I got lucky when this magnificent peacock decided to climb a dead tree stump in the morning light. I took these pics from quite far off from a Jeep during a Safari at Yala National Park in Sri Lanka.
Heres a shot from a trip i went last weekend. I did post a few shots highlighting the vastness of lake superior before. But what caught my attention in this shot is the sky. Dense clouds, sunrise, a tiny boat and a vast lake… makes one dramatic combination 🙂 Sometimes shots such as these remind me of how tiny we are when compared to elements of nature.
I am often confronted with the question of drawing a line between the amount of post-processing and showcasing an image as I saw it on location. For this one, I hardly did anything, except for a slight bump in brightness and contrast. Just to give you an idea of how much more dramatic the image can be, take a look at this edited version:HERE. I am sure some of you ask the same question to yourself before sharing, where do you draw a line? Do you like processing the shots or do you prefer to share images as shot, straight out of the camera? I would love to hear your opinions in the comments below! 🙂
This is lake superior, again. I shot this at Duluth, MN at around 5AM in the morning, before sunrise. Look straight into the frame and you will find a clear horizon with a hard transition between sky and the lake.
This is a 63 seconds exposure at F9. Please also take a look at the color version of this pic HERE
Shot at Coorg. I’m not sure if this was used for something or just as incense.
Can Man ever be one with nature? Or is nature always in our way of progress?
