Ajay, its coming out well. Curious to know which PP software you are using.

Here is one from my morning shoot. If I show you the original file, you can count every scale on its body. Its through the 300mm lens, I was closely looking through the viewfinder for it to turn the head, that waiting was almost a minute, then I got its eyes towards me.... suddenly someone walked behind me (the regular walkers in the park), I literally jumped out of fear. I really thought a huge version of the chameleon is behind me !!!!! (its not a joke, but real !)

Sorry for the huge boarders, somehow it has become broader by default, need to spend time and resize the boarders again.

The huge chameleon (huge boarder) is now boarding at your house? Sorry couldn't resist... Let's settle for borders next time.

A stupid query may be, is there any easy way to insert a watermark ? I read about PS way of creating action but something simpler which inserts info in the exif as well ?

When exporting from Picasa, you can set the text watermark. That's the simplest.

Exif data can be manipulated even with normal file properties dialog of windows explorer. Another way to do that is to use PS itself which allows access to a lot more data that windows explorer doesn't show.

Setting a text watermark in PS is easy - just use the text tool and set transparency for that layer to your liking. You can get a little creative with the layer blending options too.

Nice shot shaju.
Just a feedback - pictures will look a lot better if you get rid of those black and white borders that you always use... just MO

Shaju, thanks for the comment. I still think I have to understand how to do PP properly. Will take some time for it once I'm back from vacation, to learn from the web.

Currently, I just manage between Irfanview and Photoscape, both which I downloaded yesterday. They're both Freeware. I also have Adobe Lightroom 2.5 which I'll try using only in June, after I return from the trip.

Took it in a Dolphin show. There were not enough lights inside, had to use ISO 400.

Thats a nice suggestion, I have some shots with that in focus, but its a totally blurred image, which may not appeal.

Its at 50mm f/2.8. I was trying hard to get atleast the whole plant in full focus, but only a portion was possible. DOF is very shallow.

Tamron 90mm Macro

@Shaju:
How much did you pay for Tamron 90mm Macro? and How do you like it?
I thought of getting one getting one but have been receiving mixed reviews about the performance.
