Splendid sunset on this lake. Cheer. David.

Many thanks, David! I had just bought my new camera & was trying it out, so I was delighted to see this view emerging through the mist at 4pm on a late December evening. I love your photos - just had time to look through the Texture series. Thanks again for your kind comment, Sarah

What a beautiful scenery!

Many thanks, wx! I was very pleased at how this turned out. It is a delightful spot on a summer's day, too, with students sitting out having lunch on the boating lake steps. I have to say that i prefer it moody & atmospheric like this, though! Thanks again, Sarah

I like the monochrome look of this photo. It almost looks like an painting. It makes me feel very relaxed and at ease.

Sarah Graham on October 12, 2007

Thanks very much, Larry! I can promise you that the colour is completely untouched. It was a magical evening! Thanks again, Sarah

Hi Sarah, Happy New Year,

I used to play in and around this lake as a child!

Your photo is excellent.

I am currently use a Sony Digital Compact (DSC-T1)and realised it's limitations some time ago. Your photo has almost convinced me to go and by a 35mm Digital! Must go and look around the sales whilst they're still on! Have a great 2009..............

Sarah Graham on January 16, 2009

You're very kind, Raysalaugh, thanks very much!

This photo, though, is taken with a compact - a Panasonic DMC-LX2. It is absolutely brilliant - so many features in such a compact body, & with wide-angle lens, too - but I bought it over 2 yaers ago & I'd bet there are better compacts out there now.

I got fed up of the shutter lag, though, & it wasn't good at taking photos of kids indoors - the main focus of my photography since the birth of my son - & wanted a DSLR for litle money, so my newer photos are with a Nikon D40. Fewer MPs than this Panasonic (6, don't tell anyone), but I infinitely prefer the results, especially with flash or in low light.

It's all a question of which trade-offs you're prepared to make. Now when I handle this Panasonic I marvel at its small size & relative power - but I'd almost always rather take my Nikon in a relatively bulky case & just put up with it being bigger.

Let me know what you decide - & Hapy New(ish) 2009 to you, too!

All best wishes,

All the best from Scotland, Maciej
