I took this with a Pentax Optio (inexpensive 3meg camera).

The shot is right out of the camera. No color adjustments were made.

Comments appreciated!

Looks a little soft, but not out of character for the overall mood. Very peaceful looking. The colors go well with this subject, IMHO. Thanks...best regards,

Thanks, KennethD,

I didn't alter the colors, they are straight out of the camera.

I think the shot is a little soft because of the low light situation. The camera chose 1/4 second shutter speed at F2.9 (wide open).

I think you're right,the softnessinadvertently worked to affirm the mood.

Thanks again, Terry

Here's another shot, taken the same evening, standing on the bridge taking a shot looking north east.

You know...I was wondering about the colors in the first one, and really couldn't make up my mind but in the end thought it was probably software. But just goes to show you....no wonder you posted that one. Second one...almost never catch really still water where I am, (as you know we nearly always catch a breeze from somewhere) so I looked at this one for a bit. Available light again most likely acounts for the softness, which makes this type more appealing. Very nice...I'd have trouble holding real still for 1/4 second, best regards,

Here another picture of the same bay, same evening, from the other side of the bridge.

At this point, the light is so low that my little pentax optio (my shirtpocket camera) is really starting to show noise.

The poor little camera is struggling to get enough light. It picked 1/6th of a second shutter speed and a wide open (F2.9) aperture.

If I would have had my Canon 20D with me, and a tripod, I could have done this scene more justice.
