The orange dart




The orange dart
They are the least talked about when someone talks about Bharatpur. But they can give the owlets and the pelicans a good run for their money! I loved these darters more than any other bird @ Bharatpur. One can make images all day long just concentrating on their orange beak! Your views most welcome!

Love the colors and light Kiran. I think nice decision on your part to retain it in color :) May be slight reduction in noise density would have added I guess (It might depend on the monitor ppi (pixels per inch) too, I am seeing this currently on my wide gamut 109ppi NEC display).

Wonderful image again Kiran !!! The darter's lair....those spiky ends of the leaves directing towards the bird with subtle amount of light all around is making this a great visual. Yes, I too think that noise can be reduced.

These darters were the stars Kiran. I liked the title too, You will have bit challenge in handling the noise to your liking while taking a print.

Thanks Ganeshanna, Dada and RD... I am just wondering, can someone please tell me how to check the dpi or ppi of my display? To me, the grain looks "just enough" but it could be me.. or it could be my display!! Any inputs? Or as i type here, I realize that i can Google for it :)

Got it... mine is indeed around 70 dpi... and now I also see that there is a huge difference in grains when I see it on a laptop display... hmmmm... very good learning!
