Hi Mark,
1). No i never use the Auto setting. All my picturess are taken in "A" mode or "M" mode.
2). Yes both of the flower shots were taken with the camera on a tri-pod and the shutter on a 10 second delay.
3).Yes both of these pictures were edited using the software that came with the camera (DPP) and cropped in Photoshop Elements. The editing that was done is just very minor things, contrast, sharpening, etc. Nothing major as I'm not the best at editting.

Thanks for looking and commenting. I hope this helps. If you have any more questions feel free to ask.

Very Nice and well done.

I don't own an SX50. Photos on this forum and others taken with an SX in capable hands show what a remarkable camera this can be for the price.

You mentioned you shoot in A and M mode. What do you think of the LCD screen in bright daylight? I have a G12 and find it non-useable. That leaves me in P mode using the viewfinder which works okay for my needs. M, Av and Tv mode is a non starter in those conitions.

Don't understand your question about the mode and LCD screen. As far as I know the mode you have the camera in does not affect the LCD screen. If your in "M" mode and your screen is dark you need to adjust you shutter and F stop until you exposure is correct.
