[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
This is taken from the balcony of a Hotel room where I was staying some time around 8o clock in the morning.
The sun and the clouds were playing this nice game resulting in the effect which I tried to capture.

Hello Gaurav,
Since you added me into your list of favourites, I thought I would pay you a visit.
I see you have just begun delving into nature photography. Good idea. So welcome to TN!
Coming to your landscape picture, you have chosen the frame with a good eye for composition.
Shimla is my sasuraal, so I know the place inside out. Moreover, I studied there. This view of the hills seen from anywhere on Shimla Sanjauli road would show the hills on Tatta Paani side. I myself have taken quite a few pictures from this perspective.
No matter which camera you have, framing is very iomportant. You have a good sense of framing. But then a few tips:
* Try to avoid those electric wires within the frame; they are a kill-joy
* Keep your hands steady if you are not using a tripod.
* Select camera settings manually, keeping in mind the light conditions. Requires patience and knowledge about the manual shooting menu.
* Post processing is important in digital photography. Use a good editing software and make your picture look better by tweaking things like sharpness, saturation, colours and contrasts.
Hope you did not mind my lecturing.
Keep shooting and all the best.
