Jeddah

We'll look forward to seeing your photos from Saudi Arabia. So much in the news these days. It would be nice to see more than just those shots accompanying the headlines.

Christmas Day I took my 8800 out hunting. Stopped by a city park with a lake. It was very cold and the lake was lightly frozen over. Took a couple of shots of birds relegated to walking rather than swimming.

Here's the 2nd shot. Thought the 8800 captured the action nicely. I was about 40-50 yards from the fowl.

A few minutes later, as I was climbing the bank to return to my car, I noticed an interesting couple strolling beside the lake. My imagination took hold. Could it be a mother and daughter discussing family troubles, or sharing memories of Christmasses past?

Interesting panorama night shot. Actually you reduced it a bit too much for us to see details. Do you live outside the city, as the picture would suggest?

I tried a panorama shot of a building the other day. You may be able to see a change of color in the sky on the right panel of the picture. Not sure how to deal with that, tho I did try to match it up in Corel PhotoPaint

Walter C : To get panorama pic. are very hard. I tooke some month to get some good with the CP 995 and 8700. When use the Scene dial, go to theusermanual page 30. " White balance and exposure are fixed at values for first shot in series ". So you can see the position of your preference to start to take the pic. the camera take the firth light evaluation for the rest of the pics. Thath make the color to be the same of the rest . experiment a lot. remember... in the 8800 you can tell the camera in wath direction you like to shot. Carlitin
