good work pal... I wished our 'bus' wala snap was here also. It wuz your idea altogether.

Anyway keep going

To comment, I liked the last one the most. Most realistic. Like some BBC or Reuters collection.

The snaps are just too good for a mobile cam. The color reproduction is too good.

Exhibit 4 & 5 – looks great…though good Ex- 6 had its share of excess light… :-)
The best from the cyber shot in terms of clarity would be Ex 15, with a classic silhouette… illumination against the black curtains of night - magnificent…
Ex 10, Ex 11 & Ex 16– Brilliant flow of thought’s… and without doubts I see a photojournalist in those clicks dear... try getting an SLR and start clicking LIFE in it different attires as soon as salary starts trickling in… ;-)

@ Rohit
The tibetan photo is one of my personal favorite.. I went into the protesting people sat with them for sometime to hear what was being said, but when i realised that they were speakin their native language then got their permission to take a few snaps. The tibetans are a really nice bunch of people... The whole protest was quite calm though the security was tight there...

just saw ur mail now..
nice collection, and nice work picking up these photos. as rejil said, u can think of having a lil professional approach to photography, get a better camera and start clicking.. the pics loos beautiful in the display size, but in original are a lil grainy.. try a greater ISO setting.
as for myself, i like the last one above all.. like said, there're many imotions expressed in that pic.. and also d interzone snap in sepia(or is it jus the late nite), it's really nostalgic. and the irinjalakuda field pic, i think i've a better pic ;) (u rem taking it on ma cam?)
nice work altogether buddy.. hatz off to u, hatz off to SE..

by the way, ex-11 fails to load,.. the one titled 'rays of hope'
look into it, will u?

Devidas said...

thank you Mr. Anil
i went thru your blog on sapgreen foundation and must admit that its a really noble work you people are putting forward... sad that its time for me to leave mysore.. else it would have been my privileage to be working alongside for such a noble cause...

Devidas said...

thank you rejileta for such extensive and intricate opinions you pointed out regarding the pics... i'm sure i can capture better pics given the proper resource for the same.. as u said let the salary start trickling in and then its SHOWTIME :)

Devidas said...

@ tintu
thanks for your comments da..
the street one was a paparazzi foto to admit.. the people didn't know that i had took a pic of them..
it was way too perfect to be left so i clicked it in..

Devidas said...

@ hailstone...
thnx dear...
as i could infer the tibetan foto is among my beloved fotos next only to the pic that got me and rayappan hooked with the civil case...
thnx for your comments
:)

Devidas said...

@ nivilan
yup i had noticed it at well... but i guess the limited features of my camera do not provide for the iso settings... its excellent in daylight fotography which one owes to the technology by sony...
the interzone pic was taken at abt 2 in the nite... the lighting was dim so i switched to sepia and took the foto with lighting from my bike's headlight... :) pretty smart huh? :)

Devidas said...

and abt the 11th pic
it loaded when i tried it da.. don;t know what happend at your end...
its a foto from the finals of ayyapa das hockey tournament at college.. the two kids in the pic are sons of the coaches f the two teams that met in the finals.. when the award ceremony was going on the kids captured the ground beatin around with sticks that were almost to their height.. it was a really cute moment...

Devidas said...
