I am primarily a birder. The K5 has held me in good stead, even in low light. I really look forward to the review covering the sensor of K5IIs being tested in real life (along with studio samples) - covering subjects of interest to wildlife photographers - birds and nature macros to be specific.
Photographing chicks is totally against birding ethics. I am not voting on this.
It sure is pretty and I have this feeling will shoot very well!
:-( noticed this too late!!!
The clothes clip!!!!!! That just had to be in!
RuthC: What a great shot! Congratulations, Arijit on capturing it! There is such an interesting story there. (By the way, what did happen? Surely you didn't just walk away!) Ruth :-)
Thanks Ruth. The Butterfly flew off but was snared by a Bee-eater. From one danger to another... that is nature.
Wo! Thanks to all those who voted.
A lovely image. Totally deserving.
Thanks The MicK
This is indeed a lovely shot! Absolutely deserving. Well done my friend.
Thanks everyone. vgabor- appreciate those encouraging words.
Excellent and deserving entry!
Deserving, to say the least!
Deserving indeed! Congrats.
Greyser: Very good capture with shore line background. Congratulations, Arijit.
Glad you liked it Greyser.
RuthC: I really loved this entry! I've seen this situation before, when the poor dog came off second-best! LOL! Congratulations on a very expressive photo.
That was very kind of you Ruth. Thank you.
Deserving winner! Well done & congrats.
l_objectif: I am sorry, but this kind of themes are only for a very small group of people!... Do I have to buy a ticket to India and be there at night to participate in this challenge?... really!
All said, as on date, getting a half decent night shot of the Taj is very difficult, given the security restrictions and the horrible particulate pollution. However, on a full moon night it does look spectacular, even from afar. The lights on buildings/ streets et around the monument lead to lots of light pollution, thereby spoiling the shot. I think this challenge is a bit restrictive. We do want to see lots of nice images, don't we?
BlackZero: Human are also social animals.. aren't we?
Animals- yes. Social- you sure? ?:-)
This is an amazing shot! Loved it.
