I am a beginner in photography...

And frankly speaking, i dont have any photographic equipment to boast of... Anyways... Here's a pic taken using a regular cam... The place was real beautiful...

For all those who like the pic (if anyone does .... Welcome to kerala)

Boasting won't really help if one doesn't know how to shoot. A good photographer can take great photos even with ordinary camera. People use more expensive/advanced cameras for higher degree of control, expensive camera doesn't ensure better photographs.

In the photo, the horizon is burnt completely. If you shoot in auto, try setting EV to negative (say -1) in bright sunlight. That way you won't lose all the details in the brighter areas. The composition is good, with the rocky road leading the eye. You can remove the green, it would look like this

WOW... Nice...

The first photo was taken by me, in my old kodak camera... When my father bought it two years back, it was just Rs. 700+ something... There is nothing in it to adjust... Only two buttons are for shutter on- off, and film rewind... :(

The second one is from my friends Sony Cybershot 6MP camera... It has loads of buttons... But, i have no idea what all those are for...

This was shot by me using Canon EOS 1Ds Mark II and 20mm lens, later post-processed by the owner of the camera.

Just cropped. What do you mean shot in panaroma, there aren't such camera sensors, is there?

Well, dSLRs don't have such fancy stuff, they can't even take videos or show the preview on LCD before shooting. Here it was shot in wide angle and then the top and bottom is cropped to the same effect.

some times it just pi***s you off because you dont have the preview choice,but yes I can delete and re-shoot unlike the film camera's .
BTW that simply was an awesome shot Samurai.

Thanks. But like most traditional shooters, I always prefer and use the optical viewfinder. The DOF preview is a useful feature too.

You don't need anything called "panorama support".
Just take a few shots by panning either up down or sideways or both and you can stitch. All the panorama mode does is do fancy naming the pics as _a etc., and guide you on the screen on which direction to move the camera.
I have created panorama's with my DSLR by stitching multiple shots.
