Photo for February 2011: India
- Yes, it is the same location as the Photo for January. India was just such an awesome place that I really enjoyed my time there. Shooting on tripods was a big issue at plenty of attractions but since this was along a roadside, there was no fear of someone asking me for a permit.
2 timings were crucial here. The timing for which the sun will burst out from the sky but was still not the bright white spot it will in a while and the second is the timing where I capture the image. As expected, many frames were shot and this one caught my eye as the motion blur was just perfect (not just the shutter speed at work here but the speed of your subject as well) and the position of the subject was also the better one among the lot.
An ND grad was used to cut the exposure from the eastern sky and cropped to a more squarish format. And yes, that was planned when I was composing the shot.
