Can't tell what it is, BB....apart from a tree in a pot, of course.

I'm afraid I only take pics on my phone. I was really pleased with this one taken earlier in the year

Sorry, only just spotted this, Ann....... (Sundays are always a bit hectic here). Yes, I can see this view with milky water for effect.

Btw, not sure if you spotted it, I gave a brief outline of what our club is about earlier

Sorry the above message is all in one block. Not sure if others have this problem, but often I can't get the cursor to work outside of the quote box.

i also found a camera club not so far from me they meet on Wednesdays Sep to April so i might go along for a week or two and see how i get on


I do hope you do this, Ann......I'm sure you'll get a lot of enjoyment from it.

Your local club seems to operate much as mine does i.e. Sep to April.

Ours has about 100+ members at present, and seems to expand by between 2 & 4 members each week. Anyone can visit free for 2 sessions to see if they like it, then expected to join or otherwise.

We meet once a week (Mondays 7.30pm/10pm), activities are varied, including competition nights (monthly), speakers nights and group sessions. For the latter we split into various groups of about 10 members to learn about techniques involved with macro photography, landscapes, portraits and so on......next week I have two sessions, portraits & filters.

There are also outside activities……earlier this month a visit was arranged to visit a bird of prey sanctuary, which (although I didn’t attend) understand offered the opportunity to take some great bird action shots…..all with assistance of course.  

Perhaps what may interest you, are other group nights where members bring in their own cameras and all the settings are gone into in depth.

Little-ann, I did some experimentation with posting photos to the forum and found that it's the file size which makes the most difference.  If you have a PC, download and install the free "Irfanview" program and load your photos into it.  Use File, Save As and choose Save as type JPG.  You'll see a JPEG/GIF save options screen - move the slider to 75 then click Save on the main window.  The applies just the right amount of file compression to allow full size photos to be posted without noticeably affecting viewing quality.  The original (as saved by the camera) for the photo below was about 1500kb and wouldn't post in a way that could be clicked and the full size seen.  After running it through Irfanview, it is about 300kB.  Edit: I forgot that I also resized to 1920x1080!

 Taken with a Canon 350D, 1s exposure, ISO800, 18-55mm lens @55mm.

 

Really nice pic, Bob......with that exposure, I expect you used a tripod too.

I am going to South Africa soon to go on a safari and see some of the gardens. I need to replace my very old not so good camera and would like to buy a good compact. I would welcome advice as to what is best.

 

Crikey, punkdoc.....I've been pondering this for ages and finally decided today.

I would look at my post above + Canon PowerShot SX50 HS + Sony Cyber-Shot HX300.....all were on my short list.
