Something different!!

I had clicked this photo early this month, with a preference to process it with texture, finally decided to do that today :)

Hope few will like it!

Interesting fact: this photo was taken with 70-300... with 18-55 the sun looked too small so had to shift to telephoto and go long way away from the beach to get the sun in perspective with the cycle!! (was lucky to find someone with cycle anyway :) )

this shot is all about the bokeh... well the flowers are there... to add to he beauty :)

This was a "lazy shot" taken from passenger seat.. but i have reasons to believe that this was the best position i could have been for this shot :)

Taken in Amboli Ghat on way back from Tarkarli earlier this month!

i must say.. focusing on eyes of a spider hidden deep into a thick web (mess)... was pretty hard... it looks scary but i am happy with the result... any suggestions to make it better?

BTW... this is with bare Sigma-apo-dg-macro.. without Raynox.. and with bare camera pop-up-flash... TAKE THAT!! :)
