Thanks for sharing these Ram sir...just a few random comments on why i liked some of them a bit more than the others...

Pic 1 - very good example of moving the camera to get a "different" pic instead of using photoshop...loved the pic

Pic 2 - very good technical accuracy in terms of end to end sharpness

Pic 4 - loved this shot due to the exposure used here..its a very good example of a technically incorrect exposure being used on purpose to show a flower in a manner that makes it unique and different from everyone else's top down views of the same flower

Pic 5 - you settings here have got the best out of the dark colour, the balance between the centre of the flower vs the outer petals while keeping exposure on the water drops intact.

Last pic - very good handling of white without blowing out details

Exceptionally brilliant takes, Ram! :)

Have seen them in flickr earlier, nevertheless, they don't cloy the senses.

A very Happy New Year to you.

Mesmerizing stuff, something which a beginner like me would die to achieve. Although all of them are top notch, my favorite is 4th one.. TFS
