Excess water from the paddy feilds flows down watering other crops around the field. The Photograph was captured with slower shutter speed to give the water a silky appearance.


A overflowing well, with its lightly rippled water was reflecting the greenery surrounding it, the moment I saw this, I wanted the scene on my desktop. I had to increase the contrast in the camera setting to get maximum details of the reflection.

Paddy Field Lawn

Its Monsoons in Mangalore and the Paddy has almost grown now. Its the best time to go to the fields and enjoy the lush green look. Tried to photograph the top layer of the field, which appears like a lawn, keeping a few leaves of the crop in focus.

How to achieve this effect? The Idea is to keep the Shutter open for as long as possible (2 sec in this case). Well that means the photograph may get overexposed. To over come overexposure, use the lowest ISO available (here it is 80) use the smallest aperture or largest f number.Next is wait for the light to fade out or look for streams under shade. Also look for spots were the water breaks over rocks. I could not do that here.

Moss On Wall

This is a Macro photograph of Moss on the wall, you can see the edges of the picture are blurred out. I noticed it happens when u zoom the camera with the macro mode on. Here it adds the beauty by blurring the background.


Tasty Guava on a wet Rainy Day. The light was fading and I had to decrease the shutter speed, but being high up on the tree, the zoom was at its max. So getting a steady shot was tough. Balanced the camera on a Flat stone and used some twigs to get the elevation. (I sorely missed my Tripod)
