Found this place while doing a search for reviews on the S2 a few weeks ago. I purchased the S2 this week and finally got to take it out and play with it. Mainly purchased it for shooting my brother's wedding in March and a summer trip to Ireland. Here is an out of the box shot:

The metering looks perfect on the snow scene with the house

I suppose a bit of an intro is in order. I am certainly a novice when it comes to photography. I took a course a few years ago and then did three years of film school (but pretty much flunked the techy stuff...I was more interesting in writing and directing). Metering and such was something I hated. I hated the light meter they made us purchase. I very much just love going out there and seeing what comes of whatever.

So, when I started looking for a digi cam I wanted something with a lot of features and something that had modes that let the cam do the work. However, I did want to start learning basics and thus I also wanted something that let me play around manually. So, the S2 was a good choice, it would appear.

So, with that said, the mentioned pic was taken simply with the S2's Snow Mode on.

More commentary is welcome as, really, these are my first digital photos.As well as suggestions. I am finding a blue tint around the edges of some of the pics. Any way of getting rid of that during shooting?


Here is another shot I took playing around with a feature I am sure I will enjoy: Color Accent:

I am just noticing now some yellow spots as well in the snow (no, not that). Any idea what caused this. Some spots in the white of clouds as well. Any ideas?
