by looking at the horizon, it looks over sharpened to me. perhaps tone it down a bit?

which version did you buy. there are 3 different ones.

Photo Studio Ultimate 2018, took me a while to figure out what the differences were. They dint charge me gist, the other crowd did.

I really like that one - just a suggestion, see what you think it looks like with either: the seagull cropped off the top, or: the people cropped off the bottom.

Scott will be along shortly to comment on the horizon ;-)a

You are correct, lose the people! The horizon is straight, there is an optical illusion there! ;)

Edit... well nearly straight :cry:

Agreed, keep the bird, lose the people, and a quick straightening = great image. How did you do it with such an old camera?

Last night was a waste of time, I haven’t even bothered to transfer images to my computer.

Hey watch who yer callin' old! It was 9 yrs ago, the 400D wasn't that old then. Even then tho', not only could it do lots more than a film camera, I felt the early Rebel range was highly underated by all the pundits. The lens in mine, if you believed the reports, was hardly able to take a picture, let alone a decent one. In answer to your question tho' I still think in old skool, and in these I would have exposed for the sky. On the other hand The most regular stunning sunsets I have seen came in this region, taken from Foxton Beach and both the Canon and my Fuji S9500 managed good rich sunset pictures. It took somewhat longer on the Fuji than the Canon but. :)

Last night was a waste of time, I haven’t even bothered to transfer images to my computer.

We all have times like that, but here I am years later producing creditable images from stuff I thought back then, was perhaps a waste of time, but kept any way. Oh yes I meant to say, my ability with software has improved some over the time as well.

My first “real” digital camera was a 350D. I somehow managed to get some shots with the kit lens that are still among my favourite shots, like this one:

Yep I like that too Scott. The biggest problem was highlights were too easy to wash out, but modern software does a better job of recovery in that area.

Ready for takeoff! Had a blast learning to fly this afternoon. Now I need to learn to drive the camera on it.

There is an interesting story there. BTW I bought a smaller camera to make it easier to take with me! :p:rolleyes:

I don’t have a lot of interest in video (although that could change) mostly got it for interesting still perspectives.

I was suprised how easy it is to fly, but I’ll keep to open spaces for a while.

Here’s one with the G9 from earlier today:

That is primarily what I am interested in, can sit yet take landscapes with ocean, birds eye view of One Tree Hill etc.
