@tsk
Great shot
@sid
The Taj mahal shoot is very nice, fantastic.
@Riju
Thanks dude!

This click was taken in Nevada, while traveling along the freeway when i saw this strange looking factory, and it instantly reminded me of a hollywood movie, hence the title! Post processed in photoshop.

@TG: Great shot of Bellagio, Terry Benedict would have liked the shot.

@Sreeraj: These are some wonderful captures, I know how much of hard work goes into these shots. I simple don't have the patience to shoot birds.

Really, what do you think about this shot? Can a tele-zoom get this bokeh?
