Default FZ-35 Walk in the park today

Finally! Some sun, and a personal opportunity to spend time outside with the FZ35. A local park has some new construction, and lots of established facilities. I just walked around, looking for some interesting things, so there is a wide variety of content. I saw no wildlife (did get some shots early this morning of wild turkey in the backyard, but I am sure I can get better ones for posting another time).

Here are a few. A larger group (from which these were picked) is here:

A couple of more (it is great to finally have a large group from which to choose!). Go to the link given above for a set of 36 images.

Thanks!

Some very nice shots with very good compositions, once again proving that a quality camera in the hands on a good photographer can produce outstanding images! Might I suggest trying B&W on a couple like the pipes, culvert pipe and the 2nd stump shot? B&W can add a lot of drama to some still life shots.

I've got a birthday coming up and have placed my request for the FZ-35 with my wife and kids. Only time will tell if they follow through!!

Roger, hope you don't mind me playing around a bit with these great shots of yours. As I mentioned B&W can add some drama to certain stills. I did a little background defocus magic on the pipes shot to try and make them the focal point. Picture #3 is one of mine that I took with an old 5mp Canon A95 a few years back just for comparison.

All the best,
L'duck <><

locoduck, thanks for those presentations. Yes, B&W does work very well. Those shots primarily characterized by shapes or textures rely only on light/dark to make them work. B&W is only about light/dark.

Thanks for your interest and ideas.

Roger53,

Nice. Like the textures on top of the tree trunk. Enjoyed viewing your Picasa gallery.
