This is a great forum! I feel like I have learned so much just by looking at all of your replies. Thanks again for taking the time to post them. I really don't know that much about cameras or picture taking. I do know that I took about 60 shots my first day out with the s500. Seems like a great little cam. It did seem to get a bit lost in my hands. I have always been into picture taking. I know that this is not the place to post what cam to get questions, but does anyone think that I would be better off with a digital slr? Maybe the canon eos digital rebel or the nikon d70? I know that they are much larger in size, but all of those feaures and lense changing possibilites seem awesome and something that I think I could grow with. 3 days left on the s500 return policy... as usual all replies are more then welcome,

Nice shot.

One thing that is hard to avoid is people walking into or out of the frame. Sometimes it's not a problem, other times it's distracting from the composition. (I took a shot recently in Windsor's "Sculpture Gardens", of a mother elephant andtwo baby elephants. Just as I took the shot, someone appeared on the walking path behind the elephant. It looked like the elephant was givingbirth to a full-grown human!)

Anyway, maybe a bit of a crop might be in order.

Oh, yeah... on your other question:
