[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Dear friends,

Since last couple of months I have been a part of this wonderful community of lovely people here in Treknature.To be precise I am 82 days old here and today I am posting my 50th picture here.

I have never been so serious about photography and never loved nature so much but by each passing day this love for nature and passion for photography is growing.

I am thankful to Robert Brown for suggesting such a wonderful idea of having a website like Treknature where people can learn about photography with learning about nature too.

I am also thankful to all the members of Treknature who share such wonderful posts and give valuable critiques about photography and share there knowledge and information about nature.

A few of my friends have been very kind in encouraging a novice like me with there remarks and critiques on my posts.

I thank everyone who has spared time to see my pictures and given valuable critiques and would like to name a few of them:

Thanks a lot Mr Ram Thakur, Claudine, Krzysztof, Ulla, Mhmet, Ivan , Scott, Annick , Biswarup, Horia, Jitti, Loot, Sabine, Manyee, kyle, Maite, Laurent, jose, milos,osse, silvio, Donna, Dave, paula , Pablo, Peter Stoeck, Jose, volkan, Ben, Budi, Ricardo, Juyona, Nel, Steph, Paula, mat, saeed.

Love you and god bless you all.

thanks a lot.

Hearty congratulations on your maiden "half century", Pankaj [to use terminology from our national craze :-)]!
You have grown into a mature nature photographer within this very short span of time and thereby proved an asset for TN.
Wish you numerous "centuries" in the coming months and years!
Your 50th picture of this pretty yellow butterfly, which you have captured very well as usual, is a fitting post on this occasion.
All the best.

c'est juste un peu dommage que la feuille sur laquelle la papillon est posé soit un peu OE car j'aime bien le fait que la lumiere traverse les ailes et leur donne cette couleurs particuliere.
bon cliché malgres cela.

Hello Pankaj,
Congratulations - soon it'll be 100 I hope! We do love having you here too!
Beautiful shot of this yellow butterfly with strangely shaped spots on the wing - a bit like leaves. I would guess it is quite a small one. Pretty sharp and nice composition.
TFS and best wishes, Ulla

Hello Pankaj,
It's been a pleasure seeing your photos and writing my critiques of them, practically all which have been positive. Likewise it has been encouraging to read your critiques of my shots and I thank you for that.
Your fiftieth is suitably fine in every respect, the tips of the antennae hidden behind the leaf as if to signal for surprises to come!
Many thanks and best wishes, Ivan

Otra bonita captura de esta bella mariposa Pankaj, con una intensa iluminación bien controlada.
El contraste con el fondo, los intensos colores y un apropiado encuadre son los puntos fuertes de esta imagen.
Gracias por tus 50 presentaciones y por la pasión demostrada en cada una de ellas.
Mis mejores deseos... Ricardo

Another beautiful capture of this beautiful butterfly Pankaj, with a well controlled intense illumination.
The contrast with the bottom, the intense colors and an appropriate framing are the strong points of this image.
Thank you for your 50 presentations and for the passion demonstrated in each one of them.
My best wishes... Ricardo

Hello Pankaj!
At first sight, it seems like a couple of leaves, but then you realize and discover the details and beauty of that butterfly.
A delicate presentation, with an upper backlight that crates a sensational ilumination, and creates the transparency on the wings.
Great the POV and the aperture used here.
The frame and presentation are the right ones.
Congratulations for this photo and for the first 50's, we still wait much more wonders from you,
Kind regards,

Hi Pankaj

I'm sorry but i'm a little bit behind with my critiques...i've seen this picture some time ago but only now i get to tell you how lovely it is!
First of all, congratulations from your 50th post!
Second, this is Beautiful!
The details on this colorful butterfly are superbly sharp and clear, the light, although quite difficult, you managed excellently and the composition and framing great.
Also the POV and DOF are spot-on and the tones are lovely adn well saturated.
Bravo, my friend and TFS
