Window of Light


An Unsuccessful attempt to catch up with sleep on a Saturday afternoon,made me pick up my gear and head towards Varthur Lake.Varthur is one of the agricultural villages around Bangalore that are on it way to destruction,because of the real estate boom in the city.

The Weather was dull and the light was gone even before i left home,but still just wanted to get there and do a few clicks even if they end up in the trash bin.After a 45mins wait,i got lucky with the clouds moving away from the setting sun and was lucky to get this small window of light.

Though the GND misalignment kills the picture,i still liked it.

Cool da!

But I expected the feature of grandness and brightness with a theme like this.So I feel it would be great if you try to capture that!

@plasma:
Thanks for stopping by.I am glad you liked the picture.

I normally prefer to keep the technical details away from the picture,but quite a few people had pointed out the GND misalignment,which made me write it here.

GND means Graduated Neutral Density.GND Filters are a piece of glass that you insert in front of your lens.The Camera cant handle the variations of light in a scene,as much as our eye can handle it.To control these variations in light ,we use a GND.Hope it helps.
