I haven’t bee participating at the Café much for a long time, but I could swear I remember a forum dedicated to P&S cameras, but I can’t find it, so I’ll stick these here.

I took these yesterday with a Canon G9, which I’ll take on long hikes when I don’t want to lug a ton of equipment around. I don’t like much of what I get with this camera (too used to pro bodies and good glass) I do get something once in a while.

In this one, I used the spot meter to purposely blow out the ocean in the background.

Just another sunset. This is where a good body, lens and tripod shine.

Thanks for the comments. I didn’t think of burning in those sun rays in #2, but I might have done a little of that if I thought about it.

Another vote for the second shot? Nothing for the first? Sunset shots are something I don’t normally post, cause they are in such abundance. The first shot is my favorite. Purposely blowing out the background with a P&S isn’t that hard, but not something one would normally do with a P&S. Oh well. Back to the drawing board. :frown:
