thanks mobike, It is noisy,but in low light conditions, the only way to bring out some colour is to accept come noise. what i hope someone can do for me is to tell me how that can be changed.

Xehausts version of my pic was nice. it was noisier than the original, but it had great contrast and saturation. I generally prefer my pics looking like that.

samurai's version was much clearer than both mine and xehaust's but it lacked the saturation that I was looking for, but quite a few people prefer samurai's style of post processing.

@brraj- the first pic should be possible with a normal cam, i think. its a matter of getting the perpective right.

the second pic could be done with a 360 degree angle lens. I've seen a video cam like that on Discovery.

@rippergeo: Its in Maharashtra, more info here:
Lonar crater - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia


@brraj: Seeing the extreme distortion it must be from a fish-eye lens. Infact I have seen the 2nd picture somewhere before. Not able to recollect where.

There are so many colors and I wanted to capture all of them. Tough HDR has helped me capture many more than what i could have got in a normal pic.

umm guys that pic is not from fisheye lens of 360 degree lens. Its using Post processing.
The technique is called creating mini planets from circular panaromas.
They are created by stiching multiple images

Something from my side after a long time. I wish i had a pet ant/ honeybee/ wasp to keep on that to make it a lively one.

@IMP - lovely pics !!
@tsk - man that stars pic is nice.
@guyonblackybx - peacock feather - super shot !
@N_C - those are really good pics of the parrot in post# 2749. Parrot being a curious bird by nature, looks really good in the first pic.

thanks bblost. brilliant travelogue.

here is my first attempt at HDR.

the 1st pic is the result of applying photomatix's HDR technique on 3 images. the 2nd is the 1st of the series of 3(lowest exposure), that I placed here to show what a massive difference HDR makes in landscape photos. the other 2 images in that series also look very similar to the 2nd pic, and you actually wonder if you will ever be able to make anything good out the 3 huge files you've saved on your memory card.

but the end result, IMO, is totally worth it.
If any of the experts could help me out with the tone mapping , i'm sure my pics could look better.

Default Rippergeo - Good pictures but dullness prevails

Hey Rippergeo,
I think you take good pictures but for some reason, they come out dull.
You are right that your pictures can look better, much better in fact.

Here are your above two pictures. I have attached two versions of the second picture.
Let me know how you like them.

I particularly loved the 1st picture with a hint of clear blue sky under the clouds and surrounding the trees.
