Default Sunset with Sony Nex 5n and kit lens

Picked up a used Sony Nex 5n as a carry-around when I'm not up to lugging the 5D Mk II and lenses. For the price, a nice camera. Taken this evening here in HB. C&C welcome.

It has a pretty neat panorama feature. Just hold down the shutter and pan.

Very nice exposures. Looks like you've mastered a totally foreign camera (mirrorless, different brand, etc.) really well.

Very nicely done on both, and looks like you got a keeper.

I have seen other people's work with a NEX 5N and now yours, I can sum it up that it is an excellent camera and great for traveling because of the compact size and light weight. A good backup for the 5d2?

Yes, the compact size is quite appealing and the results are impressive. Just wish it had a viewfinder as composing with the LCD can be difficult in bright sunlight. Still hanging onto my G11 until I'm completely convinced and comfortable with the Nex 5n

Nice shots, we have been looking at the NEX cameras to go along with the DSLR. Did you do much PP to get those colors and the sharpness in the posted pictures?

Did an "auto color" in CS5 and slight sharpening is all.
