The king of good times came visiting and picked up a few of small fish that my mom has kept in a tank ( actually, an old bath tub ) in the garden.

I wonder how he lost one of the toes on his lift leg.

As i was shooting through the window without disturbing him, the window grill got in my way and distorted the lower part of the image.

whatchya lookin' at, Punk ?

Should start shooting flowers again. I find it easier to use the point and shoot for close ups than the Canon. So I have'nt been shooting flowers like I used to, but there's plenty from my archives
Found these flowers on a hillside in idukki. My wife and her family were standing behind me and whispering derisive comments about the mad son-in-law crawling about on all fours in the rain soaked bushes.

You bet. A camera like g8 is pretty easy to handle taking flower close-ups. They go pretty close to the flowers too, and very good DOF. Yes they do have an edge over slr on this one.

Here is another one from rose garden...

@gkrishn- any tips on how to use the DSLR to get effects similar to a P&S camera(this must sound silly) but most of my DSLR shots of flowers are atrocious.

I find roses very difficult to shoot. Most of the times, the colour gets bad, and the petals all seem fused. Specially so in the case of red and bright coloured ones.

Is auto-focussing the problem? Camera is a canon S5 IS, and i use auto focussing almost always.

auto focussing does a better job than my efforts at manual focussing. the main problem is DOF. cant seem to get that right.

@ASHVIN(with spaces) and crazydriver(with non uniform font)- thanks

I keep trying through the tree shots, but very few of them come out right. actually, only 2 of them have come out right so far, and you've seen both of them.

Beautiful shot. Though the composition isnt quite right IMO. I wonder what it would look like if it was framed a little higher.

Since you mean DOF - P&S cameras' lenses dont allow as much DOF as SLR's, so if you want to emulate P&S type DOF (flatter images), use a smaller aperture (high f. number). Others might be able to provide other tips...

Louis, thats a beautiful shot. Those colours came out very well. Rehaan has a good point here on composition. I also think that you have darkened the pic (increase the shadow) to get that effect.

Anyways, a brilliant capture.

Thanks manoj, yes i darkened the pic. Otherwise it would have looked very ordinary.

@rehaan- the upper part of the trees had thin unruly twigs tangling into a mess. It would have completely disrupted the pattern made by the trunk silhouettes. thanks for the tip on DOF. will try it soon
