Default From my new E620

On a very overcast, gray day on the verge of snowing.

Congratulations on yor new camera, gjtoth.

Quite amazing pictures for your first day. Found your way around pretty fast? Beautiful colors and motives. That Bokeh on the first one is amazing!

Love the last on too. Those colors!

Thanks, Walter! Yes, I feel right at home with it. I'm really glad I made the jump. It's one heck of a camera!

Hey Hiro and Gary-

It is great to see you two really enjoying your photography. That is exactly how it should be. It is cold (relatively speaking) here in Oregon along the Coast, as I too, often shoot out the window and stay warm.

Have a great weekend.

It's 17F (wind chill 4F) right now. I wonder that's not really good to use a camera outside?

Nice shots. I would suggest bumping your ISO to get faster shutter speeds - that will help refine some of the feather detail. While IS or a tripod prevents camera shake, you still get feather movement. 1/200 at ISO 400 should give you sharper images than 1/50 at ISO 100. Also, be careful of overcropping - that cuts down on sharpness as well.

But, you're off to a fantastic start!
