Waiting for some one?
A beauty indeed.
Superb colors and details against a clean BG.
Fantastic eye contact.
Would it enhance the composition if you cropped out the little twigs on the right hand side? They took my eyes away from the subject.
But maybe they give something for the roller to look at.
A gorgeous image. TFS. : )

Hi Murali , this is a fabulous shot , the color and detail along with the background are all perfect , great focus and sharpness. I agree with the comment on the thorns on the right side of the photo , they do grab attention a bit. none the less it is a great photo.
Another beauty from B'lore, You have got it right in all aspects, nice perch,buttery smooth green BG, excellent head turn and spot on focus and exposure as topping :)

Hello Murali Sir,
I am missing the group shoot. Probably next time. The shot is perfect and I am sure it was waiting for you. The lighting and the frame is superb. Ganesh
You guys at Bangalore are producing stunning images of this bird I too had shot once in Rajasthan.
Your picture of the Indian Roller is absolutely beautiful and tecnically of a very high quality. Superb frontal point of view, sharp focus and delightful colours.
TFS and all the best.

what a beautiful post.
Everything is perfect: colors, composition, sharpness, POV ...
Little remark: I'd crop out the little twigs on the right. They distract a bit.
Great shot anyway.

Lighting you were talking about is absolutely brilliant.
Touch up the 3 little branch rests to the right; that's why this Indian roller looks a bit upset:-)
