did you do any post processing at all? looks like all you images can do with some sharpening.

Good start, indeed. I, too, like the first shot the best.

Blessings,

Nathan

Hi Gaggu, good eye for photos. well done. That first pic looks good at a glance but still seems to be leaning to the right and back a bit.

The backward lean is of course because of the tilted camera with the wide angle (14mm- Not sure if you could have stepped back a bit and used a longer focal length)

Picasa also has a slide (Fill light) on the basicfix for lightening the shadowed area that would make the pic not so contrasty. As Prajull pointed out, a touch of sharpening helps.

Nice shots inside as well. It's been years since I've been in there and some of the angles of the column ans walls are really interesting almost "Esher" like.

Keep on shooting.

Hmmm ... well pointed out. I actually didnt notice the right lean so much.

I know what you mean to say about the interiors ... infact there's a very interesting
shot which I took but it looks slightly underexposed so I didn't post it.

But I will as soon as I get home ... I'll try to work on brightening it up a bit
though.

Cheers,

paint & picasa are not good enough for editing. Try your hands at other free demos on the web and buy them if think you will put them to good use. Gimp is a nice & free alternative for the casual user. I've been using it for the past 3 years.
