Respected TN Members

I happened to goto Goa last week alongwith my parents. It was really a memorable trip. I had happened to see long beaches, went for motor rides, saw a lot of crabs and also dolphins. The trip to the dolphin point was very nice but the disappointing note was we could not shoot the dolphins.

My father promised me that he will show me the crabs hiding behind the rocks and I indeed watched them hiding behind the rocks and then suddenly coming out and going back to their den.

It was going on for sometime but then I saw this little bird suddenly moving out of the rocks and was standing in front of us. But the approach was not good as it was standing in the middle of the rock and sorrounded by sea waves. The coastal baywatch guard did not allow me or my father to go and take a picture. We were disappointed and were returning back. But then suddenly this bird was standing in the sea shore and enjoying the waves. I took the camera from my father and went on to shoot to my heart's content.

Hope you all like it. I will post more later on the beaches and the crabs.

Wow!!! What a marvellous picture, Vignesh!! I really like a lot this beautiful bird with that curious beak. I love the magnificent framing and focus, and the composition is really gorgeous with so fantastic details and the splendid capture of the reflection! Much more than I could have done at your age.
Thank you very much to you and your father for drawing my attention to your splendid gallery full of beautiful pictures.

Hi Vigs,
The bird certainly seems to be enjoying itself. I must appreciate the way you have tried to capture the reflection in the water. Good job! Hope to see more of Goa thru your pictures.

Hello Vignesh. Very nice capture with stunning reflection. Excellent sharpness and detail. TFS. Jusni

Dear Vignesh,
Happy to know your mom and dad took you to Goa.
You have written a good account of your experiences there in your note.
[Pssssst....when you use the verb 'return', don't use 'back' with it; use it with 'come' and 'go' only, because 'return' itself means 'come' or 'go' back.]

You have taken a wonderful picture of this bird in Goa.
The focus is spot-on, details are sharp and clear and the colours and contrasts are excellent.
The overall composition is first class.
Well done and keep on taking good pictures like this one.
Take care.

Hi young Vignesh,
Outstanding shot and you are learning very fast under your dad's tutelage. Very skillfully captured image with great timing. You have freezed this moment well and the ripples in the water and the reflection looks awesome. Nice to know that you had been to Goa and saw so many things. Must have been very educative too. Hope to see many many more images like from you in the coming days. Kudos.
