avi and mukul thanks dude's. Feels good to come back after a long lull with the camera. BTW mukul whats the fetish with the black and whites ? Methinks your non desaturated images has a lot of colors and charm.

Riju, one day I like to see these last set of images on my monitor. Something is bothering me and I need to get to the bottom of it.

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.
I notice that all your portraits have a major flat light issue. Try to get some shadows in to accentuate the contours of the face...try side on light...this will give the face depth and dimention...and more interesting to look at!

@Riju
I love black and white...in black and white, the composition has to be that much stronger ans thats what draws me towards it!

TG, you are very right. In fact I realized it now when I looked at my image again.

I have a question though - many a times you can see pros shooting portraits and all, they light up the face from both directions in order to have a uniform lighting and in that case, the contours of the face are actually not so pronounced. Why is so?

This one surely has some scope for artistic PP. I like it

Much better than the older one. There is no distraction in the shot. The angle rocks, and B&W conversion is also excellent!

Tanveer: great shots, how do you meter these? Mind sharing the exif of the first one, like the aperture ISO and all?

Hi Clevermax, Its hit and trial. If there is some moonlight usually 800-900s is enough, otherwise you need to hit 1500s range.
All the above shots were at ISO 200 with F4.5
Exposure duration is already listed.
I use wider aperture so that the stars come out bright.
Since stars are moving, if I use F8 or something, even with very long exposure, the trails will be less bright.

@wmanu: The Rain Theme ended long time back. The current theme is Festival.

However, the pictures are nice. Post details as well like Camera, lens and Exif info.
