I was going to spend the day catching up with housework etc. I decided that the dust had settled very comfortably so who was I to disturb its peace? The grass, if cut, will only grow again, so I could be saving time.... The washing was happy left on its on in the washing machine.... it didn't need my company ;) and as I have a new camera and the sun was shining I decided I should put it through its paces.
It's relatively compact camera as I needed less weight to carry around when I was using the large lens and the dSLR and I wanted one that I could slip into my pocket.
I needed to get to grips with the various settings, but mostly I was using Aperture Priority. I stuck to Jpeg rather than Raw as I had yet to test downloading the new make of camera.
The sun was very warm - ooooh; the sky was blue - ahhhh! the air was fresh - mmmmm - I think Spring HAS to be my favourite season.
So I stayed local and wandered around the Hampton Court area..
This picture is the only one (of two) that I've edited in anyway. I've heavily cropped this to bring out the Robin. The lens is a 20 mm so I'm rather pleased with the result. It's not really the lens for heavily cropping for wildlife!!
Time to go home, but not before I had my first ice-cream of the Spring (with a chocolate twist) sitting at the river side watching the world, boats, ducks and geese go by. Ahhhhh Bliss!!
And I'm rather pleased with the output of the camera. Need to get to grips with the settings a bit more and perhaps the exposure needs looking at, but......
Your views on picture quality would be appreciated :D
