> Did you notice that the painter is starting with the last alphabet "N" of the word SALOON????

Awesome pics guys!

Dr. that tonga pic is superb! And your pups are so cute!

Moin, a small suggestion - if you could add an identifier watermark or something which Doc Nishith has done. More so since you take a lot of portraits.

And yes..... that knife pic is the best of the lot!!
Cheers!

Now that you mention it, I can see the horse! Photographs, as in the old days, are meant to be printed and not seen on a 15" lappie screen with multiple reflections!!

Is that big bolt action gun yours?
Cheers!

Kumarnishith you got a lovey collection of species, whatever composition you execute succeeds better if you leave some breathing space around the subject.I have observer that the tighter composition is more favored among western photographers which is not exact fit for natural history.
