Default Last shot of the day

There was a young fawn in the yard but playing hide and seek again. Got him with a couple of shots but they were far too slow, so rather than admit to failure..! I took this out to the Olympics.

E500. with that versatile 70-300 again.

Yeh it's soft and noisy but it was fun and I've seen worse hanging on office walls...

Was that in normal mode? I tend to look down my nose at the 'scene' setting but I have to admit when I used it last week to shoot Mt Rainier at sunset the 'sunset' mode (doh) made it look much better w/o any work. Maybe I need to rethink things.

Oh, nice pic by they way.

Thanks John and Gary. Just a grab shot off the deck, quick PP in picasa, but I liked it.

It was actually in 'sport' mode, trying to track the fawn. Opens the A and give a tad more speed, and shot at 400ISO.
I've used the sunset mode at times and found it helps a pic. but if you copy what the camera does in sunset mode you have more control.

Sometimes though, I think for quick shots that the camera is quicker, and better than me, it's definately smarter..!!!!

Scouse that shot is probably better than you realize. You could make a great travel poster with a blow up of that scene
