Here is a very interesting video about portrait shots, how the person behind the camera matters.

Thanks Amp.
Most of the time, it is the blind behind the lens not the gear, IMHO.
Yes, the new Nikkor seem to have found the sweet spot in me that I can concentrate on bettering my skills now.

One from the 'Pelican in action' series, shot in a natural park on a rare day with some light behind.

Can anyone tell me how you compress images to less than 3 MB without destroying the quality?

This has really held me back when I want to post pics on TBHP.

Fantastic images. Loved the blacks on the Darter’s feather. Was it ‘as shot’ or did you enhance it at post?

I usually export my pictures out of Lightroom with the ‘Limit File Size To’ set at 3000k for use in here.

I am still holding on. Leaning on to 7D-II for the moment. But for now its the same old body.

One in Black and White.

Infinity.. The step well at Adalaj; along the Ahmedabad-Gandhinagar highway.

No post processing.... Am not good at that!

Do you mean to say, you add the images in Lightroom (RAW) and then export it to JPEG setting the limit to the file size?

I've never used Photoshop or Lightroom so I'm asking dumb questions! :P

Yes, but after processing a bit to convert NEF/RAW in to JPEG. The images get compressed while being uploaded here I guess, hence looks a bit degraded.

What other software do you use to convert RAW into JPEGs? Or do you shoot JPEG ?
Once again, lovely images.
Please do post a few more.

I shoot RAW because I have the space. And someone told me to shoot RAW so that I can post process it sometime! I've never bothered to learn! I shoot in RAW+JPG. I just dump all the RAW images on an external HDD waiting for the time I learn how to post process! :P

Here are a few more.

No idea which bird this is!

Nice shots. I like the shallow depth of field and the sharpness. What camera and lens were you using?

This picture is taken near Keelkathalai, Chennai. I shot this picture using my Moto X First Generation. This photo has no filter added to it. I just used the phone's standard camera and reduced the ISO and got this effect.
