Wow! Stunning! Congratulations!
I'm curious why you use spot metering mode and always negative exposure bias... does it works better for this kind of picture? i've never used the spot metering. It's hard to choose a favorite, but the #7 sharpness is really impressive.
Keep up the good work.
(btw: did you receive my email?)

catalex54,

Great City shots. I always interested in to take a tour to Venice. Especially in summer evening touring with boat around city taking the pics. May be one of these days!!!

P.S. No.6 & 8 would be the first one I'd like to take pic at night time with lights.

Jeff:rolle yes:

Thanks Electrolyte and Jeff for the appreciation!!
@ Electrolyte: I prefer a little underexpose always, because the FZ45 tend to overexpose, and for the spot-metering is a my bad habit (I have posted now to your email )

@Jeff: you are welcome in Venice, an the evening tour is very evocative

Wow.. stunning.. I've always wanted to tour Italy. Venice being one of the cities... hmmmmmm mom wants to know what I want for my B-day in two weeks Trip to Italy.. lol.. can't afford the time off tho right now. Not to mention I'd need my passport.

I love number #2 and would love to see some night shots... I bet it would look even more stunning.

Beautiful images of a beautiful city. You are very lucky to have lived in such a place.

If I had to be picky, some of the shot look slightly over-exposed (IMHO). #13, 14 and 15 look perfect though, maybe it was the weather.

Thanks for the appreciation and the kind words JJ, Beli and Saly
@Saly: yes i know that some shots came overexposed a little, but the weather was mischievous

Well... which one is overexposed? They seems perfectly exposed to me. Some of them has some parts overexposed, but i think it's intentional, otherwise the subject would be underexposed. But i'm not certain, so, which ones are not perfect?
Thanks
