Here, posting a pic where my luck was with me.

This rock pigeon was sitting nicely. I clicked to get the pic and it flew off the place, and I could captured the very moment in my camera . It is not as sharp as I would have liked, but I love the moment.

Ha ha... Its just the same mood shown!

I processed a b/w of her picture. Used the channel mixer in PS rather than blindly cutting off the saturation.

@Hellwrath
Haha, its just that I am not traveling much now, so havent landscaped much, or clicked wildlife much...So going for portraits. Its a phase i guess

@D-man
Thanks. Glad you are enjoying them.

@Shajufx
Thanks buddy. Glad to know your brain is being tickled. Beautiful baby

@Gandhi
What is the exif on that pigeon picture, its pretty nice.

@clever max
Nice, a little more increase in blacks, and a subdue if highlights mightmake the image pop. But i guess, the light was quite harsh there right?

2 images of my nieces, I love the innocence and love seen in the eyes of children, an attempt to capture that very feel. No Ps wprk at all, just color to black and white conversion in the Adobe RAW editor that comes with CS4.

I didn't get your question. If you are referring to the Manhattan panorama, it was taken from the ferry from Liberty Island to Manhattan.

good for us, I was getting bored (more like jealous) of all the car pics you were posting.

some nice portraits there. But I would like to see some colors. The magic thru B&W is too trivial.

Yes you're right. Actually I did likewise and the image looks better. B/w processing involves some effort!

Here's another one. Would like to hear everyone's critique...

Here's another one. Don't ask me what kind of a composition I originally intended to get when I shot this!

Haha, well i dont really enjoy color shots when it comes to portraits with emotion..black and white lets you look into the person not at him/her...but heres one that was done for a friend's modeling portfolio, the mood is different, the context is differentand hence the color output.

What do you mean my "magic thru black and white is too trivial"? I think black and white is 100 times more powerful than color.

Nice, a slight increase in fill light will brink out detail from the super black areas. I feel you cropped too close, there isnt much continuity in the frame. Looka a little broken. Nevertheless beautiful family u got

TG.

Hey TG,
Awesome shots from you. But I feel the wooden fence is distracting in the last shot.
