Really super shots Saly...well done!

Most of these places just don't want a Pro Photog setting up shots and disrupting their venue...so if you are discreet they don't mind a Monopod that is doubling as a Walking Stick at all...and they are cheap and come in multi colors...just unscrew the compass from the top and screw on you camera...cheap and effective...

Yeah, I know..... Once I was at an art museum with a cheapie P&S and forgot to disable the flash. As soon as I fired my first shot, the docent came over and gave me a warning in front of many, many people. I was sooooooooo embarrassed!!! So, I'm sensitive about this...

You are so correct, Saly-

In photo editing, as soon as you push the post processing to nearly the maximum, it does induce more visible noise. That is why the High Sensitivity Mode might work better.

Wonderful history in this set Saly. It is hard to believe that people used to ride around in those contraptions! Cheers Lyn

Thanks lisa and banksy

stefan - Raw may give me better control of PP, but I try to minimize that. I guess I'm old fashioned, but at some point it stops feeling like photography....

ozzie - good trick, I will have to practice doing that

Saly,

in my opinion raw processing is very similar to developing negatives in the old analog world.

Cheers,

Stefan

Stefan - that's a very interesting point. And I have to admit I don't know much about processing Raw images. Is that very different from manipulating a JPG file? And yes, I do remember processing B&W film in my photography class, many many years ago...

saly, I like the shots - indoors can be tricky with these cameras but you did well keeping it still and getting some very nice photos.
