    Yeah, a Nikon Coolpix 4500. I shot these in Aperture priority to insure I got the whole thing in focus, a problem I'm having lately. Especially handheld, which these were because this sucker is 6 feet off the ground which is a tad taller than the tripod.

    A friend on another board pointed out that I'm a doofus and should have done these like this:

    She's probably right, but I'm blaming it on this killer head cold that has me home sick. I mean, ain't no way I'm taking the blame for being a bonehead! :lol:

    jim,

    I think I'd have to say I like them both ways. The first two give a sense of presence , while the last focuses directly on the object. I absolutley love the composition though.
