Low-Calorie Sub!

At the Foxtrot submarine museum on Ramakrishna Beach, Visakhapatnam on the day Arihant was launched. Yes, it was a warm day.

Wrong submarine!
Just kidding. I guess we will have to chill for now.
Meanwhile I have put ATV & Scorpene together to give a size comparison. This "baby boomer" wont be such a baby to our foes.

Shiv I can see what you are trying to do with the image here, but the execution is lacking since unfortunately you used too large an aperture. Use F11 or even F16 as aperture when taking such shots, and please google "hyperfocal distance".

You really deserve a better DSLR and lens system. "Order" your cheapass employer to buy you nice expensive kit ;)

Spending $10,000 one time on a DLSR, some L grade Canon optics and monopod is a very small price to pay for countless, memorable images you will provide for years. Indian media owners still can't differentiate between cost and value. Tell them they can resell the images via international publishing agencies to recover the cost of kit in mere months. Sigh....

last anon: thanks for the tip. unfortunately, i am nowhere close to being a professional photographer. i just carry a cam around to point and shoot. and i work for a television network, not a newspaper, so there's no real deal about kitting out with an expensive DSLR, no matter how much it costs. but your point is taken -- i do hope to make the time to understand photography better! there is no way in hell i'm gonna learn it on the internet, either way.
