You are using a pretty high shutter speed here for a relatively immobile subject--did you WANT a maximum-large f/stop? As always, a beautiful picture!--I would praise them all individually, but you might find me tedious: I am intentionally restraining myself.

That's life with a point and shoot. I'm still trying to decide if I like them or not. The weather was very odd. I should have had plenty of light but storms rolled in and at 5 p.m. it looked more like 8:30 p.m. Most of the photos looked like black blobs and I had to do a total re-adjust with photoshop of the light. It was actually raining when I shot the last few.

I beg your pardon: I too have occasionally been quite frustrated when using the Olympus 770SW, which is an underwater-capable point-and-shoot. It takes a whole lot more thought to outwit a point-and-shoot, as they are real know-it-alls. Glad you have so much familiarity with Photoshop! For a few of my pictures with an adjustable camera under very similarly annoying meteorological conditions (limited also by the fact that my lens will only open up to f/5.6), see essentially all my photographs just posted from King and Queen County . . . .

I have a Samsung Pza SH1t, that you wouldn't wish on anybody.

Yet you have taught us to respect it: and it will grow blossoms on crepe myrtles for you . . . .
