I really like this one. Did you do any post-processing on this at all? This is really an awesome picture.

Hey Peri - I forgot about that one - I'm normally in Av.
It works pretty well, I use the dial on the back to set any Ev compensation and the wheel by the shutter to flip through aperture and shutter speed combinations if I don't like what it selected. All of these settings are of course visible in the viewfinder.
If I have a specific aperture I want then I switch to Av.

I think you are going to love the 20, many people have taken great photographs with it. An SLR can be a bit daunting at first but once you get used to it, a point and shoot will be hard to use again.

Your shots are good and they will only get better. I agree with Para with teh "P" mode. It's not as restrictive as Auto but it doesn't require as much attention as Manual.

Have fun,

Dave

Thanks guys! I will definitely give "P", "AV" and "TV" a try the next time we're out with the camera.

For the pic of my fiance trying to decide what to order I think I hadthe cameraon manual but the pic's out of focus. The camera was focusing on the glass of water at the bottom of the pic. I'm glad you likethe shot because I didn't think it worked

that is what is so awesome about the picuture...its out of focus but is in focus just enough to give the effect of "zooming in". the depth and "spatiality" is incredible because the composition has all of the lines in the backgroung running back to one vanishing point. a great compostion.

very very cool.
