Hello all. I am relatively new to photography and completely new to the FZ series. Up until now I had a Canon A200 that I used for snapshots of the kids and my wife's things for auction. After much research I decided to get the FZ15. Going from having no optical zoom at all to 12x zoom is amazing...

Anyway, I finally got my FZ15 this past week and took it for a test drive on Saturday. I would appreciate any/all feedback on what others would have done (or would do) to improve them.

Thank you!

Chris

Chris:

Welcome to the FZ world.

Yourfirst is beautiful, I would not think it needs anyimprovement. The third is good but something that I can't work-out is not quite right, could well be just me

Thank you both very much for the comments.

style="BACKGROUND-COLOR: #000000"In the first one I got lucky and a boat had just gone leaving a nice wake.

style="BACKGROUND-COLOR: #000000"In the last one, I agree that something is missing. I originally wanted to move in closer anduse the tree roots toframe a sail boat... after abouta half hour I gave up and on the sail boat and justtook the picture.A nicer sunrise would have helped too.

Thanks again!

I agree that the third image lacks a little something. I might have tried using flash to bring the roots forward as the main subject rather than have it as a sillohet (sp?)

Actually, I think the silouette is what makes a photo like this.. What is missing is the sun.. Just a few minutes too late (or early if sunrise) for the photo. If another opertunity exists, I would try this shot just before the sun completely disappears. Just my opinion of course, everyone likes different stuff.
