Forgive the slight blurriness, this was a handheld shot. Never again will I travel without at least a monopod

PS - I'll edit out the monorail track when I get home from work tonight.....just noticed the distracting streak at the top of the picture. Sorry.

What a beautiful water fountain, Kitster. I personally love water fountains. Too bad we don't have very many of them around here, at least not an impressive one. Considering it was hand held, I think you did an awesome job and have very steady hands. Neat Image can take care of the noise very easily!

Is that at one of the Disney parks? I don't remember seeing anything like that at Disneyland but it might be at the California Adventure park or whatever it is called.

I really like the colors in this photo. It could stand to be a bit sharper. I don't think that can be fixed in PS. Getting focus and depth of field right at night is a real challenge. Auto-focus doesn't work very well at night and manual focus at night is difficult at best. Perhaps using manual focus bracketing would be good here. Shoot several shots with different focus settings. One of them ought to be good!

Kitser,

Water fountains certainly meet our challenge. Like you I keep forgetting to have a tripod handy and I am constantly trying to find a lightpole or postin a good location to prop myself against. I find the anti-shake in my Konica-Minolta quite useful up to a point.

Nicely captured. Aloha

Another picture taken during our January trip to Epcot. We were killing time while friends rode Soarin' Over California, so I was taking pictures. I have my eye on a nice monopod for my honeymoon trip in Sept, so the blurriness should be gone for those shots.

Now if I can just teach my husband patience while I play with my D70s...:-)

Just ran the above picture thru Neat Image, and I hope this took care of some of the problems.

For not using a tripod I'd say this image worked out pretty darn good especially since it looks as though you used a slower shutter speed by the looks of the water! Good capture! The colors are awesome! :-)
