What did I do wrong with theses photos. ICC info should be embedded. Nothing is in focus and it was a clear day. There was no haze but every photo has a haze.

Can't see the pictures. Post a few on here so we can see them.
Did you check the lens for fingerprints or something similar?

How do you size these at a decent size, quality, DPI?

The exif shows that they were shot in Tv mode, 1/2000 sec. ISO 800 and Exposure Compensation set to +1.

I think that the ISO 800 and Exp. Comp. +1 contributed to overexpose the images.

In good light, using something like ISO 100 and Exposure Compensation 0 may help.
Some times I use Exp. Comp. set to -1/3 for reacher colors/contrast.

Thanks and sorry for the inconvenience. The ICC should be embedded. These were all taken on a clear day. No haze. Every photo has haze and none are in focus. Can y'all tell me what I did wrong? Thank you.

Thank you Raphael (sp). Sorry if I misspelled your name. Tired, frustrated with Canon for not allowing a direct link, frustrated trying to get photos below 150kb, & bleary eyed. Thanks again.

I can't see the EXIF info, but the last image looks ok to me, but the rest, maybe too high of an iso? Not sure, just a guess. Trouble shooting isn't really my thing, but hey, its a try.

The images are simply way over-exposed. ISO 800 and +1 EC are a recipe for disaster on a bright sunny day. Like was previously mentioned....ISO 100 and 0 EC to start....you might even want to go to -1/3 to improve saturation a bit. If you are still getting whacked images with reasonable settings, then you might have a camera issue, but for now it looks more like user error.

I don't know the G line at all, but is there a way to attach a polarizing filter? I had an filter attachment for my Powershot A95. That type of environment is just perfect for a polarizer.

Why did you use Tv mode and a shutter speed of 1/2000 for this shot? You could easily lower the shutter speed for a shot like this and therefore use a much lower ISO.

Gil --

I agree with some of the others that you have overexposed here.

I have noticed from some of your other posts that you seem focused (sorry, no pun intended) on using high ISO. In my opinion you may want to consider using the lowest ISO you can for the given situation to get the lowest noise in your images. Also, in these scenes the bright highlights probably call for negative exposure compensation if anything; certainly not +1 EC.

Regarding haze, the only haze I can really see is in the distant hills. I'm sure it is really there, your eyes and brain just "filtered" it out from your perception.

I took literally 15 seconds with Photoshop elements to adjust levels, highlights, and sharpness and got this image. Looks to me as if you are doing just fine, you just need to learn a little more about technique. Don't forget to use your histogram!

They're just overexposed; learn how to read the histogram and you will get shots like this perfect every time.

I'm going to go out on a limb and make another suggestion for you. As a relatively new G11 user, this has been helpful for me:

Do most of your shooting in Programmed AE ("P") mode. I suggest this for a few reasons --

(1) Letting the camera select the settings frees your brain up to concentrate on composition and other aspects of your photography. (As you get more comfortable with the camera you can branch out to other modes.)

(2) P is superior to Full Auto in my opinion because (a) I think the camera tends to default to shutter speeds that are too low in Auto, and (b) you can't shoot RAW in Auto.

(3) If you don't like the setting the camera picks in P, all you have to do is hit the (*) button to lock the exposure and then use the adjustment wheel on the back to change settings. Once the exposure is locked with (*), the settings stay in sync and shutter speed will increase as you dial in a wider aperture and vice-versa.
