Hi all,

I am not a PhotoShop user though maybe someday. Right now, I use PSP8 so I experimented with Text. For the life of me, I cannot figure out how to edit the text beyond just laying it on the photo. As they say in Steve's home state, Sunny Beaches! Oh well...

This is about a 1/40 crop of original photo as I was quite far from the aviators.

Nice capture at the distance you were from.

It shows some CA though (green tinge).

They do look like they are standing on the water though.

Many thanks, vIZnquest!

Yes, I agree. There is some CA in the photo. Actually, it has gone a few rounds with PSP 8 trying to improve it.

I just really liked the two fowl and their reflections.

If anybody wanted the original JPG, I would be happy to email it to them

One thing I am learning about the FZ30 is this...if you shoot into/near the sun, CA/noise noticiably increase. This did not occur with my oly c2100uz or E20 (which unfortunately "expired" and was sold for "salvage").

When I was shooting, I also had Oly B300 attached trying to "bring in" the fowl.

With Valentines coming up, I have made a few "VD" cards with the photo! :-)

Though I love its zoom and image stabilization, I need to become more familiar with the "limitations" of the FZ30 and shoot "around them".

Hmmn.....I guess those two never learned to swim?:blah:

Backlit subjects give fits with CA, especially against a light background. I have trouble with it also with light colored subjects that are in bright sun with sun behind me. I finally got a beautiful pic of a Mockingbird....it was on an overcast day so I wasn't paying much attention to the position of thesun. Limbs that couldn't be cropped out were lousy with CA.That one will get worked over with PS someday.
