hi guys,
I took some photos during this xmas holiday.
there are four photos which I like.
please give me some comments.

PS
I have a question. When I used 12X optical zoom, the photo seems a little bit over expose ( bright??). Is it normal?

thanks

Yes the brightness is normal for the most part. It is usual practice in good lighting to use -1/3 EV. Correct me if I am wrong anyone. I use it and find that it does make a bit of a difference. Also, using mode 2 for OIS and a tripod with a timer gets that sharp shot that you are after. Handheld at 12X does a pretty good job but is susceptible to some motion blur if you are not stabilized on something. Picture adj. also to low on all of the sharpeness, contrast and saturation can help in getting a good shot. I have in my own use found that using the high settings do not get the kind of pictures I am after.

Oh by the way, your pictures look great. The third shot is my favorite.

For my own part I have found that spot metering is very sensitive anyway, but even more so at 12x zoom. I use it almost exclusively. So, you might try putting the spot meter on several different spots in your composition and half press the shutter button to see if you like the result. I sometimes spot meter on a darker or lighter object to get a different look to the exposure. It's my non-patented "farting around metering system" Seems to get the job done.:roll:

BTW, I really like the habor shot. Great colors.
