Thanks walter. I did do some post processing on both shots to fix contrast and color to my liking. The water splashing could use re-touching to remove the scratches from the bowl. But hey I was playing....I like your bird shot too and agree about your statement concerning a camera for every occasion. The 8800 really is my first manual/auto camera in quite some time. I use to be a Nikon FE 35mm guy with several fixed focal length zooms. I then sold all my gear and went toseveral Canon Elphs which take great pics. I'll try to post several more shots when time permits.

Trader,

Nice photos. The critters are not ducks...they're Mute Swans.

Hi,

I just read this message on Dpreview. Someone posted their first attempt a action shots there. I think they are pretty good.

Thanks. I checked out the thread. As he mentioned, using the 8800 for action photography takes some learning, trial-and-error, anticipation, etc. But, it can be done. As with most other digicams, we just can't expect the faster shutter release times of a DSLR.
