A random picture taken in the Fryent Country Park in the NW London. The view had a very close resemblance with the stock Win XP desktop wallpaper that I had in my computer a few years ago. The picture hasnt come all that well that I had thought to but nevertheless.


Pic captured using the Nexus 6P mobile camera.

Dusk. Somewhere in the Kumaon Himalayas. Posting on this thread, since IMO this is more of a landscape than an automobile photo.

Great photos Sree, really warms the cockles inside! I have been a devotee of the Kumaon region over the years, but as Nilanjan Ray has pointed out, Kerala too has great potential to be God's own country! Lovely captures - always makes me wish I was more competent as a shutterbug.

Sorry to say, whether you took these with some mobile phone or with some other camera, the photos would could have been significantly improved. It is just laziness to shoot from the standard standing angle, using some auto mode. Mediocre photos do nothing to make this forum more interesting.

Same shots - take them sitting or lying down on the ground, to get a more interesting composition. If you are shooting fire during daytime, try underexposing.

One can think of better composition with even a mobile phone.

Edit: re the 1st photo:

1. Why from that angle? Seems you were standing, and bent down a little. It gives a 2D feel. If you had shot it bent down more, it would have a 3d and more realistic feel of the bananas. Maybe get very close, so 1-2 bananas are in focus, while the rest are blurred.
2, The white thing on the top left, the concrete on the right - what are they supposed to convey?

Instead of taking random snapshots, think about what you are trying to convey through each photo. All of us can and should get better, but one needs to put in some effort.

Thanks. Although looking back at it after a few days, it seems to be over processed. I had taken this shot from my iphone, used iphone's image enhancement, loaded it to flickr, used Avary's HD enhancement, and then downloaded it back to desktop and then uploaded here. Phew.
