Really enjoyed looking at all the photo's.  Can't look at yours too long David S - heights are not my forte - my hands started sweating   Duck photo however is lovely.

Lovely to see jays Charlie.  Don't get them up here.  Seascapes are always a pleasure to see Dove..  Singy - you have been working very hard by the looks of it.

Percy - your photos with the reflections are so atmospheric - beautiful

Sunset last night was great where you are DavidK

Mid- Saffs, Lesley.

Due to the recent lovely weather & accompanying sunsets, I've done a little experimenting.

I've found that using a camera with automatic settings has its drawbacks as the conditions throw the camera's settings into confusion.

My best results were obtained by underexposing. Set your camera to 'Program' mode (P on the dial) and use 'exposure compensation' facility....this will darken foreground areas.

Oh David, you're spoiling Lily and I with sunset pics, they are our favourites.  Your last two are beautiful.

I'm hoping to get some good ones in Crete when we go

Thanks, OL...I was a bit chuffed with the last one, as I had used the system described  earlier. I'm also fortunate to be living in an area that lends itself to nice sunsets/sunrises.

Hope you have a nice time in daughter & SiL  holiday most years in Greece - they love it!  

PS. This year they went to Skiathos, for about the 10th time.

We've been to Corfu and Kos, I think I posted a sunset in Kos somewhere on this thread, I love the Greek Islands and can't wait to go to Crete

Beautiful David, as OL, says thank you, sunsets are my favourite. 

Went to Greece last year, great holiday.
