@Hw, nice shots and good play with the light. The white umbrella is clearly visible in the sunglasses in the third shot Who are these? Bhpians?

Clevermax,

Thank you. Ye, I didn't want to clone the umbrella out. That lighting style is called "Rembrandt" (after the famous painter, evident due to the triangle under the eye) and wanted to leave the umbrella as it is for anyone looking at it to figure out the approximate location of the umbrella to get that outcome. I am not sure if these guys are part of team-bhp but they are from a local photography club called bangalore photography club. We have many BHPians who are members of BPC as well .

BTW, that's an awesome shot and you said the PP was minimal (refering to your daugher's photograph). The skin texture has come out reallly well . Well done!

yzfrj: TG and clevermax have already told you about the advantages of PP and why it is required. Coming to the canon part, I kinda knew looking at the picture that it was a canon. I have done similar shots you see . The thing is, you need to dial in an EV of -1/3 to -2/3 if you are using canon as it tends to overexpose at 0EV, which is visible in the water droplets. Also, switch to the mode where the overexposed parts of an image will blink when you preview them on your camera's lcd.
Yup it does blink and I got to know from the manual its because that "area" is overexposed never understood how to correct it . Now I do.

BTW I like the yellow building.
Hand-held or tripod ?

Well, it was kept on one of the poles opposite the building. And yes, the lens used was the dreaded 18-55 (non IS) kit lens .

The first picture is a neat one. The second picture has no specialty and could be improved - try shooting it with a seamless background, a black paper bent over the wall and light only the subject...

and here's someone in a colorful world!

@Clever : I frankly dont like the composition of the potrait.
Just my opinion.
IMO it could have been composed better.
Sorry if I hurt your feelings on that note.

One from me.
From a camera phone... a friend.

@clevermax
Brilliant shot, lovely color and very unusual! I loved it. Not a big fan of the PPed version though.

Thanks for your critique preetam & no feelings hurt! I am open for any comment/critique and only through them one can improve.

@TG: Thanks man! glad that you liked the shot! I just PPed to produce that dull version hoping that it would look better than the color one, but I was wrong.

You seem to be in a b/w trip! keep 'em coming!

Camera was shaken badly and it produced fish and alpha shapes

Many P&S cameras of today allow you to adjust the shutter speed. Check if your camera has this feature.
