Here's an Eared Grebe from the archives of winter last. All photo gear are gathering dust in their cabinets while I struggle to cope with the last week of student life. I should get back to the birds soon...

Ideally, with so much at stake, I should not be spending as much time I am spending on Google+ today, but so much is being said about the Lightroom 6 HDR comparing it to Photomatix that it was too tempting to do a very very quick and dirty comparison myself. Here are two 5-exposure HDR shots - the one on the left done using Lightroom and the other one with Photomatix (tone mapping/detail extractor algorithms with all default value sliders). I got to say I liked the output of both but tend to agree with +Trey Ratcliff that it was way too slow to work with Lightroom. Photomatix was much more snappy and offered a hell of a lot of options, but I guess to each his own....

Choose what you like and keep clicking and merging folks ;-)

Here's how the elder ladies of yesteryear relaxed their evenings after winding up their daily chores - the Indian version of Ludo. Happy to see it still happening in my home town.

In more urban settings, these days, its soap opera that seems to have become the rage amongst women of all ages..... and even the menfolk.

The Tamilians especially origin of VIRUDHUNAGAR and THUTHUKUDI(TUTICORIN) old and young folks play this game as a relaxation after their daily home works. The play is still continuing in our GRANDMAAS HOUSE (Aachi's ) at THUTHUKUDI we are proud of this. Thanks to the photographer Ram Prakash .

One more reason not to post in Facebook.



Here's something that may raise quite a few eyebrows among photographers who use Facebook: a representative of the social network has apparently said in an

I've seen this guy only once in the 6 years I've spent in California and I don't see it being played here so I guess a Grasshopper Sparrow must be quite a rarity...

Well... if this shot looks somewhat "filmy", its because this image was made using a camera made in the previous century and Fuji Velvia slide film ;-)
Yeah... you can get your daily fix of adrenalin rush out of shooting birds with primitive equipment like these rather than bows and arrows... like this lady here - http://rebeccafrancis.com/wp/ - ( brought to my attention via +Mike Spinak's earlier post)

Playing it once... for old time's sake ;-D
