Last time I visited Munaar was in the rainy season. This photo was taken through the windshield of the car we were traveling. Though continuous lashing rain played spoil sport, rain and descending mist gave the place a magical and romantic feel.
This one is from the first portfolio assignment I undertook.
This photo is inspired by a laptop wallpaper which also goes with the same title.
This is a HDR image made out of a single raw file using the popular HDR software, Photomatix. Photomatix is a paid software, but it has an unlimited time trial version which will leave a watermark on the images made out of it – like the image above. If you do not want the watermark, you need to buy the software, or if you are smart, you can remove the watermark by cloning it off using other softwares. I could have easily removed the watermark here, but decided to keep it on.

I like this pic a lot, but don’t know why!!
This photo was taken at a family outing last August in Kanthaloor near Marayoor in Kerala, India . It had started to drizzle so the kids ran for cover before the clouds came down.
Kanthaloor is an amazing place to visit. To know more about kanthaloor, click here: http://www.marayoortourism.com/pages/4around.htm
On a rainy day I saw this leaf sticking onto my window.

First time, after buying a camera, I got a chance to click at a wedding ceremony. This was my friend’s wedding. I was like an unofficial photographer but I had only one lens that too the Ultra-Wide Angle Tokina AT-X 116 PRO DX-II 11-16mm f/2.8.
Though I didn’t like the idea of shooting a wedding moment with a wide-angle, it really helped. As I’m not a pro, I cannot steal the place of a pro photographer standing in a prime spot to shoot the occasion, so I had to stay behind the front-line. But this worked to take a pic of the entire scene, not just the bride and groom, but also include the relatives and the camera men into the frame.
This pic was taken at Marthahalli bridge, bangalore at about 5 pm on a Monsoon evening using my Sony Ericsson J20i mobile camera. My 5mp mobile camera used to work well initially but soon it lost its clarity and speed. This one is from its hay days.
In some seasons, the sun used to set straight opposite my window. This is taken on one such glorious sun set day. The Flickr lighbox image is much better than the one here. To view my Flickr image, click here.
Here’s a link which can teach you how to make a good smoke photograph.
The only processing work I have done with this photo is cropping and invert colors. But with Photoshop you can do a lot of creative things – go check out the above link.
This is taken using my wide angle lens, Tokina AF 11-16mm f/2.8 AT-X Pro DX. This Tokina works best at 11mm.
Location: Nadukani, near Thodupuzha and Iduki in Iduki Dt in Kerala, India. This is the gateway to a view point from where, on a clear day, you can see the Muvattupuzha River, Moolamattom town, Malankara Reservoir and picturesque mountains touching the sky. On a misty day, you will be presented photos like the one I have here.

Wide angle photo using Tokina AF 11-16mm f/2.8 AT-X Pro DX. The wide-angle distortion is clearly visible here, but not bad. I like simple compositions like this.
Barbeque Nation bar counter in the Ascendas Park Square Mall in ITPL, Bangalore. I like photographing bar counters, the warm lighting and the beauty of those bottles arranged in order in the wooden shelfs make it worth turning your camera on them.
This is taken in my home town. Though the kid in the middle is smiling straight into the camera, she wasn’t posing for the shot.
