Ishaan and maggie thankoo. Ishaan its been long and we need to catch up sometime over the phone during our booze sessions .

surajs done mate. I realized that when I was shooting and cleaning the sensor was the 1st thing I did when I got home.

dadu distance and route taken has been posted at the end. Breakfast was at a hotel called Mayur/Mayura International once you deviate from Hosur road.

Nice report Riju, but I am shocked at the photographs. It is well below your usual standards. Most are over-exposed, over-saturated or over-sharpened. And that's nothing to do with dusty sensor thing. It is like somebody else was shooting. What did you do to Photographer Riju??

Samurai most of the editing was done on my laptop and I still cant get them right. The LCD has been changed and I really cant seem to get the PP done right on this.

I have really gotten lazy and don't fancy the idea of using my desktop to do all this .

Lets see next trip I will force myself to use the desktop for editing and see how it comes thru.

Hey Riju,
Nice travelogue and some good pictures also. But I guess you've forgotten to get something very important called Tripod, isn't it so ? Or may be there was not option to put it down.
Writeup is nice and I also would love to visit Hoggenekkal sometimes but I prefer to avoid such crowded places, be it hogenekkal or Sivasamudram. Although they are lovely places but the crowd turns me off.
Just a few questions, is there a timing involved like open from morning XX to evening YY ?? I want to know if it is possible to be there early in the morning before sunrise,shoot and then push off once the crowd starts to move in ? How safe is the place ? If anyone else also have some ideas please do let me know.
Regards,
Kaushik

Nice to see your travelogue after long time with as usual good photographs. Not a professional like Samurai, so in hunger one does not look for taste

Been there once. As Riju pointed out it was fully crowded & lots of guys floating trying out all things to top up their blast

Good questions there Kaushik_s. If everything is perfect an early morning trip to this place ( - crowd) would be a heaven.

Boss, I am not a professional. I was pointing out that it is well below Riju's standards, he explained why it happened.

To see both the aces in work, lets organize a photoshoot involving Samurai - when you next come to BLR, and Rijuve; we'll use my car as the subject.

Nope the swift will not be a good subject. The lancer is a better choice.

Riju, I echo Samurai's views about the photographs you've posted this time. But wondering if the change in the LCD would affect editing so much.

May be you should just slip them in ..

But, you see, the end justifies the means in this case, namely Rijuanna's photography. And my keyboard lasts longer.

Sure, come over during overcast weather. Your car color needs dull weather to shoot.

I have the same colour Alto as well. Alto is also a good subject in wine red.

Wonderful thread and pictures. Interesting that Rudra hasn't posted on this for I believe he loves the sunset of Hoganekkel. Anyway, it doesn't take away the credit from the artist.
