My Habitat

My Habitat, originally uploaded by Yogendra174.

macro taken with Sigma-APO-DG-Macro 70-300 at 300mm..

It was an interesting struggle to get the flower and the insect both in focus and also avoiding distractions in the frame.. difficult but interesting :)

Dramatic End of the Day

Dramatic End of the Day, originally uploaded by Yogendra174.

Is the noise on the foreground hurting the eye or adding the artistic touch? I could not make out so seeking your opinion!

It was a beautiful sunset over Panhala fort on the weekend after a heavy evening rain! Dark Sky with blue shades, orange horizon and foggy foreground made the scene picture perfect... and i attempted to "recapture" the moment..
18mm shot on my Canon 1000D.. mounted on pocket table tripod .. 4 sec exposure @ f/8.

Honey, originally uploaded by Yogendra174.

Interesting tiny flower with sugary secretion attracting some insects!

Another interesting fact about this shot is that it was taken yesterday night at 10 PM in almost pitch dark. I was holding a small torch on my mouth (to help me painfully focus) and the light is entirely from the diffuser.

Just wanted to prove to myself that the diffuser works even in pitch dark.

Tip: It is VERY painful to focus with Raynox in dark (as if its easy in full day light.. but you know i love to complicate things :D)

Diwali Evening

Diwali Evening, originally uploaded by Yogendra174.

This was on the last day of Diwali. Initially i planned to exclude the telecom pole but then realized the composition is getting interesting with it's inclusion in the frame..

>> What do you guys think? Crop it our or keep it?
