I tried again....this time with dogwood as well as a tree i'm not sure the name of. notice the tiny fly in the 3rd picture.
Flew said:Lovely Leigh. I really like the 2nd and 4th ones. They just pop from the background. You know that getting good background isolation is much harder with a small sensor cam like the 8800, right? (The DOF is much larger with that configuration). I had a Sony DSC-828 (very similar to the 8800) before I got my D70, and I was amazed at the difference in the bokeh.
You need to talk the big boy into getting you a DSLR to go with the Coolpix. :lol: 8)
Harry S. said:Nice images, Leigh, especially taking into account (as Frank already pointed out) that it's not so easy to isolate subjects with the small sensor of a coolpix.
Leigh said:Harry S. said:It's definitely a fun camera to play around with.
A friend of mine has the 8800 and recently showed me some pics he made in China. I did not know about the pano-function, which I marvelled at when he explained it to me. And the panos he had made in China (printed on the plotter in his office) were absolutely stunning.
Thanks for the comments. I'm having so much fun with this little cameraPanos Kazanelis said:Leigh, excellent photos, especially the last one :!:
yep, i do a bit. he works so much,but when i see him in the cafe, i sometimes send him a PM. This cafe idea he and Flew cooked up is great. I enjoy talking w/everyone here...such a diverse set of people from all over. I look forward to getting to know you all better!Panos Kazanelis said:Just a question, do you use the Cafe to talk with Patrick :lol:
