Default 3 Macros

Got a chance to get into the garden this morning to take some photos. Selected three for comment. As you can see it is very frosty here. How can i improve on them and in P mode can i change shutterspeed or f-stop and if so how?
No altering just cropped for upload size
Thanks in advance.

Brrr! Frosty here today also. Some nice detail in #2 & #3. I have also been trying to photograph a pink cyclamen - it's indoors in a pot thank goodness - & I just cannot get a decent focus on it! I always find bright colours like pink or yellow really difficult to manage.

I discovered shift options in P mode but will leave someone more savvy to explain how to do it as I found the instruction manual very confusing so will not refer you to the page.

Thanks Brownie, i took the cyclamen outside to photograph it. Shift options would be good to know as i wasn't happy with a lot of what i took this morning and wanted to alter the appature and or shutterspeed but didn't know how to in P mode. I agree the manuel is confussing for newbies i think.

Just had a play to remind myself how to do it. OK, here goes . . . .
Set to P mode
Half press the shutter & hold for a few seconds
You will see the f-stop & speed appear in white letters bottom of LCD with a P plus diagonal arrow to the left of them
When you release the shutter a yellow box will appear round them & the P will turn yellow
Then you just wiggle the joystick up or down & you will see the numbers change
I think it holds your selection until you take a picture, then has to be started from scratch again, but don't quote me on that

Nice shots all the same, and in this weather I am surprised you can hold the camera steady....

Very nice shots Eysha...use the "Rule of Thirds" when cropping (I had to learn this also)...the Pink Flower can be sprayed with a regular spray bottle (You can buy them at the market very cheap) and water to give it some pop and catch some of the droplets with the sunlight sparkling in them...you did a very good job!!!...this is just some creative suggestions thats all!!!...can't wait to see more from you...
