Smile 2010 Monsoon Photography thread

Itís already the mid of monsoon timeframe, though the country on the average have received far little rain so far. Nevertheless, itís time for buckling up and head to favorite monsoon spots and also flux the photography muscles, as most other T-BHPans. A monsoon always gives me nostalgia and unfortunately, I will be missing the Godís own country this time, where Monsoons hits first time every year, there is ample of opportunity in and around Pune, where I currently live. This is also the time, when some of the best pictures are clicked, so thought of sharing them here. Feel free to post your monsoon pictures on this thread as well.

Here are some teasers to get started with, a few I clicked at the beginning on June 2010. The rains werent enough, so I had to depend on the clouds
Other pics are in the making, will keep posting them.

Ashish Sir, yes you are right, it is Temghar dam on the way to Lavasa. I was told that it is raining in Lavasa, but there is no water in the dam yet. Waiting for more rains

Thanks Sree and crazydriver. Sree did you forget to sharpen your roses ? Crazydriver, I hope the dragonfly shot was in lowlight. We could find more details if lighting was better. If you found my rose petals soiled or unhealthy (outer petals), here is the reason, a look behind its leaf;97 eggs on a single leaf

@crazydriver: Lovely dragonfly shot!
@punterccrx8s: That's not a macro shot at all! What you mean by macro shot here? You used the macro mode in the DSLR with your kit lens?

Punter, look at the rose leaf with eggs I posted above, thats a macro shot. A single leaf is almost filling the frame and eggs are smaller than a mustard seed in real. You need a dedicated macro lens for such shots.

Low light + on-board flash + old powershot S5.

To add to it, I only have an useable high ISO 100. ISO 200 itself is grainy. Effect of the megapixel race!

Thank you. I'm back in kerala for the weekend. Kerala is an excellent place to learn macro! No offence to anyone, but at our chennai home, all i could find were spiders, flies and lizards. Missed all the dragonflies and butterflies.

Another shot of the same guy. Shot with Canon Powershot S5.
