Thanks Bernice, I think the observation of perceived under/over exposure depends on where you make most of your pics. Eileen went to Spain and took an old Zenith EM SLR and when she got back showed me the settings she'd used like about 1/500 @ f16 with 100 ASA film, I said you won't get one pic. They came back from the printers perfect, what I hadn't realised was the amount of light that penetrates the atmosphere almost vertically in summer there.

In the same way people who live say near Point Lobos can't believe that further north that setting becomes 1/50 @ F5.6 as the sun penetrates the atmosphere at an acute angle even in summer.

George Bott my first C&G tutor used to say expose for the highlights and the shadows can take care of themselves.

G'day Mick, I have taken a lot of pics of all sorts of subjects, but I'm still a chancer and still think that when I press the shutter I've created a masterpiece only to find ...........

My best wishes to you both.

Jim

Jimread,

Enjoyed looking at your shots. Would like to take a walk down that street in #1. Oh, and that big tree sure does have a lot of branches.

G'day Joe and thank you for the nice comments, I've always liked those few houses and have photographed them many times and through that got to know some of the people who live there.

Warm wishes - Jim
