That's quite interesting. If you don't mind , can you please share how you managed to reverse the lens. I heard that canon EOS reverse rings are costly.Where did you manage to source one? What brand is it? Please share.

Thanks TSEA.

@DeeTee,
As given in my previous post, it was a DIY with an old body cap and an UV Filter. I cut-out the middle section of the body cap and mated the UV filter to it with super glue.

Thanks for liking the pictures Rocky an TSEA.

Rocky,

All pictures are good. The second drop would have been awesome if the drop was not cut on the top. You can give that a try again. My favorite is the paint brush, for it kinda communicates. The diagonal lines (brush hair) and the colors just make it interesting on what the artist would be painting.

Another one from me, love the details in this picture. But wish the highlights had not blown a little on the left side.

TG,

Very nice colors. My eyes are hunting for some brightness on the land (foreground if I may say).

TG, You guys were discussed a lot among us Hyderabad T-BHPians during our last meet! "If I ever owned a Photography mag, I would never let these guys go away!" - This was said by one of us!
We amatuer DSLR owners have a lot more to learn from you folks!

@Hellwrath
that image is not exposure blended...its straight off the camera. And actually, if you try taking a shot in the evening with the exposure settings set to capture the various cloud colors, you will get a dark foreground. Exposure blending all shots spoils the fun

@pulsar
Just inform when the photography mag is kicking off

I was really amazed by this. One humming bird feeding the other with nectar gathered a while back. The 70-200 was used for clicking these.
