Very nice! You might want to consider a UV haze filter. It serves a two fold purpose. First it protects the lens, second it helps cut out the haze that causes lost background detail in the distance in many landscapes. They're cheap. Many folks - including myself, just leave them on at all times.

I find the picture looking great as it is. It is a good idea to protect the lens like NickTrop mentioned but I for one cannot make any recommendation as to what to use since I do not have and FZ3 nor seen much posted about them to be of any help.

Tiffen, Hoya, or Quantaray. There's little varience in quality for this type of filter. Here's a link for one. Sometimes it's worthwhile to get a Polarizer, UV Haze, and Skylight filter in a 3 set. I got a used set of Tiffens for 10 bucks on eBay (but I got lucky...) Just make sure it has a 55mm thread. You put it on the barrel adapeter that came with the camera.

You look like you might have a stuck pixel. It's the white dot in the sky, directly above the first boat on the left, right above the cloud, about 1/3 down from the top of the picture.

Sometimes they only show up once in a while in a picture, other times they remain stuck and you have to take your camera back for repair. Thought I might point it out...something to keep your eye on.

Nick
