adc,

Wishing you the very best.

I have saved your photograph. In spite of jpeg compression it is awesome when seen enlarged, each grain of sand in the fore ground to infinity is crystal clear, amazing depth of field.
In regards to the quality of the photograph, thats the last thing you need to worry.

Can you share the exif and the camera/ lens used?

Regards,

The above two are the surprising factors.
I thought it was a L series or ED lens, the Tokina copy that you own is a sharp one.
Assumed the aperture to be between f/14-f/18.

The lens is very sharp from F/8 onwards itself and the sweet spot lies around that region F8 to F11.

Here with early morning overcast condition, F8 and above was not possible due to the limitation of Canon 450D with low light capabilities.

I had taken this pic sometime back and uploaded it in the "Non-Auto Image Thread". Since then Somehow I have managed to delete the original and only the uploaded copy is left with me.

Honest opinion; Do you guys think its worthwhile submiting this pic? Does it tell any story? What about the picture quality, is it any good?

I think if I submit this, this will go in the PEOPLE category

Opinions please!!!

Edit: I am hopeless at post processing!!!

Boss, This is an awesome picture, especially the colour of the flame comes out very well.

To me the story will: The power of hunger overpowers the destructiveness of Fire. You can write a story about the various "Tamasha's" that nomadic tribes of Rajasthan do to entertain tourists to earn their daily bread!

Hey ADC, Sorry for going off-topic on this thread, but just a quick question, did you write a travelogue on your trip to Changthang yet? I was not able to find it in "threads started by you". Would really love to read your experiences of Changthang, specially on how you managed to get the permit to go beyond Dungti towards Koyoul !! Can us mere mortals ever think of going beyond Dungti ? I was asked to turned back when i reached there earlier this year :(. Of course i did not have the permit and had gone in wrong direction, so they had to turn me back at the post.

Nice contest.

However, looking at the pictures that Fazal posted in first post as the competition that new entrants are against it looks like a real tough contest and only professionals stand a good chance.

Not yet, just some more days before I post.

Just simply going and asking for it and requesting to meet the Addl. District Magistrate, who most graciously gave the permit after a 15-second clarification about why I want to go there. I too have no contacts for all the extra journeys, whether be it in Ladakh or Arunachal. October is way off season - everyone is much more relaxed, no tourists,and in fact the permit gentlemen were most helpful in that the first day they themselves filled up our forms.
