Hi.. Those pictures are awesome. The colors are so vibrant and the pictures are sharp. What kind of settings you used ? is it in iA mode ? or Program modes? What is the color settings(contrast, sharpness, noise) .. ?

Once again most of them are great pictures and I enjoyed viewing it..

thanks for the kind comments Siva. I took over 500 pictures on the trip so don't remember the mode for each of those but for most of the day shots i used Aperture Priority with f / 2.8 or f/5.6 and for most of the night shots i used iA mode . Day shots were taken at ISO 80 and in night shots the iA mode pushed it to iso 800 most of the time. All contrast, sharpness , NR etc in my camera is set to 0 since I prefer to post process my pictures in photoshop cs4. All the pictures you see here have levels, saturation, sharpness adjusted in cs4 and all the low light shots have noise reduction using noiseware plug in. Some pictures also have Selective color adjustment.

P.S. I also have a Marumi Haze/UV filter attached all the time to the lens. Don't know if it helps the pictures but doesn't seem to degrade it.

Sharad-

Thanks for a lovely set of photos. Your strategy of using low ISO settings and using the IA Mode only at night paid off handsomely for you.

Ok. I now got it.. I was thinking they are straight from the camera. I am still waiting for a great chance to explore my FZ35. for now I am just taking Indoor pictures and some backyard photos.

- Keep it coming Sharad.... Love to see you as part of this Forum..

Thanks Sarah, Always look forward to your comments. I think I should point out that initially i was not very impressed with a the fz35 but I think it has somewhat of a learning curve and the way to take good pictures with it is to keep experimenting . Often i take the same picture in 2 or even 3 different modes to see what effect various settings have and also to hedge my bets.
It is a great camera, more so because it is not very cumbersome and you can carry it everywhere. Below is my favourite picture from the trip.

Wow, those are very nice. I have been practicing using the flash outdoors even in good daylight to highlight the people that I am taking pictures of. It actually makes a huge difference.

Thanks for sharing, I really like those images!
