I have been viewing this forum for about 3 months now and really enjoy all the photos and comments. I finally got my FZ15 and took a few pictures. I thought I would get started participating in the forum by posting one of the pictures for comments and suggestions. I have a thick skin and want to learn so feel free to comment. The camera took the picture, I just pushed the button(all auto). And, no I was not looking for my golf ball in the brush. It was already in the lake.

Not an expert, but when it looks like you can walk into the picture. Great pic. Golf anyone?

Welcome tcook,

Great picture. I like the way you framed the course through the trees. What metering setting were you using?
I have found that the spot metering setting works well when you have high contrast objects in the same frame. You can spot meter on a bright object to bring the exposure down a bit or spot on a dark object to bring it up. You (the camera) did a pretty good job with exposure. Next time try spotting on different surfaces and then half press the shutter button to lock in the setting then swing back to the framing you like and finish the shot by pressing the shutter button all the way. You can get some interesting exposures that way.
Anyway, nice to have you on board the keep up the good work.

Welcome tcook. Nice shot of a lovely place. That's usually the view I have when I'm golfing-from the bushes. I'm a member of the Fairways Preservation Society. Never hit one in my life. :-)Where's this course located? Looks sooo good after pining away the winter. I'm an avid golfer-100 rounds a year usually. Cheers.....thekman.

Hi TCook!

I am fairly new here too (Pana forum). Like you, up until recently, I have been more of a 'viewer' than a 'participant'. IMO there is no question that you have tapped intoone of the BEST camera forumsgoing (Steve's Digicams - Panasonic Forum).

A goodexample would beSmac's first post (above). He offershelpfulsuggestions, with a friendly approach. For the most part, a 'thick skin' isn't required here. This is generally avery positive environment.

Thanks for posting your photo.I'm not a golfer, but as Hoov suggests, I'd like to; "walk into thepicture".

Please post more of your pics!

Dean
