Very, very nice. Stunning location. Cultivate this area properly.

For landscape try to use smaller aperture. Foreground is out of depth here.

@Rudra
Alright. Actually it was intentional, the foreground blur.

Doesn't work for landscapes. It'll be seen as your fault.

For landscape photography try to use a tripod. Apart from other benefits it'll help you to be disciplined.

@Rudra
Advice taken with both hands. Heres one more, this time a manual exposure blended shot, ever since you brought the topic up, I have been trying hard to get a hold of this, this pic is something i was working on whenever i could find some time in between my busy class routine.

I have never seen such good monochrome landscape pics. Usually monochrome catches my eye in Portraits. But this is beautiful!

Some more from the zoo..

@TSEA
That orangutan seems to be having some fun eh?

I seem to be having a disorder, i am suffering from Black & White vision syndrome and looks like I contracted it from Rudra.
This one's from my Sony H50 point and shoot.

My first attempt beneath. Taken from our balcony of the trees behind. A blend of two differently exposed shots and some crazy post-processing!
Not quite satisfied with the result but anyways...

cheers
