Again, my observation of 3s and its multiples thereof...
I'd like to thank all of you who've been here for me through this journey of 200 posts.
I miss a few others, those few who were teachers to me, friends.
Thank you so much for all your guidance and valuable critiques, which has given me direction and help me learn the little I know about this art.
I know I've got miles to go and promises to keep....

Thanks for stopping by...thanks for everything!

Hola amigo,
bella escena y detalles,
buen foco y atractivos animales y color...
felicidades por tus 200 trabajos,

Congratulations on your 200th post, Goldy!
This landmark posting portraying a superb moment at Jim Corbett Park suits the occasion. You have done yeoman's service to the Park by presenting it to the world through TN. You have consistently stuck to the theme of Elephants and done justice to it.
This shot is very balanced and beautiful. The depth of view is fantastic with those wooded hills in the background.
Well done and all the best for your next 200!

Hello Goldy,
CONGRATULATIONS on your two hundredth, and thank you for showing us this beauty. The depth of field and exposure are perfect, great work Goldy. Hope to see much more of your fine work.

Hi L'il bro Goldy!
Congatulations! tahat you reached this milestone on TN! You selected a great represantative shot indeed. An elephant one!:)
Thanks for all pics my bro!
All the best!

Hi Goldy,

The point of view has captured the activities of the group of asian elephants. It is also taking our eyes toward the trees which is giving depth to the composition. The heat haze does not affect the colors of the picture. Have a nice day.

Hi goldy,
congrats for your 200th. This is a difficult scene to get. I have been wanting such in my country, but it is not possible. This one is a lovely scene, well composed in pleasant colours.
The jumbos are well spreaded in the canvas, so lovely.

Hi L'il Bro,

Congratulations on your 200th. A wonderful elephant family to celebrate with. They look marvelous spread out on the grassy plains with the lovely trees and mountains in the background. Colors and details of the animals are excellent. Here's to the next 200.


Beautiful shot, I like the colours and the soft lighting. The mother with the baby in the foreground brings a tenderness to the image.
