Yeah, the butterflies are hard to get, and the first one was just taking off as i was clicking the pic. Soon enough the mass of people behind me meant that not a single butterfly was sitting down idle.

Regarding framing, can you elaborate taking the worst offender according to you ?
I should be able to re-frame pretty much all of them except a couple of the butterflies - I was using a 18-55, so most of those pics are cropped manually... which also explains the rather poor IQ.

Thanks everyone. :)
After following this thread for a while, I think little constructive criticism won't hurt.
This are old ones, since my camera is out of service and I have switched to cell temporarily.
Both the photographs are nice.
I like the black and white more. I guess the monochrome variant and PP makes it look good. Good work there :thumbs:

[MENTION=125321]nac[/MENTION] nice shot..but didnt you get the red moon...that I saw in newspapers
[MENTION=221001]Pranav[/MENTION] 1st is OOF and focus seems to be on flower
2nd you cut one of the part of butterfly and butterfly dont look nice without a habitat...a macro pic of butterfly is of no use...butterfly will look really good with green natural BG
parrot is really beautiful in color but its face is opposite side...
[MENTION=285113]sidharth[/MENTION] 1st one is good...

[MENTION=39722]sujoyp[/MENTION] [MENTION=125321]nac[/MENTION] Thanks, I think monochromes help in two things; highlighting the subject and hiding imperfections.

Here are more; (And this will effectively end the contribution from my NEX-6 on this thread, I will be making a switch to Olympus soon)

Quite interestingly edited pics :)

I'll post the original shots here :D

The 1st pic focus pic, yeah wasn't able to get the camera to focus on the butterfly on time to get it, before it flew off. :(

The second pic, its actually on a poor-green poster on a dusty wall. Wasnt able to get any colorful background on it :(


Here are the sources and the the finals (feel free to tinker with them if you want - I will provide RAW for some pics if anyone's interested) :-

Tiger is looking good...but dont you got any shot of tiger looking towards you...it would be better

you have improved the butterfly shot a lot from original...but still a leaf or flower would look better

Thanks guys...

Encrusted
Yeah, I have done it few time to hide the imperfection :)

Would you mind telling how the lighting was done for "encrusted". Though the other are similar to this one, but for this the light seems like lit inside the flower. It's the lighting, right? or is it PP? :)

@nac nice shot..but didnt you get the red moon...that I saw in newspapers
That's the reddest I got. :) I was arguing with my friends all day that we can't see this eclipse from India. It's happening during day time.. So I wasn't planning to take this photograph. May be it was little more red when it was in horizon. It was already 7 when we saw the moon and still I was saying that it's not eclipse, it could be clouds :) It took 15-20 min to reach home and grab our camera. And by the time we shoot, it moved well above the horizon.

A tricky question to answer. The shot was taken at evening with with bounce flash to completely darken the background in question(the ceiling partially helped in this). Second, the inherent color of flower helped me too. Whereas the outer part had a really dark shade, inner part was extremely light and reflective and accepted flash without much trouble. This extreme difference in gradient helped me to create a "glowing" look.

Wow!!! Thank you. Thanks for explaining.
