Nice picture. That is so sharp you could cut yourself on it!

Jelpee,

great angle, great dof, and very sharp. Like the ocean in the back ground.

So you would not recommend Sri Lanka in Dec?

Ordo: Thanks! I purchased the S90 for this trip and was not dissapointed at all. I took about half my images with the S90 and the rest with a Pentax K10D.

Thanks ST: The S90 costs a bit more than your average P&S, but IQ is superior. This image was only given some minor tone adjustments in PSE8...no USM applied.

Re. visiting SL in December, I am told that the north eastern side is subject to the monsoun rains. If you travel in December, you want to be on the south west coast where the waters will be calmer and the climate drier. However, the SW coast is highly commercialized (i.e rows of beach hotels & resorts). I like the isolation of the NE coast. On the other hand, the SW coast is apparently good for snorkelling and diving.
