I took this shot inside my house a few weeks ago and got 2nd place in the Panachallenge site (challenge #36 windows and balconies). Just wanted to share my excitement with all of you!

Great shot! It was with a FZ20? My FZ20 is still my husband's favorite camera.

Thank you, Mercury. Yes, it was taken with my FZ20. It's a fun camera (I won't say great because it certainly has its problems, such as too much noise at any ISO other than 80, inaccurate EVF/LCD, high battery consumption, etc.). I really like its optics (f2.8 across the entire zoom range is unmatchable) and the ability to manually adjust the preset WB (i.e. increase/decrease thesaturation for daylight/cloudy, etc.). At one point I was thinking about selling it since I also have the Sony H1 but Idecided to keep it for now or perhaps replace it with the FZ18 (if the reviews are favorable).

The f2.8 across the entire zoom range is the reason it is on of the two cameras that I usemost of the time.
