Hi all,

Three month ago I decide to replace my old (ok, not so old...) Ixus v2 by abettercamera with good zooooom. With the help ofall ppl here posting FZ picsI found that the FZ5 was made for me (not without hesitating with z20 of course...:G).

So here I'm with my new toy and I'm very, very glad of it... (this zoom and this lenseare just fantastic )...

I was in Alsace in France this week-end so I wanted, my turn, share my pics...hope you will enjoy. Please don't hesitate to comment...I'm a complete newbie and want to progress, my pics are sometimes more exposed that I wanted and dealing with Shadows/bright sun is not easy...

Please excuse my english...it's not my mother tongue.



THANKS YOU ALL

Beautiful shots, Gonzo! Particularly the first. Excellent focus on the flowers and the choice of background makes them glowwith life. Looks like you found your camera! Welcome to the forum. Looking forward to some more terrificposts from Alsace. How old are thosefantastic houses? That looks like a watercolorist's and/or photographer's paradice.

Great shots all, no1 is well done.... focus on the flowers distant buildings soft focus.... the window ledge at the bottom forms a base.

To handle contrasty light set EV to -1/3 to as much as -2/3 as a default and if you use average metering highlights will be true and the overall picture richer, there will we less shadow detail but allow for this when composing ie avoid large deep shadow areas if possible, also you can open shadows up it Photoshop or similar ACDSEE picasa (free from google and works well)

I really like no3...why did you crop it so much?
Were the birds in the centre or right....right is better I feel as it adds movement and direction to the picture...
