Default Testing out the new P500

This is the first time I've tested out the P500 I got last week, any suggestions or tips for better pictures? These were taken at the Garden of Gods in Colorado Springs and they were not altered in any way.

It really looks like you are off to a very good beginning.

Looks like a very good start to me. The "Garden Of The Gods" looks like a neat place.

I agree with mt and jj, those are great shots. What settings did you use?

I mainly messed around between landscape and close-up. I bought a 20 dollar tripod from Amazon and it pretty much did the job. The sunset setting was pretty disappointing and auto focus at 36X is just a tiny bit slow but as long as you keep it stable it can get you some pretty clear shots.

The colors are nice also. The blues came out well in the bird and the stone has a vivid color also. Frank

I considered the P500 myself, but I got a much better deal on the HS10 and I prefer it's manual zoom. The P500 is a remarkable camera, I hope you thoroughly enjoy it.
