I got to admit that today's pictures I took have been much better than the ones I took the other day. I might have selected the wrong options that gave me bad pictures the other day. I'm still playing around with the camera. It's actually not that bad as I had expected. The verdict, though, is still up in the air.



Sample1 (the blue looks too strong; what do I need to do to make it look natural?)

Sample2 (the top portion of the flower looks too bright)

You may want to try the 'foliage' scene mode and see if it helps. This may help reduce the glare on the upper leaves. It looks like there was a slight shadow cast on the flower too. Try exposing (shutter release half-way down) on a nearby 'brighter' area of the shot if you can. Then move the camera back in and frame the shot. In this case the cameras is trying to properly expose both a bright area(upper leaves), and a darker surrounding area, and consequently not getting either exactly correct (the bain of auto cameras).

Hi,
I took this shot using foliage mode with my SD500 and a few more under macro or digital macro, most of it came out very nicely. Try out using all methods and you will love the SD500.
Cheers,

WOW, beautiful shots! I want my shots to look like yours! What settings did you use to shoot the second one? How was the lighting? Correct me if I'm wrong, butwon't using the digital mode degrade the quality of the picture?

Thanks for sharing.

Hi,
I took so many shots, can't rememeber which mode I am using but I am very sure, no flash involved, just the normal sunlight, not to overexpose.
I like shooting under manual using macro mode minus the flash, setting to auto.
Glad you like it, enclosed another shot.
