Default FZ100 sunsets

Took a stroll along the beach this evening and took a couple of hand held sunset shots along the beach. Didn't really go for much composition just wanted to try and see how this camera would perform under late evening light. Unfortunately, due to cloud, I only managed to get about 20 mins of photographs before the sun slipped behind the clouds so didn't really get that golden last minute shot I wanted. Iso 100 and used Raw/jpg setting. This camera takes better sunset than my Nikon D300 (too much blooming of the sun with the Nikon). Not to bad for a point and shoot camera at all and printed at 9"x7" can't see any noise in the photograph either. Quite pleased with this camera so far.

Wonderful sunset shots. I really like the second, but wish those balloons were not there, though.

G'day howie

Yes mate - a nice set of images and good lens work too
re #2 ... if you crop it to remove the baloons [as suggested above] it becomes a very spunky pano image

Regards, Phil

Nice shots. You will notice that you got more color as the sun dropped lower and lower toward the horizon.

Excellent shots, my fave is No.2 but I love it with the baloons, adds a different feel to it for me.
