We went to Balboa Park yesterday to see a show at the Old Globe. I was able to take a few shots around the park and in the botanical garden. I think the HX9V performs pretty well in Auto mode.
No pp on any images, all were resized to meet the forum limits on width and file size.
First up is me testing out the background defocus option. These were taken inside the botanical garden which had lots of shade.
First in Auto, then using the Background Defocus mode. Btw, it did a good job of representing the colors of the flower...
