River walk FZ45
Would welcome any comments people have on whether these look clear enough etc. Mostly trying out zoom and macro (failing miserably at the latter - I need to read up more on it as I struggled to get it to focus). I'm still debating whether to switch to the FZ38, as its slightly lighter and people say its more beginner friendly - I hadn't really appreciated what a big jump up from a basic compact these are! I also find it difficult the tell using the EVF whether something is in focus or not, even though I've set it ok - the playback often seems to look out of focus but the photo on the computer is fine.



4) Slightly over exposed?


6) On this one, the person looks to me a bit washed out - not sure why though.

7) Not the best composition, but was just so pleased to have got the wretched thing after it spent ages zooming away just as I clicked!

Those are great shots! And to shoot a flying dragonfly - I'm still trying!

Nice Photos, thanks for sharing.

Sometimes you include too much in the photo, as in #1 and #5. In #7 it is understandable. Photo #6 is a bit over exposed. A bit of Exposure Compensation would have solved that problem.

All are sharp and fairly detailed.

Thanks for the feedback :) I'm not quite sure what you mean though - could you explain a bit more? Do you mean I should have zoomed in a bit more?

In photos #1 and #5 you could have zoomed in more closely on the main subject. In photo#6 there is too much light, you could have used Exposure Compensation to darken the photo, thus making in more complimentary to your wife or girl friend.

Ah I see, thanks. Yeah, on #5 unfortunately that was full zoom on the 24, but I guess I could try cropping it? I'll remember on #6 next time to change it - didn't really think about the lighting issue as it was on IA, but given where the sun was can't really blame the camera! The picture is of my mother :)
