Welcome aboard!

Oh more pics from india, I love it. I think you have a good start with your new camera. Like them all, my faves are #4 and #8.

Welcome. Very nice first set of shots. Only thing I might add is I think #2, 8 and 10 might be slightly overexposed. You might try adjusting the ev down a little or play around with the auto bracket exposure or the AE lock. You might be able to bring out a little more detail on the subjects. Just my opinion. Again, very nice.

These are real good for your first shots. What setting (mode) are you shooting in? I recommend starting in iA until you become familiar with the camera, then move on to P mode. Being able to adjust ISO, metering and focus spots will greatly improve your images.

Really nice detail on the first pigeon.

Thanks Saly,

I have been using P mode mostly as it gives some control along with recommended settings. But yes iA also should be good for inital days. I will try it for some more pics and share my experience.
Its great to get comments from many experienced users. Thanks everyone

Omzworld-

Welcome to our part of the Forum. We are delighted to have you join us. It appears that you are off to a rather good start, as JJ mention 2, 8, and 10's over exposure is easily solved with the us of some minus Exposure Compensation. You are doing well in the "P" mode, in my opinion that is much better and far more controllable than the "IA" mode.

Hi Aomzworld and welcome to the forum. You are off to a fine start with the FZ35, really well done. My comments are the same as the others, in that some of the shots are a bit over exposed. The advice above will help solve the problem, and one simple trick to remember - try not to go out shooting in the bright midday sun. Its the worst time as I have found out. Look forward to seeing more posts from you.
