Nice shot of Meg, Ann...thank you.

 Having received my first poinsettia, I've taken the above with the aforementioned 'Adv,' setting.

 I'm jealous, Anne....... the Panasonic Lumix is a brilliant camera and Leica lens is unbeatable.

 Just playing around with the Adv. settings on my camera. Set the camera to take a b&w pic wiv just greens allowed......gives the general idea.

Hi, Lorna.....pleased you popped in, I had missed your input.

Hosta. hope you're having fun with your new camera.....I did magnify one of your zoom shots and the detail was amazingly good.

No shame in getting used to a camera using 'auto', but (long term) it would be a shame to deprive yourself of the potential of your camera.

 Nah! It would have looked like this in monochrome.

Ok, Fairygirl.....the general idea is that you can take pictures in monochrome with just pres-selected colours chosen i.e. maybe a field of pumpkins with the camera instructed to highlight orange......I posted one here where I took a pic of a poinsettia with the colour red selected to highlight leaves, etc.

1) set the dial to 'Adv.'

2) click menu

3)  see 'Adv. MODE'

4) click right pointed arrow

5) from the list of colours click the down arrow to choose one of the optional  (probably) colours or other special effects.

Just play around with these settings and have fun.

Fairygirl - Not sure if you know, but there will probably a neat little feature on your camera called 'Advanced filter', indicated by 'Adv.' on the settings wheel, on the top of your camera.....I'll go further into it, if you wish.

Fairygirl - I have to say that Fuji make excellent cameras and the the one you have is no exception.

I have a Fuji HS50 EXR bridge camera with a 24-1000mm 42x zoom lens and I wouldn't like to be without it. I think I paid just under £400 for it a couple of years ago, but as is the way with technology, you could probably get it for half that price now.

I also have a Pentax K50 DSLR.....another excellent camera, with the flexibility of being able to swap lenses - I have just 4. www.amateurphotographer.co.uk/reviews/dslrs/pentax-k-50-review

And (just for the record) a Nikon Coolpix L27 for my top pocket...that's my sum total.

All a bit academic now, but I feel neither Katie or Anita stood much of a chance in the final...having said that, I think Katie danced better in the dance-off and it was thus fair she went through.

I think we may have a surprise final this year, as Kellie is by no means out of this.
