Default FZ40/45 - August 28th, 2011

Hi This is my first post with my first real camera. I have an older 35mm slr that was given to me as a gift but I really never knew how to properly use it, only mistakenly taking good pictures, but anyway the FZ40 is a really affordable shooter I'm really happy I purchased a week ago. I hope to share more here since this seems to be the only active Panasonic forum on the web it seems. So here goes:

Welcome to the forums Patrick, looks like you are off to a good start with the new camera. My favorites are #6 and #10. Looking forward to future posts.

Really nice shots, very good colors and clarity. #3 is nice. I would like to see you zoom in a bit more, or crop out a few birds, there are too many gulls with their head and feet chopped away I find a bit distracting. #6 would have bee great if the feet were in the shot. #10 is a really cool image.

Welcome to the forum Patrick, impressive first series

#6 is my fav.... ok, would have been nice to see the feet

More importantly good focus and color saturation
