No cropping done here !
Wow! so many new shots are coming in .

Shaju i wanted to ask you something. I've noticed a change in color compositions in your snaps (in this case bright green), is it natural or something to do with the final editing?

Here is where i find a necessity of a Pro cam with a Macro kit. I tried getting even closer but most of the time subject will not get right focus. Please find a try on larger flower.

I am learning the basic editing infact, so please dont think some excess colours are intentional ! Previous bug, green is actually very prominent in the original, with the editing it became bright and vivid. Notice the same bug in another flower ! No cropping here too. It was very tough to shoot this guy, the moment you get your manual focus, its gone !

Recent trip to Halong Bay in Vietnam. There are thousands of such hills around which you can go boating and kayaking. Widely visited and quite scenic.

Another 300mm product. This guy is only 1.5 inches maximum ! But I can swear, he was looking at me because my whole body was on the floor.

Hmm, nice. But yes, you still have to try harder .

I love this even though the background is busy. Somehow the yellow and green make a nice combo.

Nice! I admire landscape shots in B&W. Ansel adams influence, perhaps.

Nice one again Shaju, but the colors seem a bit off. I think you might want to check if your color space is Adobe RGB and the photoshop's color space is sRGB. I think that's the main cause for this shift in colors. Also, if you don't mind could you please send me the RAW file for this one? I want to give the editing a shot and see. Thanks in advance.

Thanks HW, but RAW was used only for the landscapes that involved sky. I will check the sRGB part. Look at this baby, he was so hungry, couldnt even bother even if the whole sky came down. Lovely vegetarian breakfast !!

That's funny, I have couple more shots of the grass plant. Enough purple fringing to last a lifetime... I have posted it in full-size so that you see purple fringing in unusually sharp focus.

Haha, you must have maxed out the zoom on your lens to get the artistic purple fringing. BTW, Samurai, I am contemplating buying the PEN camera for street work. I have been doing some "research" on olympus system and damn, the lenses are wonderful and light. With a 2x crop factor, they are very very tempting for street and bird photographers. Anyways, more on that later.

So, my contribution after a long time. I haven't shot anything new, but did get time to edit some old ones. All of them were shot with my most favorite lens, the nifty fifty. Presenting them here:
