Quack Quack

I've just realised that the best time to take photographs is when I get fed up with studying. It (photography) elevates my mood to another level completely.

In four words, this is 'photography at its best!' I have a vague feeling that a bit of photoshop was used. But if not, this is my favourite pic on your blog (till date)

P.S. Post the link to the HiRes version

nice pic man!!..though it would look cooler if you make the water look like the water around the ducky is in the shape of tiles(like this pic has that kinda effect on the right hand side at the moment)..dunno if u get what i mean..will try and forward you a pic which has that effect, looks too cool..anyways nice clear pic :)

Thanks a lot guys. And for the record, Photoshop was used only for a little bit of colour adjustments. Here's a link to the 1200x800 res version of the above.

if you make the water look like tiles..

Dude the surface is already like tiles. Also I don't think it would be very realistic to not have ripples when a duck swims by. Again, I didn't add any of those things anyways.

Awesome photo. I began to think you're going to stop taking photos at ISO 100. And then this.

Rungta said.. Reply

Yeah well the lack of a tripod makes it inconvinient to take shots at low ISOs due to the usual lack of suffiicient lighting. Luckily that wasn't the case above.

That is soooo true!
It's just what happens to fact, whenever I'm studying, after some time, I obsessively pick up the camera ;)

BTW. the photo's very cute.

OK, I have no idea how it put a gravatar image next to my comment...I'm not even registered for gravatar yet!!
BTW, i've changed my website url, and you'll find that on my name-link.

@Sumdeh: Guess we're all looking for a way to escape studying :). As for the Gravatar, that's the default image its showing, and you just never stop switching urls do you?
