Title: GAME - ABCD
Post by: theqca on October 19, 2014, 10:37:49 AM
All of us have been taught the English alphabet in the form of A for Apple, B for Ball etc etc or something similar...lets do it now photography style!

Here's how the game works -

I start the game by posting a photo with a title or subject that starts with the alphabet "A" (in this case its "abyss" and then add a line to say "A for Abyss".

The person posting the next photograph needs to post a photo with a title or a subject that starts with the next alphabet. In this case its "B" so he posts a photo that (for example) has a title called "Blue suede shoes". So he writes there "B for Blue suede shoes". (Blue suede shoes is just an example..you choose any title that starts with B)

The next person then has to post a photo with a title / subject that starts with "C"...the one after that has to be with D etc etc etc..

Lets see how soon we reach "Z".


Rules

Its a fun game so there are no winners
Post photos which have been taken by you and not photos from the internet
Post only 1 photo in each reply
If you've got more than one pic for a particular title then post the best one only.
If you've posted a pic then please wait and give others a chance to post the next one. You may have photos from A to Z but dont spam the thread ;)


Give some details about the photo :  - this will add value to your post and help viewers understand the photo better
Where was the pic taken
Any particular reason why you took the pic
Some details about the title
Lens, Camera etc

A for Abyss

(http://farm8.staticflickr.com/7344/14027789021_c86d51669e_c.jpg)

Shot at lonavala...at the edge of a deep valley in the evening just before sunset.

I wanted a photo with the sun as a star-burst...something that looks like "assassins creed" ..what i found difficult was to get 3 things in the same shot - starburst + subject as a silhouette + some details in the foreground so that the rocks look good.

I remember spotting a snake that passed by next to me ...when i sat down on the rocks to shoot this pic...walking back to the car some locals who spotted the snake were trying to kill it by throwing stones....i told them not to..the snake managed to escape..

Had tentatively titled this as Journey. Never know it would come in handy here.
Shot in Thailand on our way from Maya Bay to Phi Phi [Ton Sai Bay]. That guy in the foreground was one of the crew on the boat. That Carlos Valderama hairdo was total kickass.

Prabir - thats a riot of colours on the Lilac-breasted Roller! The ochre pic looks good too - the dark background makes the yellow stand out.
G2 - since you've moved to Australia now most things in life would look up side down to you :D
Doc Pushpinder - something different..looks good due to the sunlight and the angle..another shot that i'd like to try out someday.

Signature spider full size link (http://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:Signature_Spider_at_Dang_forest.jpg)

Taken with the Kit lens leaning down and shooting upward.
Manually focused on the spider tried to stay away from the b/g bright spots to pick up the signature.
At 55mm I got reasonable DOF so that most part of web came into focus.

Hope people like it. . .
