photo taking. Just to share a little I never really messed with cameras until I went to Ecuador in 2004 and decided to buy a digital Kodak 5.1 pics. I really began enjoying taking pics so a little over a year ago I bought a cool pics s1. It was okay for a while and in november I gave it to my wife and and bought the Canon G7 camera. Ive really enjoyed that camera but with my lack of experience I dont think im really putting all its functions to use properly and have really just learned about ISO and shutter speeds and so on in the last month or so. And finally for the last two weeks Ive been trying out more powerful cameras with powerful zooms. I just couldnt get used to using a DSRL without being able to use a view screen to take a picture. So I sent back the Nikon D50 with a 18-200mm lens. And finally really took a liking to the Panasonic FZ-50 and have that one coming to my door on Tuesday. Maybe in the future when Im a little more capable I will try a DSRL again. Well I hope to learn some great things here for our future trip to Germany later in the year. Here is a pic I took this morning that just caught my eye and had to whip out the G7. 1. And these two just messing around I took yesterday at work. Please take my pictures apart and tell me where I can improve. 2. 3.
