In this picture, the width is around 11500 feet.
In the first plan you see the "Formica Leo". Its width is around 330 feet.
Hope my english is enough to be understood...
Do you have an idea about that blue light?

An other picture that i'm proud because taken at 2cm...

The blue light is a white balance issue- can be slightly confusing for a camera with strong contrast images such as yours with a bright sky and dark foreground.
Nothing that a bit of post processing wouldn't cure..

Woow! The result is impressive! So much more realistic!
Could I have this kind of result using "the gimp"?

Ok, I'm able to correct this blue light.
Thank-you for your help!

Here is a picture with a "miniature" effect. And with blue light correction.

Another nice perspective...
I used Photoshop CS on the other image.
I dropped the blue channel right down,used a bit of selective burning to bring out more detail on the distant mountain,burned the sky down a bit and boosted the red channel up..

Default New SX40 Owner

Hi I'm a new owner since Sat. March 3rd 2012. I have been researching cameras
for about a year. After seeing photos from the members of this forum, I decided to go with the SX40. I'm so glad I did. I'm including a photo from yesterday. It is straight from the camera with no post editing.

Default What is the sharpest aperture on the sx40?

I would like to know what aperture seems to be the sharpest on the SX40?
I it f4.0 or f5.8 or something else?

Given the size of sensor/aperture combo,the aperture used won't make a huge difference to sharpness- though I suspect it may be at its sharpest in the range you suggest...
