[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Dear friends,

It has been six & a half monts since I joined Trek Nature & since then it has become a part of my daily routine to post a shot and write my daily quota of critiques.

I have posted 111 posts so far & have written 15 critiques per day on an average.

The response of all the friends here have been great and I have learned so much about photography in these six months which I never learned earlier.

I came across so many lovely members here who share love for nature & passion for photography.

Its time for me to take a break and start afresh after sometime. I thank you all for all the love & support. I will be back soon after a break.

See you soon & God bless all :-)

Hi Pankaj,

You will be missed - hurry back.

Beautiful colors in this picture. I like the shades of yellow.


Thanks for sharing a great 'goodbye'!
Colourful as always. India means a bit Pankaj's colours for me.
See you soon!

Hello Pankaj,
So you are taking a holiday. Hope you enjoy your break and come back fresh and with lot of new materials. As always this is an impressive picture. Markings on wings are clearly recorded and color saturation is great. What can I say - Till we meet again:)

Hi Pankaj.
What an amazing pictured scene. Its richness impresses the imagination. Colour palette is simply fantastic too: beautiful yellow flowers and butterfly, amazing dark green surroundings, nice light spot at BG this is perfect. Quality of the shot at any respect is excellent too. Bravo and my congratulations.

Hello Pankaj,
There is this thing about TN that makes this site almost addictive. Sometime, I just can't resist posting or commenting pictures which is really a “time consuming” activity :)

I understand this break you need. I would have been a member since one year next July and sometimes; I tell to myself that I put too much time and energy in this site. But you know, I have this other impression of having taken and accelerated photography class since I'm here and I learn so much about nature and techniques.

Take this time you need and I can tell that your nice pictures and the person you are will be missed.


BTW, This is as usual, a great picture with superb colors, details, environment and exposure. Beautiful!

Hello Pankaj,
First of all thanks for this beautiful capture of this "sunny" butterfly and for all your brilliant pictures so far and secondly I hope you enjoy your break from TN. I think it is a very positive decision - I'm sure I'll soon need a break too - after all, it does take up a lot of time even if it is most enjoyable.
See you soon again Pankaj and enjoy life!
All the best wishes, Ulla

Hi pankaj,
Sorry to see you go.Hope you will return soon.
You were the first to welcome me to TN.Your ctitiques were always an encouragement to me. You have always delighted me with your beautiful butterfly pictures. You and your butterfly shots will be missed. Hoping to see you soon, Smitha.

Hello Pankaj,
Whatever your reasons for taking a break I hope it is a short one because I will miss your fine butterfly shots, like this one of C. pomona, a great sharp and well composed shot up to your usual high standards.
I shall also miss your involvment in TN in general and hope you'll come back to us soon!
TFS and all the best,

Hello Pankaj,

Superb shot of this lovely butterfly, fantastic colours and lighting. Beautifully composed. You will be missed, and we look forward to your return. Be safe and may your travels be filled with happiness.


bonjour pankaj
en voila un qui tentéit de se cacher mais vous avez eu l'oeil et l'avez demasqué.
composition agreable et colorée.bine fait.

Enjoy your break but continue taking good pictures like this one, Pankaj, preferably of butterflies :-)!
As the top-notch butterfly buff from India, your short sabbatical will create a vacuum, which, I'm sure, you will make up for when you return.
Compelled to extend my over-stay here in Saudi by another month or so, I also eagerly look forward to change my tracks soon.
All the best.

hi pankaj;This is a beautiful capture, excellent macro work with great detail and colour. Very well done! Thanks so much for sharing

Hi Pankaj,

Hi Pankaj,
We'll be waiting your soon return! Your first season has really been a good one!
Wonderful and happy photo to say a temporal good bye.
TFS, José M.

Most of us come and go, but at last here we are!
Hope you follow well, MF.

PD: I forgot... beautiful photograph :)

Dear Pankaj,
It's sad to see that your're leaving TN for a while but it's also immediately good news to read that it's only for a short time and that you soon will be back! Your exemplary pictures are a great delight and joy to us and your postings have always been eagerly awaited and warmly received. I know that TN at times can have the effect of "positive addiction" and that a need for "reset" may become urgent (I myself did a restart last fall after an intensive period and started from scratch a couple of weeks ago). I'm sure your "retreat" has been thoroughly contemplated by you and wish you a wholesome temporary withdrawal from TN with the prospect of a happy comeback; this outstanding C. pomona surely stands as a grand finale to your present achievement on TN!
Take care!
With best regards,

Hope to see you back soon, my friend!
Whatever you decide, take care and have a great time!

Hi Pankaj,
this is a fine photo of the yellow butterfly with good details in it's eyes.There is some graininess to this picture but that doesn't hurt it much.So you need a break,that is something I understand.Enjoy your time off and may you get more of the shots that you enjoy and might later care to share.Tfs. Bob

I've been too busy with no much time to enter TN many days and I missed your last post for this first season :( this marvellous Catopsilia.
I have to thank you for all these 111 posts and your many kind and likeable comments.
I will miss you while you are away. Please, come back soon.
Have a nice and fruitful break.
