I shot this picture during one of my road trips to Florida. This building is located in the intersection of two state highways in a little town called Baker. Liked the effect that sunlight was creating on this red building. I did do a little crop and "I am feeling lucky" in Picasa. You can see the original image here. I kept the pedestrian crossing light in the frame because that is what gives it a "stop and see" effect.
Did I do justice by cropping this image? Please share your thoughts!
As always, a BIG "Thank you" for all of you who take your valuable time to visit and comment.
Yet another macro. I posted a different angle below (for perspective). I love this one better because of the color. Also, this angle makes it look huge. If you like this one you will like "Giant in me" that I posted a few days ago. Any comments?
PS: My wife shot the "Take off into sunset" shot from yesterday.
Here is one more sunset shot. I sharpened the image in picasa. Is there anything else I could have done, with picasa, that would have made this image look better? Please share your thoughts and I will post process accordingly and post it in tomorrow suppliment post. Thanks for your feedback!

Some of you wanted to see a closeup shot of yesterday's macro flower. Here it is. I did some sharpening and added saturation to this. You have to zoom and see to appreciate the details. I personally liked yesterday's post better. Which one do you like? Let me know. Also here are some awesome macro shots from my friends at: 1. Sombras 2. Bhootakannadi
As you can see, this is the reflection of an evening sky in a small puddle on the road. Color of the cloud was due to sunset. I purposely captured a little bit of asphalt to give it a perspective. Let me know how you like it.
Thanks to everybody who shared some valuable tips on macro photography.
One more macro shot. I just love this. I always wanted to capture early morning dew drops on a flower. This was a perfect opportunity. This image looks awesome in 5MPs. I can send you one if you want to see it. Just send me a note.
Let me know how you like it. Is there anything that I should keep in mind while shooting a macro, that would improve shots like these? Let me know your thoughts!

As you can see, this was shot from an airplane during one of my earlier trips. I like this shot because, you can see a little bit of land and some clouds as well. I shot this just before we entered a thick patch of clouds. Note the reflection in the wing. It faded as we enterd into the coluds.
Let me know how you like it.
Thanks for your comments on yesterdays post. Have a great weekend!
This is one of my favorite sunset shots. This one is shot at Lake carlyle too. If I have to equate a feeling with this shot, it would be "peaceful"!. I just love the way it came out. No post processing. Hope you will like it as much as I do.
While we were at the St.Louis Zoo, we attended a Sea Lion show. It was very interesting. Got some lovely shots there. I like this the most! I have a similar shot without the trainer and was debating which one to post. I decided on this one because I believe the trainer himself is a part of the sea lions family. Notice how the cub has its eye's closed! Very cute!
Let me know your thoughts! Also, many thanks for people who are taking the time to visit and comment!
This is one of my favorite macro shots! Actual size of this flower(I don't know its name) is about an inch. This shot makes it look huge. Since I absolutely loved the way it came out, I did not do any post processing. You will love it too when you see it in its original size. For some reason, blogger reduces the size of the image when you upload. I have this image in 5 MP. If you want to see it in this resolution, let me know, I will send one to you.
Thanks to all of you who take time to visit and comment! Let me know how you like this one.
I'm back. For those of you wondering what happened, I was out of town this weekend with no access to a computer. Thanks for visiting this blog and your continuous support.
This shot was taken from my office window. Sometimes when I say I am from St.Louis, the first question people ask is about the "ARCH". This is the world famous St.Louis Arch as seen from my office. I loved how the sunshine is reflected on the arch in this shot. It was just perfect. As you can see, there is a lot of noice (distraction) around the two builidings, so I have used very little soft focus to make the arch stand out even more than it is already!
Once again, thanks for visiting and sharing your thoughts!
