when the image processor chip in the camera makes the jpeg from the RAW image information from the sensor, it is already processed.

TG: Is that a casual shot or a planned one? What's that thing below the bumper to the extreme left?

Till the time there is a popular belief that anything and everything can be done on a computer, good photographers will always be looked as a computer wizkid. People still feel proud to say "absolutly orignial, right out of the camera no touchups", i know this has been said many times over. For instance i and clever own similarly capable camera, both have gone for photowalk to a beach, and both shot the same sunset, same metering, same mode almost identical eif, but mine is not even half as spectacular as his. I hope people get rid of the belif of things can be made to look good on a PC if they are not already good looking.

That's it Maggie! When Rudra comes back from mountains, he is going to make you do thousand push-ups in the support section for your ignorance.

Relax guys, maggie knows the difference between raw and jpg. He has moved from "N73 is the best camera" to "Shooting raw in dSLR" in 4 years. He is saying he doesn't like to alter the photograph beyond a point.
