Thanks, Eric. That is exactly what made me snap the photo. I used my point and shoot Panasonic DMC-ZS7 and did not alter the photo in any way. Had I put more thought into the shot, as I literally just held up my camera and snapped the photo, I would have tried to cut out the upper left of the picture that shows the skylighted ceiling so that only the vegetables would have been seen.

That's a beautiful photo Ravi! I really like the water drops on the petals. The color is amazing too!! Do you use any 'developing' software? Or did you happen to have perfect lighting for that shot? Smile

Thanks Luke.
I did not alter the photo significantly post-capture, apart from adjusting the contrast and hues a little bit. I think I got lucky in terms of lighting ... the photo was taken first thing in the morning on a sunny day.

Nice! Yeah I really like it. The subject is in focus, it has great depth of field, it follows the rule I thirds great, there is nothing awkwardly placed (like poles coming out of people's heads...you know what I mean Wink ). It's a really good photo! That being said, I guess it's obvious that I am partial to nature shots. Smile

Thanks! I took a ton of photos and that one was the best. I can only imagine what my neighbours were thinking as they saw me belly down in the dirt with a camera. Lol!

Here's my first successful night shot. I took it last year about 45 min out of the city (that's how long it took to get away from the "noise" the city lights was creating on other shots).

13s; ISO 4000; 18mm ; f9.0; and focus set to infinity (or the closest to it as my lens doesn't have a marker for it)

These are few shots I've taken while out and about on my travels, the first photo is a Kurdish mother & child begging on the streets of Paris, the next lot are some character studies of people who I got to know who choose to live on the outside of normal society as we know it.
