@Ramesh-I am out of Bangalore only. That is still a beautiful part of the world. :-) Home, sweet home. On a short visit to the US. That place is beautiful though. Famous for surfing as well. Actually, this comment is typed in from your country. Awaiting transit at Hong Kong International Airport, to home. :-)

@chennai girl-Seriously, Marina IS beautiful. No doubt about it. The only thing is there are a lot of people thronging it. Namma oor arumai vera oorukku ponaa thaan theriyum. :-)

Wow...kalakareenga!!!..
Dont mistake me, but did u edit the pics after u clicked them?..coz, the colors are so vibrant and so good to be raw images... :)

I went yesterday to chennai's own marina's beach to click few sunrise shots, took arnd 200 odd shots but something was amiss now that i see ur pics, mine looks lame.. :(( BTW, wat cam do u use?

@TheUncanny-Thanks. I did no special editing. (I can send you the raw JPEGs if you need to look at it :-)) I used Picasa for the collage. And I used a Nokia N73's camera phone (3.2 MP) for the shots. I changed the color balance on the camera to vivid rather than normal (or neutral) because the colors come out really well. And most important of all, the sun sank with a glorious goldening of the clouds. Out of around 50 odd shots, these were the ones that passed muster. I ran out of cell phone battery power. I used a 25% quality grading on the generated JPEG to put it on the Web (the collage was 2.7 MB)

The middle photo is the best of the lot, the way Sun rays pierce the clouds is serene. Great shots Ram

@Mayil-Thanks. It was serene watching it as well with that cold breeze and the sound of the waves crashing.
