[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note

The summer this year was horrible and you can blame it on Global Warming. No insect to be seen and no trace of any butterflies. Then the monsoon delayed and it was literally desert. The mindset has changed and the hot and humid weather forced me to stay indoor and also blame the projects I was handling. Now that the monsoon has arrived and thereby created a natural environment for all the insects and beautiful butterflies. Though I occassionally take out my Camera and shoot. I missed TN and proud to be back again.

This is to start with and nice to be among the family of nature lovers.

Hello Ganesh,
Happy to see that you are posting again and sorry for the the heat and aridity you had in your region. Fortunately the monsoon came to bring back life to nature. And you took an excellent shot of this elegant yellow butterfly perched on a flower of the same color. A very subtle shot.
Thanks and kind regards

Slav Narayanan,
A very nice composition with excellent sharpness,details and nice colors.TFS.

I see you have dug into your archives to share this Common Wanderer with us, Ganesan. It is a lovely image.
Yes, the worst summer is behind us now and delayed monsoon has given a new lease of life to the insect world. However, work keeps me so busy I have really not taken out my camera in the past three months. Even now, I see lot of dragonflies and butterflies flying around, but I have no time to go chasing them.
Good that you are back after a break.
All the best from now on.

Hello Ganesh,
Happy to see your new posting. The image is well seen against off background. Great POV and composition. Very well done.

Hello Ganesh,
Great to see you back.
Beautiful, but a bit dark, photo. Excellent sharpness, details, OOF BG, POV and composition. Hope to see a lot more from you in the next days.

Hello Narayanan,

a very nice shot from this butterfly with good pov and dof.
Fine colours.


Hi Narayanan,
On the one hand I like the muted colors but on the other hand my photography hearts screems underexposure. Did you check you histrogram to see if the bulk of data is right from the center? You might want to adjust your levels and find a white point. That said, the composition is wonderful, the DOF is very good and so are the details.

Hi Ganesh,

It's sooooo good to see you again - I missed you! We had an awful summer to and we can't blame global warming - it was a typical hot summer with a muggy monsoon season which gave us left rain than we needed. Butterflies and insects have been rarities here too. A beautiful return shot of the lovely butterfly and pretty flower. Both subjects are excellent with nice colors and excellent details. I love the composition. Hope to be seeing more and more from you.


Hello Ganesh

Nice capture...
The POV and details are excellent...
But the lighting is dull...

I have posted a workshop on this picture...
Hope you like it...
