Default Penrhyn Castle Railway Museum.

Took my FZ-150 down to see some "chuffers" on Saturday afternoon...

Billy... happy to share them...
As I went to the castle- I realised I was low on battery power(what a wally...) so all were shot in iA,and no flash...!

So would the pictures (excellent, by the way! I'm not envious of course!) have been much better on the settings (Manual?) that you might have used?

Micawber... to be honest,I might have switched to Aperture priority for the close ups to control depth of field- but the iA works very well and instinctively knows what I'm up to,so I probably wouldn't have gained anything anyway...
I may have kept the iso lower also- but again,I might have been pushing the boundaries of the stabiliser.... so perhaps the iA was the way to go here regardless.
Other than pic 2 I wouldn't have used the flash anyway..!

jj- it is indeed a fascinating place- with MUCH more than just a few "Chuffers" (though I do love steam engines...), with an art gallery,a doll museum and a spectacular garden full of all sorts of plants and bugs/butterflies.dragonflies..etc...
Here's a pic of the strange collection of dolls... before I ran out of battery power...oops..!

The low-light performance of the camera is pretty amazing. Some shots almost look HDR.

Thanks saly.... a few shadow/highlight/levels adjustments and colour tweaks here...and the jpeg's allow quite a large window of adjustment with little detriment to the overall IQ... but alas, no HDR's...!

Simon, I can't get over the "texture" of the photos, as in #1! Really beautiful!

I really love #4 also; thanks so much for sharing them with us!
