Hi Sandeep, 
Nice Composition. The white flowers to the right and complementing the red ones beautifully.
Curious to know why you clicked this at -1 exposure. Was the sunlight harsh?

Very nice capture of this flower arrangement! Your lighting control brings out those red anthurium foliage and flowers to its glory!

Excellent shot Sandeep with 400mm hand held. Like the colors and POV. Mermaid is awesome and the Anthuriums are gorgious.

Anon: I am glad that u called me a nature lover :) We cud've discussed why u r saying this, if there was a face/name behind the comment! Since thats missing, I have no choice but to ignore this comment which doesnt make much sense to me

Mridula: Indeed Mridula ... its well arranged. There were a few dolphins around this too :) I cudnt even capture the complete scene

Ripudaman: Thnx. I used a 400mm for this shot and I didnt have enough light or a tripod for that lens. So, the -1 ev worked better. Also, I've tried a shot with 0 compensation as well and liked the slightly darker version better

Joshi: Thnx Joshi, I like mermaids too ;-)

Nisha: Thnx Nisha

Mohkum: Glad u liked it buddy :)

Usha: To tell u a negative, it was soooo crowded!

Gowtham: Glad to see a comment from u :)
