A tree and a leaf in Winter!

Indian Winter
Norwegian Winter

Here is my post for Cee’s fun foto challenge: Leaves and Trees 

I should have spent some time in picking up images but I am absolutely tired today. I was on a short hike after full day work. Though it was just 6 kms and height was 400m but still. Soon will post the fresh snow and frozen photos. For now hope you like the chosen ones.

Thanks Dahlia for inspiring me 🙂


Focussing right!

Another wonderful post by Raj@Xdrive inspired me to dig into my photo archives and share my thoughts/images with my fellow bloggers.  Lesson no. 9 on Learn Photogrpahy  is all about focus .   Raj says “…our focus point is of greater importance as for as the final output is concerned.”  OMG, this is what I learned in early days of photograpy. I was quite happy with this little finding 2 years ago.  Presenting two images from the past:

Next is to show how things change when we crop a picture. The first picture looks OK but after cropping I ralized that it was not properly focussed. The image details are  f/5.6, 1/125sek. and ISO 100

Below are some shots to illustrate “focus” with photo details.

1/125 sec., f/5.6 55mm, ISO 220
1/160 sec. f/6.3, 55mm, ISO 100
1/40 sec. f/4.2, 31mm, ISO 400
1/15 sec., f/5.6, 55mm, ISO 400

Hope you all enjoy this post. Now it’s time to listen to Raj!
