Hello TL,
Time to take break for me. Lot is going in my life, and I need to give attention to the things which are most important.

No, I've not stopped taking photos, but TL takes lot of time.

Thanks for your prayers in my difficult time recently.

Thank you Refugee, Hendrika, Dingo, JohnTulip for sending me birthday card. Eventhough I didn't celebrate my birthday this time, I really appreciate your wishes.

Thanks for support.
If time permits, I'll visit your photos.
Those who are interested can visit here to see my photos.

For the time being, bye, adios.

Lovely capture with good detail. Enough blur on the wingtips to show movement. I also like the composition with open space to the left.

Hope all goes well with you personally.

I wish you a very goog and healty time.
No doubt you will be back here.
Adios, dear Vandana.

This is a really nice shot Vandana, love the reflection of he bird in the water. I wish you all the best during your break. Sometimes things seem larger than they really are. Take care of yourself first, worry about others later.

I'd say "enjoy your break", Vandana, but I'm sure you'll always enjoy photography so there's no need for those words. Indeed, TL takes a lot of time, and a break is often very welcome.
A nice symbolic picture with the gull taking off. Excellent compo and beautiful work on the exposure. Just a slight, unavoidable OE on the white plumage, and a wonderful transparency on its left wing.
Take care my friend, and we'll definitely keep in touch.
Bye and TFS

Hi Vandana,
It's so nice to see your work once again. I really like the composition and reflection in this photo. Your timing in this shot was perfect. Take care.


Hi Vandana,

Glad to see you again in TL. I didn't know that you've a difficult time, I hope you are OK now. I miss your photos and I hope you'll be back sometimes. Thank you for sharing with us your photo page.
All the best,

Hello Vandana,

Preciosa composición con esos reflejos en el agua me gusta como has captado el movimiento del pájaro en el momento apropiado... Buen trabajo.



A beautiful shot, Vandana.

Best wishes,

Hi Vandana,

I know You momentarily aren't here, but it doesn't mean I don't comment the image and what's behind it. We know You've had difficult times. Sometimes all of us need a break from a circle like TrekLens... it really takes a lot of time. But we hope You come back once.

About the photo: being an action shot, You haven't had the time for long camera settings, I know. From one side it's a bombastic image, superb sharpness, exposure etc. From another: a vertical compo would even have been more effective, with both the bird and its shadow. Just an opinion only, which doesn't mean I don't like this horizontal version.

I'm not sure if You'll read all these, but I wish You health, happiness, love, and all which is important in life. I truly wish to meet You here again, too. Friendly regards from Hungary, László

PS: and if You don't come back: thanks for all Your useful comments, tips, workshops which helped me a lot to improve my skills. You'll never be forgotten.

Hi Vandana,
I'm sorry you had to go and hope, from the bottom of my heart, that you're doing well.
I wish you all the best.
Kindest regards,

Hellow Vandana,
Wonderful!!..Because you come back..That's why
I am very very glad my friend...
Here is the life..Here is the freedom!!..
Your composition is excellent.tfs.
