I was doing some cleaning today, and in the midst of it, I decided to take a coffee break. Two of my cats decided my box of odds and ends I gathered would make a good bed.



I'm still practicing with my Z712, so I took these shots. I need some instruction as to what went wrong with the second shot.



Here's the first one. Post-processed using PSP's One Touch Photo Fix.

Here's the original of the first photo. Just cropped out some background, and resized.

And the last one. I don't think this one turned out too bad.

Lana, I may have some insight into what happened to your picture(cute, by the way). On the first pic, your white balance was set to tungsten, and the flash fired. On the last one, white balance was set to auto, and the flash fired. So the only difference between the two shots is the white balance setting.

In thousands of shots on my Z712, and now my Z1012, I have hardly ever needed to move from Automatic White Balance. Occasionally, I've experimented, and made it worse every time. Even when photographing documents under a fluorescent tube!

Thanks, Alan. I'm going to be doing a lot of experimenting while I'm learning this camera. When it's freezing outside, there's not much else to do.
