A nice image -beautiful scene.

the only distraction for me is the blown highlights of the directly lit foliage

A question to those in the know - Would a bracketed shot with slightly less exposure than meteredpreserve the detail on the sunlit foliage without losing the shadow detail on the trunks ?

Thanks for sharing...

Andrew

Hi Tullio

Its a picture from May 2005 taken with my old Fuji. The bluebells arent quite ready yet this year, hopefully within the next 2 weeks. I'm not getting rid of my S2, I think my wife will be using it. I have my Nikon D50 on order now which should hopefully arrive within 2 weeks.

Ooh, so...moving to a DSLR, hey? Now, get ready to spend the "big bucks"! I have a co-worker who has a D50. Just about every month he spends hundreds of dollars on camera lens and filters. From what I have noticed, most of your pictures are not taken at the full 12x zoom the S2 is capable of, so you might be OK with the basic D50 lens for a while. I can't wait to see your postings with the new "toy"!

Hi Tullio

I'll be taking the 18-70 Nikon lens and the Sigma 70-300 so I'kll still have zoom capability, but as most of my shots are landscape I probably dont use the full zoom as much as I could. The S2 is a fantastic camera though and will still be very much part of my photographic set up.

A really nice scene Shaun. (I probably agree with Andrew about knocking the exposure back just a touch - but maybe my computer screen is too bright?)
