Very cool. Always difficult with so much light pollution. Sharp capture. Thanks for sharing.

I have an old Canon A2E film camera - pretty advanced features. It is lying idle. What should I do with it going forward? I bought the body and lens/55 for nearly $850++

That camera has the Canon EF mount which is the current default standard on all Canon bodies.
There's no point of you keeping it, sell it for whatever you're able to get for it as well as the 18-55mm lens¿

The $850 would have been atleast a decade ago - I hope you redeemed its value in priceless pictures over the years. Irrespective, its time is up.

So India Today is using my rare photo of IndiGo's first ever A320 (which I posted on their 12th anniversary) without permission, they have conveniently cropped out my watermark and have credited IndiGo instead who had only reposted my photo with full & clear credits as well as original watermark.

https://www.indiatoday.in/lifestyle/tra ... 2018-08-21 [they have now replaced the image]

I sent them the following email after a few people whatsapped me the article's link recognising my photo on the same day the article was published.

to: support@indiatoday.in
date: 21 Aug 2018, 20:47
subject: Invoice for Unauthorised Photo Usage

Hello,

I see my photo of an Indigo Airbus A320 is being illegally used on your article: https://www.indiatoday.in/lifestyle/tra ... 2018-08-21

It is incorrectly credited to "Photo: Instagram/indigo.6e"
Indigo has merely reposted my photo with full & clear credits as well as my original watermark: https://www.instagram.com/p/BmD1d7ejvhG/

India Today or your rep have illegally cropped-out my watermark and shared it on your site, on a page full of multiple ads which generates revenue for you.

I am attaching my invoice for the above unauthorised and illegal usage of my hardwork. Do please revert at your earliest convenience about when I should expect my payment.

Regards - Vishal

Sun Temple, Modhera. Ethereal architecture, even 10 Taj Mahals can't beat. Built in 1026 by Bhim I of Chaulukya Dynasty to commemorate his victory against invading Mahmud Ghazni & 20,000 soldiers. Hence; a monument of undying courage, bravery & invincibility of Sanatani Warriors.

SaiK,

What is your budget?

It is less about the camera and more about the lenses. If you're invested in a particular lens system, then stick to it. To do this right you will have to spend nearly $5K on a camera body and lenses. You need wide angle, medium telephoto and zoom. Each of those lenses are around $1000 each and then about $2000 on the body. It isn't the camera system, but the subject and if you spend more on the camera, then you won't have money to travel to where you want to go.
