Thanks.
I usually take a diversion for additional 10-15 kms to otherwise a straight drive to Palakkad town from home, only to capture similar moments.

Anderson's (e)books are available online for free, just Google. Or buy the hard copies from Flipkart or Amazon India.
I haven't had much chance to shoot recently, been revisiting and reprocessing old shots. Here are a couple...
Last kiss from the setting sun. Selective B&W processing.
Wild boars on a misty morning. Shot during a canoe safari in the Satpuras.
Patience and luck are so important for wildlife shooters ..........
Nilanjanji, your cropped closeup of the crow pheasant is the real-world thing - mine looks like a dressed-up tart in comparison!
And the 'last kiss of the setting sun'.......whatever magic you have used, the result is ethereal, spellbinding.
I am normally a complacent, thick-skinned bloke - but captures like yours & M35's brings out the green-eyed monster!

Thanks for the kind words.

The 'last kiss' shot - a friend liked it, wanted a print, but I have deleted the processed full resolution TIF file.

Here is what happened: I was experimenting late at night. After exporting the final - low resolution - JPEGs (larger version here: https://500px.com/photo/157582823/la...ser_id=2185621), I started work on another photo. That didn't come out well, and I was too sleepy by then. So in a bad mood I deleted all the TIFs before shutting down the machine.

Will have to reprocess again. Lol and damn.

A shot from Ladakh, taken after/around sunset.

Beautiful! I still have not started fully exploring the power of 7D with the macro. But yes have become familiar with the usage. Still a long way to go.

Not sure if I had posted this before. Here is one with 550D and 100mm.

Did you use any filter to get that softness/effect or did it at post ?

A gossip session !

3 Image Focus stacked. Effect added in post ( A slight touch).

I just feel sad that am not able to take the 7D out on to field. Cant wait to get it out.

Superb shots all over from your side. As I said, the vivid colour and expressions just show. Nice!

Default Swallows, Masinagudi

These mouth to mouth encounters would last for 1/10s - 1/5s.

Amazing shot! You guys have gone to the next level. A real testament to the hard work you and M35 have put in.
