Damn, I have never seen a peacock with all its feathers open like that. And I have hundreds of peacocks near and around my office. I gotta see this someday.

Samurai,

Very common during the monsoon in your region, be on the look out. The first time I saw this was in manipal about 8 years back. Was at a friend's place, sipping tea in his balcony (his home is opposite to the Syndicate Institute of Bank Management) and it was drizzling. Outta nowhere a peacock pops out, and does this dance in the SIBM compound. Have been pestering my friend to sell his home to me ever since that happened.

TG - i love the series of "flags/markers" or whatever they are called going off into the distance, along with the unsettled dust!

Default Some Pics using Canon S3IS (UNTOUCHED)

Posting some pics from my Canon S3IS taken on a gloomy day this week when it was raining all through a fortnight without a respite. These are untouched just off the camera except for reduction in size.

Do let me know how are these

Cheers

@Rehaan
Thanks dude.

I am in love with the 50mm f 1.8 lens! A few shots from it.

@TG: The shots with the 50mm F1.8 are amazingly sharp!

One of my old shots. Taken with a P&S Canon S3IS. PP'ed to give the moon its own unique texture from another image. I like the noise in this pic.

@fountainheader
That second shot, well its heavenly!

@Clevermax
Yeah, it really is a bang for the buck lens! Generally many look upon it as a portrait and creative lens( because of the bokehs it produces) but I think you can push it to other horizons with respectable results!
