Also do enjoy the scenic beauty through both eyes, not just through one eye

Thank you .. and in between which sections/station would these tunnels be? Hopefully I can be prepared and ready by then. I am travelling from Mangy to Mumbai. I think I hit CANCONA @ 5.20am and MADGAON @ 6.20am. I wonder if the sights you mention would be over by then.

Another humble effort from my side. Would be more than happy to get criticisms/ suggestions.

Was shot in colour, but felt that BW did more justice to the the theme. Or is sepia better for such shots?
Also, what works best with sepia? BW with sepia, or colour with sepia?

Thank you.

A trip to the local Zoo - would you believe it they PROHIBITED use of ANY cameras!! .. in a ZOO??

There was this 'park' section where one was permitted to shoot. There was these flock of birds behind a very thick cage - I tried to shoot between them but you can still see the bars. This is with my Sigma 17-70 @ 70mm

I wish I knew photochop a lil!

Thank Samurai, these pictures were really unexpected it just happened in a flash.

I know you would have seen many of these type of sunset at your place regularly as you are on the coastal region

Two more from my side-

Trying to learn BW conversion. Thought simply converting to BW in PS does the trick. However, came across an article on the net, that its not the way to do it. Even more confused now, trying to play with filters in conversion.

Enjoying the warmth of the evening sun- Another one of the same cat (not mine though! ). It was in such a sleepy mood, too lazy to run away, and too cautious of my presence to sleep even.

@CD, amazing shots of the cats. Both are quite nice in its own way. B&W pic is beautiful expression and the color one is full of detail. Great job!!!

Btw, where did you get a chance to click them? Camera details?

@crazy driver- i know I said that black and white is not interesting. I take it back.

the colour photo looks better than the original you'd posted on Flickr. did you PP it further? or is it just my imagination?
very nice pics, I'm going to start stalking the cats around my house.
