First of all, get that modern saddle out of there. Next, get some respectable clothing.

Skin tone looks excellent on this one. Natural, no excessive saturation.

So I take it that, in order to get 1/2 stop more light, I have to pay ten thousand dollars? And, for that ten grand I will get jagged blur with outlined highlights? Count me in! Can't I just bump up the ISO? Then I can use the Sigma 50 f1.4, which is sharper and has lovely blur to boot.

Huh? List of equipment? WHO CARES? First three shots are okay, but no more. A slower shutter speed on the first one would've made it a lot better. Taj shot is good, but I wish the foreground had been in focus.

The most important thing to have on location is not gear--it is an advance plan and/or a local guide who really knows the area. Having the proper clothing and medications is a lot more important than what lenses you are carrying.

See http://www.photosbysuzimooremcgregor.com/INDIA.html for some images that actually TAKE you somewhere.
