Since buying my FZ-50 I have stayed with using P mode or the in camera programed modes like action, scenery, etc. But decided to try and get a little better with it and used the S mode. It was a very dark and dreary day so im not surehow good I did.

those are all very nice , I especially liked the one of the swan in front of the tree (interesting composition)

Nice series. Really clear shots. All the whites are handled nicely.

Another interesting series!!!! The one of the all the pigeons is intersting and I also like the one of the swan in front of the tree...might be neat if you cropped it in a little more to see what it might look like....our temperature are -12C right now!!!

Thanks for all the nice comments.

How did you get the swans to pose in the same position for you. Terrific effort to capture them that way. I quite liked the heron in shot 4, but It might have been better balanced with all the shhadow in shot.

The S mode seems to have worked well for you. I have been doing a photography class recently to improve my skills. The photos I posted of Sunday in the city were part of the shoot for that class. The instructor in the class highly recommended that we stick to A mode. His rationale was that in A mode you get to choose both aperture and shutter speed as you widen aperture you increase shutter speed and vice verca. Whilst S mode does the same, he advised against S because you can more easily dial in a shutter speed that gives incorrect exposure than you can dial in an incorrect aperture value.

These swans are not scared of people at all. In fact i have seen them get a little testy when people get a little close. But I stayed there for a while until they were comfortable with me. The eventually the let me sit righ next to them within a foot. And another advantage of the superzoom is there is no shutter noise. Everytime somebody would come around with a DSRL they would get a tad restless and sometimes all the pigeons would go flying all at once from the noise.

Thanks for that I think on my next outing I will the A mode.

I like the black bird with the red bill. I think it is a goose. They are all fine though. Although I did not learn it in a photography class, I am becoming a fan of A mode myself. A few times in S mode or manual I had the shutter speed too high for conditions and ruined a good shot. I think there is more leeway in A.

It is actually a black swan. We don't have many white ones down here but plenty of the back type.
