You guys are starting to embarrass me with my ability to take pics. Keep posting the fantastic pics so I can learn a lot more.

You have some nice pics.

I cheat. I let the camera do the work. I always liked Canon colours, but never got one because I have a pile of Pentax and Nikon lenses. And the Olympus....when you bracket, it takes 9 shots, bracketing the exposure and the white balance. I just pick the best shot! But it sucks on landscapes. The Nikons are better, so I either use Progam mode, or aperature priority and then underexpose 1/2 step. Comes close to the Canons.

The Pentax...well! You take the picture. You call it up in the LCD. You change the exposure, the white balance, the colour weighting. Two reasons it's not my main camera. It has focusing issues, and I like it and don't want to burn it up. When it gets the focusing right the shots are beautiful! (The girl in the pool is one of my faves) Also, in Live View on the LCD, if you're shooting a landscape or still subject, you set it up, make whatever adjustments you want and shoot. And it plays games with bracketing as well. Also, if you can, use the HDR mode. The colours come out a little 'pushed', but definition is incredible. But it doesn't work as well with live subjects. The picture of the guy carrying the girl was an HDR shot, but is a bit mottled because they were moving.

I think my next one might be the Pentax K-1 Full Frame camera. But, there's an advantage to an APS-C sensor, which the K-r and the Nikons use. The definition isn't as great, but, you can take a fair 35mm format lens and still get a good shot, because it's made for full frame (35mm film) and the edges get cropped by the sensor. So, it uses the sweet spot of the lens. Most of my lenses are old 35mm units. But it also increases the focal length, so a 50mm lens is really more like a 70mm. In the smaller sensors, it's even greater. With the Olympus it's a 4/3 unit, so a 50mm is more like 90mm.

Do you know any satisfying profanity?!

The only time my camera is in auto is when it's recording video.
I always use mine on manual.
Come back from holiday and think all my photos are rubbish.

At 165 years old, I am most defiantly a cantankerous old Wolf.

Well, back in the goodle days when ALL cameras were manual, I had my Minolta so down pat it was almost like it WAS in Automatic.

My Fuji works well in Auto, as does the Pentax. The Nikons...UGH!

The picture of the train bridge was taken at sunrise and I'm now waiting for the right sunset sky for a shot from across the river. Going to the Outer Banks next week for a couple of days for both sunset and sunrise shots plus some night shots. Speaking of night shots..............
