  1. Wow, incredible blog layout! How long have you been blogging for? you made blogging look easy. The overall look of your website is magnificent, as well as the content!

  2. I have been absent for some time, but now I remember why I used to love this site. Thank you, I will try and check back more often. How frequently you update your website?

  3. Thank you. I am glad to have your prompt respond.

    I agree that mentioning copyright info in the pictures prominently is not a bad idea and many well-known photographers follow it. But I find it in your above pictures bit odd. I would like to suggest you placing clean text in subtle font color without using any Photoshop blending option at appropriate font size. And you can use also duplicate the text layer to create watermark for your pictures by changing layers opacity.

    How about ‘kishor Sharma © 2009’ or ‘Photo: Kishor © 2009’ in vertical alignment to the right frame for copyright visibility. This way viewer’s attention will go straight to the main theme of your picture not on copyright information. Try it and you will get my point more clearly.

    By the way, I have browsed your flickr pictures. They are wonderful. I would love to know more about Drik India. Please keep sharing.

  4. I agree. We can consider ourselves as privileged regarding this. Now a days it is very hard to find ppl smiling.
    Ya second picture is frm India but first one is frm Nepal. Regarding copyright I also keep IPTC data but I think this much of visibility can be considered regarding an artistic and creative work of Photographers, since it is a blog. Looking forward for ur opinion.
    Thanx for the suggestion n appreciation.

  5. Well said Kishor ji. We are all gifted with such smile. We Nepalese can smile against all odd and make others day bit more brighter. I am one big fan of ‘SMILES’ and count myself very lucky being a photographer who has this privilege to capture hundreds of beautiful ‘SMILES’ within the frame. I bet if ‘Leonardo da Vinci’ had a DSLR then, he would have captured hundreds and hundreds of such a world famous SMILES like Mona Lisa’s SMILE. So, make sure we ‘Photographer’ don’t miss any opportunity to capture more and more SMILES of our life.

    Both SMILES from Heart for sure and it takes skill of a photographer to freeze such moment in time beautifully.

    Seem like both of the picture from INDIA? Still copyright logo seems bigger. By the way, keeping IPTC data of your ‘master piece’ is more efficient and photographer’s trend to save copyright information.
