And so I was in Shillong, a place I had long wanted to go to. And there I was with my BFF on top of the mountain, the Shillong Peak, the topmost point of the city (6,449 feet (1,966 m) above sea level). And as it is with him, he often finds himself thinking (he’s quite the “philosopher”). “Hey, wassup man? What are you thinking?”, I ask. “Nothing.” “Okay, go back to thinking. Will make for a good portrait.. :)” This is probably the first photograph I have extensively used GIMP with, and seeing the results, I will probably use it for post processing for a long time to come. Leave your comments to lemme know what you “thought” of it. 🙂 EXIF Info Exposure f/3.0 1/200 sec ISO 80 Date taken 2011:07:04 13:05:12 Camera Canon PowerShot A470 View Lost in oblivion on flickr lightbox Spread the love Tweet Post navigation Rain in CherrapunjiCigarette 25 Comments nice portrait, the background is dreamy.
