Hi all,
Today i present you a picture of "Rose Ringed Parakeet" . I found these birds feeding on custard apple (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Annona_squamosa ) while i was driving around periphery of a reserved forest near Bangalore. The weather was dull and it was late evening, but with pushed ISO i was able to get this shot. The BG is diffused palm leaves!

Hello Goutham,
Thank your for your workshop...I am always open for suggestion and critique. It is the best way to learn from others. When I buy a lens I always read the comments and review of the other photographers.....
This photo is a superb image and it goes to my favorites......

Hi Goutham,
I like the intense colours and the special light of your pic. Very nice...

Namaskar Goutham

The relatively light colours of the parakeet come out beautifully against the darker noisy yet picture enhancing BG. The attention goes right on the little black dot. Superbly done.

Hello Goutham,
A photo in splendid clarity and bright colours. Beautiful contrast against the dark background. Good sharpness and a pleasing composition.

I have just recently started fiddling with ISO ratings, Goutham, and I realize that a judicious selectionof it can really help in making a good picture under low light conditions.
With 800 ISO, your picture of this Rose-ringed Parakeet has turned out to be a masterpiece with lovely colour tones and overall appeal. The blurred BG of palm leaves lends an artistic touch to the composition.
Thanks and regards.

Hello Goutham
Very well composed image of our common Bengal bird
We call it Tiya.
Beautiful saturated colour gives me an intense filling.
Lovely blurry BG make this a 3D effect.
Best wishes,
