Good compo, but PP sucks. If you want to learn how to PP B&W, shout out to Rudra. He is the B&W expert.

THE GREAT BEAR
No matter what time of the year, it always points to the pole star.
but it's position (at a given time) keeps changing over the year. for some months it will rise in the morning and set by the evening. I think that's in winter though. I have observed the movements of stars in india when i was probably 12, I think it was summers (may-june) when great bear was straight up between 8-9 PM.

Yes, its position will keep changing, but the lead 2 stars will always point towards the Pole star.

I meant it will not be visible, it will be under the horizon.

It will rise and set like all other stars, so only when its up, you can use it for pole star

Nice, looks like the sky is flowing into the waterfall. Almost an optical illusion the first instance you look at it.

The waterfall highlights are all too bright. It overshadows the scene, which makes it look cluttered.
I have tried B&W many times, but somehow I can never get the contrast/brightness balance right. Same problem here.
Again Rudra is the expert here. He can tell exactly what to do!

If you want to take up star photography, its very important to learn basic astronomy.
For example, Jupiter is usually much brighter than other stars, how to capture the setting venus etc., etc.,
Mukul, looks more like a glacier...

Here is a pic of my little one, at her visit to the zoo.
I applied Orton effect to the image to suit the mood.

Comments welcome.

Some parts - like the hat, forehead - are blown out
Picture lacks sharpness
You could have improved the composition as well - she seems to be looking at something, it would be better to capture that part also in the image. Or else, if you want her face alone, I would say, zoom in a bit more and make her look into the camera and click...:

Just my thoughts.

Old shot. Tripod/two exposure (to get that red filter effect for B&W)/multi spot. 70-200 at 115mm. f11/200. ISO 100. Hugely cropped. Damn JPEG compression!

Riju, awesome clicks. The first one is superb and looks more like a painting ( especially the mountain area)
