Default first pics, FZ35

Hello there. Here's my first pics on the Panasonic FZ35. Only the one of my dog is iAuto, on the rest I'm playing around with the Program functions and seeing what works. I'm trying to figure out macro, experimenting with exposure compensation, etc. I didn't make changes to any of the pics with the exception of cropping in the photo of the bee. Comments appreciated.

LEK, they are excellent. I think your dog likes to have his picture taken. He's got a good smile.

Thanks, I'm amazed at how much improvement I can get just using the histogram and the ev compensation. Still working on Macro, that's a whole new world to me. Yes, my dog has a great smile but it could be the treat I was dangling for her that got her so focused.

Okay good, so the sharpness, image quality, etc is about what I should be getting from the FZ35? I have no complaints but want to make sure I'm getting reasonable performance from the camera(and from me) for my level of inexperience.

The squirrel is very nice, I tried to get a photo taken of one before, but I ended up with an empty tree

Nicely done, Loren-

With the exception of the first photo of the squirrel which needs a white balance correction, they all look very good indeed.

Thanks Sarah. White balance correction, is there a way I would be able to tell that before taking the picture(like I can tell exposure problems though the histogram)? How would I have corrected it in that picture? My beginning photography workshops are coming up in a month, hope that helps alot.

Thanks in advance
