[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Gambooge.. its been taken from exuma...this is in taste and mostly used in food. especially when they prepare fish. Even though it looks like old with its beautifull wringles, its young gun to add taste to foods...

In Indian traditional medicine, this species was prescribed for edema, delayed menstruation, constipation and intestinal parasites. In the form of precoction, it was also used for rheumatism and bowel complaints.

Dear Ren,

Belated welcome to TL!
I wish you a great time here.

About your picture:

I like the focus you have achieved on your subject and contrast against a well blurred BG. The light and exposure are nice too. There is no doubt as well that this picture is well taken from a nice POV and well kept DOF, however, it is my personal thinking that without a note the picture lacks its spirit and unfortunately this is the case here!

Therefore, I suggest you to please accompany a note explaining something about your posted picture, e.g., what kind of PP work (if applied) you did to your picture OR what were your intentions while taking this shot etc. In addition to these aspects you can even mention other feasible conditions like how could you improve your picture and so on...

I must mention here that you have some striking portrait works in your TL picture gallery and some marvelous landscape and floral postings but sadly most of the picture do not bear any notes.

The absence of an accompanied note declines the overall appeal of the picture and not to mention that even it does not fulfill the TL TOS conditions.


*See Photographer's Notes (under TOS on TL):

All photos must contain a note of a minimum of 40 characters in order to be uploaded. Only meaningful notes will be considered, so please do not try to get around the issue by posting nonsense such as "fhgdfhd rthdfjgbnd fgjkfk". The following other nonsensical notes will also be deemed inappropriate: using your camera description / exif data as a note, clicking the space bar until you have reached 40 characters, repeating the same words or partial phrases over and over e.g.: "this is a flower this is a flower" and finally: notes that merely describe the obvious, e.g. : " this is a man standing in front of a church".

Notes that fit any of the above criteria may be subject to deletion by our moderators.

Kindly add a sufficient note ASAP otherwise your picture will be deleted soon.

Thank you for your understanding in advance!

Best regards

Paras / Moderator
